The fortress recently opened its doors to visitors after a five-year renovation. According to Lonely Planet, the site “hosts fabulous contemporary art exhibitions and the sweeping panorama from its walls is among the city’s most breathtaking.”
The report is the latest to suggest that Kimye’s nuptials will go down in Italy (rather than France). Italian news site Corriere Fiorentino also added that the couple will fork out some 300,000 euros (that’s about 410,850 USD) for the venue.
Earlier this week, both Entertainment Tonight and Us Weekly quoted sources confirming that Florence had been chosen as the wedding destination.
“Kim and Kanye have told all guests different info. No one knows all of the details,” another source told Us.
In even more Kimye news, the groom-to-be recently opened up to Florence (surprise, surprise) newspaper La Nazione — and perhaps shared a little too much.
“I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces,” West told the newspaper in a story published Friday.
“It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, for me the most beautiful in Europe.”
The new interview also finds West gushing over his muse (Kim) and what he gave her for Mother’s Day (a wall of flowers).
While the world waits another eight days for the wedding of the century, launch the gallery, above, for Kimye’s cutest couple moments.
Update at 12:30 p.m. EST: The Florence mayor’s office has confirmed that Kardashian and West will indeed wed and host a reception at the fortress on May 24. The ceremony will be led by a Protestant minister, spokeswoman Elisa Di Lupo told The Associated Press on Friday.
