Situated in the small village of Dongo, you and your loved ones (the villa has 12 beds) can enjoy the villa, the gardens, and the pool in between celebrations or take to Dongo to indulge in delicious food and drinks or cooking classes.

Villa Troubetzkoy

Why we love it: For those who prefer a countryside wedding–while still looking to be close to a major city–Villa Troubetzkoy may be the perfect choice. The 17th-century home is nestled in the Venetian countryside and is complete with nine bedrooms, six bathrooms, and serene gardens that make for the ideal spot to say “I do.”

Villa Clodia Relais  

Where: Rome

Why we love it: Although this one isn’t technically in Rome, it sits in the heart of Roman Tuscia, the borderline between Rome and Viterbo. With multiple different wedding spaces to choose from–like the Terrace, the Old Oak, or the Portico–you can tailor your wedding here specifically to your vision. The best part? The property is also a hotel, so all of your guests can stay on the property and be together for trips into the city to see The Colosseum and Trevi Fountain.

Villa del Bono 

Where: Milan

Why we love it: Designed by architect Cecilio Arpesani, Villa del Bono was inspired by the Florentine Renaissance and is complete with all the beautiful touches you’d expect to find in an Italian villa. The villa itself can host up to 150 guests, but if you’re looking for something bigger, the park surrounding the house can host events for up to 500 guests. Oh, and did we mention it has a swimming pool that you can cool off that’s the epitome of idyllic?

Portofino Italy Wedding venue

Abbazia La Cervara 

Where: Portofino

Why we love it: A view overlooking the coast and picturesque gardens–what more could you want in a wedding venue? If the pictures don’t sell you on this stunning venue, then maybe the huge Noble Floor with four exclusive suites, a large living room, and a private kitchen may. Or the fact that Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino have a variety of hotels for your guests, all within five minutes.

Villa Treville  

Where: Positano

Why we love it: The Amalfi Coat is one of the hottest vacation destinations in the world, so it’s no surprise that it’s becoming a popular wedding destination, too. As the former home of the Italian director Franco Zeffirelli, this boutique hotel is sure to exceed your expectations. You can host your reception under the stars at Maestro’s Restaurant after saying “I do” overlooking the Mediterranean.

Tuscany Italy wedding venue

Borgo Santo Pietro 

Where: Tuscany

Why we love it: Located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, Borgo Santo Pietro is the perfect venue because you can explore Tuscany and Siena. Host your ceremony at the abbey ruins of San Galgano, the church of Montesiepi, or on property in the gardens or one of their many beautiful rooms.

Castello di Vicarello 

Where: Tuscany

Why we love it: Calling everyone who wants to get married in a castle. Castello di Vicarello sits in the southernmost part of Tuscany on the rolling hills of the countryside. Because of its secluded location, it’s ideal for those who want something a little more intimate. Tie the knot in the gardens or one of the nearby churches before enjoying a delicious 3-course al fresco meal with your loved ones.

Villa San Michele  

Where: Florence

Why we love it: Sitting only 10 minutes away from the heart of Florence lies Villa San Michele, a Renaissance Villa hotel that offers some of the most stunning views you’ll find in Italy.

So you know you’re going to be eating well.

Ravello Italy wedding venue

Villa Cimbrone  

Where: Ravello

Why we love it: The Amalfi Coast–Positano, specifically– can be extremely packed during peak season. And while some people don’t mind the crowds, if you’re hoping to beat the tourists, consider opting for a Ravello wedding, another resort town on the Amalfi coast. At Villa Cimbrone, you can tie the knot in the stunning gardens on the terrace overlooking the water. No matter what you prefer, this 12th-century palace is sure to sweep you off your feet. 

Villa Astor  

Where: Sorento

Why we love it: A seafront villa with 270º views of the Bay of Naples–does it get any better than that? Villa Astor’s history can be traced back to the first century A.D., and it was purchased by Lord William Waldorf Astor in 1905. Since then, it has welcomed countless notable visitors, including Princess Margaret, and has been named a dream vacation home by publications such as Forbes, Town & Country, and more. One look at the property, and it’s not hard to see why.

Puglia Italy wedding venue

Masseria Potenti  

Where: Puglia

Why we love it: Picture this–gorgeous white and stone architecture set against the Ionian Sea and rows of olive trees and vineyards. That’s exactly what Masseria Potenti offers its couples. Whether you exchange vows in the orangery, in the Androna Porch, or under the Agavi Portico, this 16th-century Masseria is as magical as it sounds.

Tonnara di Scopello

Where: Sicily 

Why we love it: This lovingly restored fishing village is surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, making it arguably one of the most beautiful venues on this list. With fifteen newly refurbished apartments, you and your closest friends and family can stay in Sicily, enjoy aperitifs at sunset, and hear the water gently beating the shore late into the evening–talk about serene.

Venice Italy wedding venue

Aman Hotel 

Where: Venice

Why we love it: Venice has so much to offer, and if you’re hoping to give your guests the authentic Italian experience, it’s one of the best cities to host your wedding. Not only do they get to be in the hustle and bustle of a bigger city, but they also get to experience one of Italy’s most famous destinations. The Aman Hotel is nestled in the San Polo quarter of the city and is one of the most iconic hotels you’ll come across, thanks to its views of the Grand Canal, elegant ballrooms, and the homey feel that it offers. There’s a reason George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin celebrated their wedding here.

Villa Aurelia  

Where: Rome

Why we love it: Speaking of cities, if Rome is more of what you envisioned for your big day, consider Villa Aurelia. It’s set on the highest point within the walls of Rome, giving you panoramic views of the city. Because the views are too incredible to pass, we know you’ll want to stay up all night enjoying them–and lucky for you, you can. Stay up with your guests, dancing and chatting until 2 AM. Oh, and did we mention they’re open to letting you use any vendor you want? This way, you can personalize your wedding exactly how you want it.

These Italy wedding venues are just scratching the surface. If it were up to us, this list would be much longer, but we aim to make the wedding planning process easier for you.
