Italy as a whole country is extremely popular for weddings abroad. If you’re considering holding your ceremony at an Italian venue to enjoy the culture, food and history on offer then you might want to consider a few of the following key places.
An obvious one to begin with, the iconic capital city is densely packed with rich culture as well as vibrant nightlife that will make any hen or stag party one to remember. The Castello della Castelluccia is a medieval castle with fabulous gardens situated only a couple of miles from the centre of Rome, making it an ideal choice for magical weddings. Alternatively you could opt for the Villa Grazioli hotel, a stunning 16th century building in the centre of a lush green park that’s perfect for hosting weddings.
For a change from the busy city of Rome and its surroundings, Tuscany is more focused on the natural landscape including rolling hills and vineyards for miles. For a traditional but modern wedding, somewhere like the Villa Magi close to Siena and Arezzo is maintained to a very high standard. Villa Podernovo nearby is more suited to charming countryside weddings with a more historical and rustic design that’s nonetheless immaculate.
One of the most romantic locations in the world, let alone just Italy, Venice is known as an ideal place to hold a wedding. It’s decorative bridges, relaxing gondola rides and boutique shopping scene make it a wonderful place to spend the time before and after the big day with all your guests. There are also many venues to hold the ceremony itself at, such as the five star Ca’Sagredo Hotel overlooking the Grand Canal, or the Molino Stucky Hilton on Giudecca Island with multiple function rooms and top of the range wedding hosting facilities.
