Italy offers unique beauties that every year attract millions of tourists from all over the world. People visit this country for its artistic masterpieces, tasty food and so on.. When it come to weddings, Italy can offer amazing locations, for foreigners and Italians too, to celebrate the best day of their life. Let’s take a look together at the best locations in Italy for a dreamy wedding.
Wedding in the north
Northern Italy offers breathtaking sites at the mountain, on the hills and valleys. If you want to go back in time, the Villa Reale di Monza is a really dreamy location. It was made in 18th century and it belonged to Arciduca Ferdinando d’Asburgo. In 2014, after two years of restoration works, it opened to the public holding cultural exhibitions and events. Inside you can book a Savoia’s boardroom where you’ll have the ceremony. However, the prices vary depending on the accommodation you choose.
For those who like theatres or unusual weddings, Teatro Carignano in Turin is a very original idea. It was built between 17th and 18th century, it’s the oldest theatre in the area and it opened for civil rituals in 2010. However, there are some limits: marriages take place only on Saturday afternoons and the main room has a maximum capacity of 150 people. It’s definitely worth it, especially because you can have the ceremony in a sophisticate garden and the happy hour in the beautiful Sala delle Colonne.
If you like traditional fairytales, in a valley near Verona there is Castello Bevilacqua, dated 1336. This fortress suffered wars and fires, but it managed to preserve its beauty during the years. Inside the castle you can have both the ceremony and the party. Another interesting site near Milan, in Lainate, is Villa Visconti Borromeo Litta, dated back to 16th century. You can celebrate your wedding in Sala Blu or Sala degli Specchi. The only drawback is that they don’t celebrate weddings on Sunday.
