Getting married in an Italian castle

Getting married in a castle, like in a real fairy tale! The charm that these locations have on all of us is undeniable. This is why organizing the wedding in a castle is the dream of many couples. Our team can help you make it happen!

Rent a castle in Italy for the wedding

The majority of the castles you can find in Italy are original buildings dating back to the Middle Ages or the Renaissance. Many of them belong to the same family for generations and are cared for in every detail with love and dedication.

Renting a castle in Italy for your wedding will leave all your guests speechless. Surrounded by greenery and immersed in centuries of history, the castle is the ideal location for a princely, romantic and elegant event. A day in which to feel protagonists of a fairy tale: your love story!

The Italian fortresses from Rome to Sicily

Among the Italian castles that are most suitable for hosting weddings, it is impossible not to mention the magical Castle of Bracciano, or Odescalchi Castle, a few kilometers from Rome, offers a unique atmosphere and a wonderful view of the lake. Its large spaces are perfect for glamorous receptions with many guests.

Moving to Puglia we find Castello Monaci, a fortress that stands between vines and olive trees a short distance from the sea of Salento. Further south, in Sicily, there is the Castello Xirumi. This fortress has a very special charm given by the mix of Mediterranean and arabesque details and decorations. A mix dictated by its history and that of the region.

Tuscan castle wedding

Despite these beauties, the castles of Tuscany remain our favorites! Time, here, seems to stop and the frenzy of modern life is unknown. They are places of peace where nature is the absolute protagonist. Getting married in a castle in Tuscany also allows you to take advantage of the local cuisine and wine, a true Italian excellence!

Among the most suggestive are the Castello di Bibbione and the Castello di Meleto, both surrounded by the noble Chianti countryside and which produce the typical specialties of this area on site. The Castello di Vicarello is instead located in the wildest Maremma. From the most elegant and princely style is instead the Castello di Celsa, a short distance from Siena.

Why get married in a castle

Why choose a castle to organize the wedding? If the magnificent places we have mentioned have not convinced you yet, know that each fortress has a different story to tell and a unique style: towers, walls, stones and centenary chimneys, beautiful gardens and a panoramic view that leaves you breathless. The frescoed rooms, the ancient walls… this would be enough to make your wedding an exclusive event.

In addition, these spaces lend themselves very well to a personalization with colors, flowers and details chosen by you and that will make them the ideal place for the ceremony and the party.
