Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will marry at a fort in the Italian city of Florence on May 24, it has been reported.
There has been much speculation about where the couple will tie the knot and there had been rumours the ceremony would be held at an opulent chateau in France.
But a spokeswoman at the Florence mayor’s office said Kardashian and West will get married at the imposing 16th century Belvedere Fort next weekend.
The couple have rented the newly renovated building, located next to Florence’s famed Boboli Gardens, for around243,000 ($410,000).
A source told People magazine that West has been in the Tuscan city this week making preparations for their big day.
The 36-year-old rapper proposed to the reality star on her 33rd birthday in October 2013 renting out San Francisco’s AT&T Park for the occasion.
There has been no confirmation from either of the celebrities but in an interview with Florence’s La Nazione newspaper, West extolled the beauty of Florence and said he was “very excited” about the nuptials.
He said he and Kardashian had come to Florence last year, incognito, and believed that their daughter, North, born in June 2013, was conceived “among the Renaissance masterpieces.”
The couple was featured on the cover of Vogue magazine’s April issue, with Kardashian wearing a wedding-style dress.
