As a country synonymous with passion, love, and romance, Italy is the perfect place for couples wanting to host a destination wedding filled with history, culture, and incredible surroundings. To get your wedding planning process started (and to make it a tad bit simpler), Wedding Style’s travel and wedding experts have compiled a list of top destinations in Italy, ranging from sprawling villas to five-star hotels.
The list begins with two luxury hotels in Amalfi, where countless Wedding Style brides and grooms have chosen to tie the knot. Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi is a one-of-a-kind venue, located within a 13th century monastery perched on a clifftop 80 meters above the sea. The hotel’s special features, like its Arab-Norman cloister, creates a haunting, yet romantic ambiance with an old-world vibe. Alternatively, you may wish to host your Amalfi Coast wedding at Hotel Santa Caterina, where timeless elegance meets seaside relaxation.
If you prefer to book out a villa for you and your guests, our list includes more than a dozen exquisite villas from which to choose. Villa d’Este in Lake Como, where several of our couples have been married, is an architectural masterpiece dating back to the 16th century; and it has hosted and housed members of the aristocracy for hundreds of years. In Positano, Villa Treville offers a boutique hideaway for an unforgettable wedding weekend with loved ones. And if you’re looking for a truly epic destination wedding in Florence, spend an entire week at Il Palagio – Sting and Trudy Styler’s personal estate, which is home to an award-winning vineyard and roster of Italian wines.
From Tuscany to Lake Como, Sicily to Sardinia, any one of these wedding destinations is sure to impress your guests and set the stage for the perfect wedding in Italy.
