The star of the Neapolitan Riviera, Sorrento is one of the most-loved wedding destinations in Italy. Its magical clifftop setting creates the perfect backdrop for photos, with sweet-smelling lemon groves, colourful gardens and villas gazing out across the Bay of Naples. You can also get married in Piano di Sorrento, a little coastal commune on the outskirts of Sorrento that’s ideal for intimate ceremonies.
Civil ceremonies in the 13th-century Cloisters of San Francisco are performed in the open-air courtyard, with atmospheric arches draped in bougainvillea and beautiful gardens beyond. After your ‘I do’s, drink in the views (and some champagne) on the venue’s terrace, with its breathtaking views of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
San Francesco Cloisters, Sorrento capacity: seats up to 50 guests.
In Piano di Sorrento, weddings are held at Villa Fondi, a neoclassical villa in a spectacular cliff-side location. Your ceremony will be held beneath the shady trees on the terrace, overlooking the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, or within the elegant villa itself.
Villa Fondi capacity: The garden can hold up to 100 guests standing or 50 seated. The indoor wedding room can seat 30 people or 50 standing. The terrace can hold up to 50 people standing.
The Museo Correale is a unique and historic venue for a wedding. The ceremony can be performed in one of the villa’s museum rooms, filled with collections of 18th-century Neapolitan art, or outside in the fragrant, colourful gardens and citrus groves.
Museo Correale capacity: Seats up to 60 people inside and up to 80 people in the gardens.
