The Big Fat Virushka Wedding: Where Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma got married

By Deepak K - December 12, 2017

A few days back, the internet was overflowing with reports of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma supposedly planning a private wedding in Italy. While the whole news sounded just like any other baseless rumour, it turned out to be true. Confirming the news, the celebrity couple tweeted their wedding photos on 11th December which we can’t stop ogling at.

Yes! They got married in beautiful Italy!

But wait, it’s not just them. The gorgeous heritage villa of Borgo Finocchieto where the couple got married looks equally splendid. Here is everything that you need to know about the hush-hush intimate location where Virushka got married.

Originally a farming village, Borgo Finocchieto is an eight-hundred-year-old heritage village restored to perfection by John Phillips, the owner of the Borgo. And it all didn’t happen overnight. The extensive restoration of the unique Tuscan property took John Phillips a solid eight years. But the elegance that it possesses now is worth an eternity.

Sitting on a rural hillside overlooking a scenic display of villages, valleys, and lush green pastures, Borgo Finocchieto in the province of Siena exudes with a contagious Tuscan vibe that is steeped in history and it is hard not to fall in love.

The inescapable beauty of Borgo made it a natural gathering place for the locals. Decorated with five characteristic villas around the central piazza, Borgo Finocchieto today is a community in itself.
