THE ADVENTURE BEGINS

Destination Sicily!

Why Sicily?

I mean, who doesn't dream of getting married in a place as enchanting as Sicily? Right!? That being said, there is more to why Christian and Maria selected Sicily as their special place to say, 'I do'.

Maria's family lineage, the Provenzano side of her family, has origins in Sicily. Christian thought this would be a fantastic way to honor Maria's heritage, and introduce their daughters to a lost part of their ancestry.

How to get there?

The best way to get to Sicily is via Rome.

We recommend you take your flight from the US to Rome's Leonardo da Vinci Airport (FCO). From Rome, you can book with one of the European airlines (RyanAir, WizzAir, ITA) to Catania – you'll be flying into Aeroporto Catania-Fontanarossa.

If you want to take in a little more of this "Bael Paese," consider renting a car and driving the countryside, taking a scenic train ride, or doing some island-hopping on a ferry.

Where to stay?

These are a few of the top places recommended to us in and around our church (Savoca) and villa (near Catania & Taormina):

(Airbnb has great stays, as well.)

Day-Of Transportation?

We've arranged transportation for you. You'll be picked up at select locations and chauffeured to the ceremony, then afterwards to our villa for the reception. Time and locations will be announced, soon.

Is there a dress code?

We've been getting asked that a lot and our short answer is: 'dress in what makes you feel phenomenal!' If you need some inspiration, head over to Pinterest and check out "semi-formal wedding attire", or "destination wedding attire". Also, Sicily is somewhat chilly in February (~55°-75°), so plan on complimenting your outfit with something to keep you warm.

What About COVID?

Sicily, is currently in yellow alert, and has the following requirements:

  • You must fill out a Self-Declaration Form to enter the country
  • You must fill out a Passenger Locator Form to receive a QR code
  • You must wear an FFP2 Mask at all times
  • You must provide proof of vaccination (valid 9 months from final dose); your vaccine record will be used in lieu of the Green Pass
  • You must provide proof of negative test, taken within 72 hours of arrival (PCR) or within 24 hours of arrival (antigen)
  • Children under six years old do not have to take a test
  • Those who do not present the correct evidence -- or unvaccinated arrivals -- must quarantine for five days, and test at the start and end of quarantine
  • Non-vaccinated children under 12 do not have to quarantine, as long as they are traveling with fully vaccinated adults

NOTE: If you plan on doing any sightseeing in Italy, please make sure you book ahead, as many places now require reservations, have limited capacity, and are adjusting their hours of operation to conform to local guidelines.
