Italy is a country full of history and nature, filled with great scenarios and wonderful places where to get married! We can organize all kinds of weddings: religious (Catholic, Jewish, Protestant, Orthodox) or not (civil, symbolic), themed, stylish, historic, colorful, tailor-made to fit a specific passion of the couple such as diving, skiing, cycling…the reception can take place in a villa, in a castle, in a hotel, in a restaurant, in a farm, on a ship, in an aquarium, on a wonderful beach, in a museum.. It’s up to you! The possibilities are endless!
That said, each single region has its own characteristics, its own strengths, starting from the north:
Piemonte is located in the northwestern part of Italy, near the border with Switzerland and France. It is mostly a land of mountains, with the highest peaks and the largest glaciers of Italy, the perfect location for winter sports enthusiasts.
On the other hand though, in this region we also find the Langhe and Monferrato: a succession of hills covered with vineyards, and dotted with villages and castles. Ever heard of Barolo, Chardonnai, Pinot grigio and nero, Muller Turgau, Moscato, Barbera? These are all the wines that are produced in Piemonte and sold all over the world!
Ponds and paddy fields, long rows of poplars and old farmhouses are the typical scenarios of the plains that extend from Novara to Vercelli. Top tourism destination are Lago Maggiore, Stresa and the Borromean Islands, perfect locations for a charming, romantic wedding.
Veneto extends from the Dolomites all the way to the Adriatic Sea and the river Po delta. The typical landscape here is the lagoon but we can also find long, sandy beaches and seaside SPA resorts in towns such as Jesolo, Bibione, Cavallino, Caorle.
But the reason why almost everyone in the world wishes, at least once in a lifetime, to journey to Veneto is the unique city of Venice, world known touristic destination, visited annually by thousands of Italian and foreigners. This is the ideal destination for a romantic, extraordinarily elegant wedding! Imagine the bride and the groom getting to the venue of the ceremony by gondola (the typical black, long boats) along the canals and the guests waiting on the dock! What a dream!
Liguria lies on the border with France, and is a land of towering mountains and rolling hills colored by the green Mediterranean vegetation and overlooking the sea. With more than 300 km of coastline, it encompasses famous touristic destinations such as The Cinque Terre, Genova, Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure, Rapallo, Sestri Levante, with its charming Baia del Silenzio, and Chiavari. Sanremo, the city of flowers, famous for the Italian Music Festival and for its Casinos, Portovenere and Lerici with its great medieval castle, its elegant villas and gardens is a must for any tourist.
A region which offers many touristic attractions: green countryside, sea, mountains as well as a vast culinary tradition and entertainment: the choice is endless! We recommend it mostly for the beautiful coastal seaside, with its cliffs interrupted by small coves and pretty, small, sandy beaches and the colorful fisherman’s villages. Combine all this with a dish of trofie al pesto, fresh fish and a typical focaccia, and you have a dream come true.
Can you imagine getting married on the beach and then having a seafood based reception with great wine and then why not, a midnight swim? Wow!
Thanks to the contrast between the mountains and the seaside, Emilia Romagna offers visitors breathtaking views, both for the eyes and for the spirit, in a mixture of colors and perfumes, of food and wine, of joy and music, cinema and art. This is truly the hearth of the Italian culinary culture, where cheeses such as Grana Padano and Parmigiano Reggiano, cold cuts such as Prosciutto crudo, piadinas, tortellini and wines such as Lambrusco are produced and can be enjoyed at their freshest.
Those who love the seaside, and who’s ideal vacation includes sun and fun on the beach, will be extra pleased choosing the Adriatic coast, the longest beach of Europe, where you can enjoy an infinite choice of well-equipped facilities for sports and leisure in towns such as Rimini, Riccione, Cattolica.

Latium is a region in central Italy characterized by a predominantly hilly or mountainous territory, that becomes flat and sandy towards the coast. At the hearth of Lazio lies Roma: cradle of the Western civilization and the Christian culture.
The city has always played a fundamental historical, political and even religious role, so much so that in Roman times it was given the nick-name “Caput Mundi” (head of the world), that Saint Peter established it as the center of Christianity and the home of the Pope, making it the only city in the world to accommodate within its borders a foreign state, the Vatican, and that the newborn state of Italy established it as its capital in 1871. Over 16% of the world’s cultural heritage is located in Rome. It is the city with the highest concentration of historical and architectural monuments and sites in the world; the old town hosts overlapping testimonies of almost three millennia and in 1980 was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
