America's Charles and Camilla, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, are expected to marry this Saturday in Florence, Italy where, two years ago, their daughter North was conceived as they performed unspeakable acts upon each other in the shadow of van der Weyden's "Lamentation of Christ." A spokesperson for the mayor's office told the Associated Press the couple paid $410,000 to rent out a 16th century fortification called the Forte di Belvedere. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, an insider revealed to Us Weekly that the wedding will be "like a princess fairytale day."
What level fairytale does $410,000 buy these days?
While many past TripAdvisor users have praised the fort for its sweeping panoramic views, others have complained that it is a very long climb to reach the entrance. Some have admired the breath-taking Tuscan sunsets, while others note that the drink selection is lackluster. Is it worth the €5 price of admission? People are divided.
Set against the backdrop of stunning Florence, here are some excerpts from TripAdvisor reviews of the Forte di Belvedere, currently ranked #73 out of 217 attractions in Florence. Remarks have been (Google) translated from the original Italian and French where applicable.
