ROME (AP) - A spokeswoman at the Florence mayor's office says Kim Kardashian and Kayne West will get married at Florence's 16th-century Belvedere Fort on May 24.
Spokeswoman Elisa Di Lupo says the couple rented the fort, located next to Florence's famed Boboli Gardens, for $410,000. Di Lupo said a Protestant minister will preside.
The 36-year-old rapper proposed to the reality star on her 33rd birthday in October, renting out San Francisco's AT&T Park for the occasion.
This is the first marriage for West, who was previously engaged to designer Alexis Phifer. It's the third trip down the aisle for Kardashian.
In an interview with Florence's La Nazione newspaper Friday, West extolled the beauty of Florence and said he was "very excited" about the May 24 nuptials.
