Imagine celebrating your wedding in one of Italy's countless medieval castles and villages: let yourselves be seduced by the hidden charms of Italy, by that priceless treasure trove of history, art and natural wonders embodied in the ancient villages and small towns to be found up and down the Italian peninsula, often of Medieval or Renaissance, or even Roman origin, which welcome delighted visitors from all over the world.

What better setting could there be, for a once-in-a-lifetime event like a wedding, than an ancient castle on top of a hill, a stately villa with frescoed halls and magnificent gardens, a cool piazza that opens onto a network of narrow cobbled lanes in a small historic center.

From Vernazza to Asolo, from Volterra to San Gimignano, from Sperlonga to Castel del Monte, it's impossible to draw up a full list of historic centers with unique features and a glorious past that

make Italy the "Bel Paese" (Beautiful Country). Often these are places immortalized by poets such as Goethe and Browning, or depicted by painters and artists over the centuries, from Giorgione to Corot. The countless castles from the north to the south of Italy, such as the castles of Bracciano, Donnafugata in Ragusa, Bevilacqua Castle in Verona, are buildings where the atmosphere has an ancient, romantic and mysterious flavor, ideal for celebrating memorable events like a wedding in a castle within their centuries-old walls.

Guided by an organizational approach that makes being Italian an undeniable bonus, the professionals at The Opera Wedding know how to transform the most beautiful villages in Italy and their castles into the most exclusive and elegant wedding venue in Italy, perfect settings for weddings bathed in a timeless charm.
