Pre-Ring Fling: Il Salviatino Launches 'Bridal Escape' Package

Award-winning Italian villa, Il Salviatino, is pleased to announce ‘The Bridal Escape’ – a stylish new package offering relaxation and bonding for brides-to-be and their best pals before the big day.  This mini-break includes a VIP itinerary filled with personal shopping, fine-dining, sophisticated nightlife and spa tranquillity from check-in to check-out, allowing a bride and her dearest friends to reflect happily on the past and delight in the future.

Il Salviatino is located in the secluded hills of Florence. The villa’s beautifully manicured gardens, intimate style and impeccable service make it the ideal place to relax before saying ‘I do’.  Royal treatment begins upon pickup at the Florenceairport with a private chauffer to the resort, where guests are greeted with Pink Spumante champagne. Once settled into their luxurious suites, the group will embark on a VIP personal shopping experience hosted by an Italian fashion insider. Perfect for personal shopping or last-minute wedding purchases, the outing will provide exclusive access to coveted fashion finds in the city’s backstreet boutiques and vibrant clothes markets.

After shopping, the group can unwind at Spa Il Salviatino with blissful treatments by skilled therapists. From massages to manicures, facials to full body scrubs, brides and their guests can luxuriate from head to toe with services and products crafted by acclaimed Florentine cosmetologist Dr. Vranjes.

Of course, no girls’ weekend is complete without a night out on the town. As part of the Bridal Escape, guests will enjoy a private chauffeured escort to the city’s best clubs, bars and restaurants for a truly VIP evening in Florence.
