Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel had quite a few fun-filled days leading up to their big Italian wedding on Oct. 19.
Life & Style can exclusively reveal that the married couple dished out nearly $12,000 to take their wedding guests on a daylong excursion on Oct. 18, one day before they tied the knot.
"They were shuttled from their hotel to the caves at Lama del Trappeto [see inset photo above] and were treated to a performance of The Living Nativity, one of the main attractions in the area. Dozens of actors dressed up and put the show for them," an eyewitness tells Life & Style. "They paid about 9,000 Euro for the activity!"
And just like their party on the evening of Oct. 17, the outing also included some yummy meals.
"Guests went crazy for the pasta with chickpeas and fava beans sprinkled with chili pepper," the eyewitness says. "They had a buffet of local dishes for lunch, including buffalo mozzarella and friselle, which is a type of local hard-baked, savory bread. It seemed like a really traditional experience."
As Life & Style previously reported, the couple married in southern Italy on Oct. 19 after five years of dating.
