Welcome to Perugia, the beating heart of Umbria

Italian wedding in Umbria

Umbria is one of the central regions of Italy, together with Tuscany the region is known for the luxuriant scenery and the vivid green hills. For this reason that it is called the Green Heart of the Peninsula.

Perugia is the most important city in Umbria as its architectural and artistic patrimony is really impressive. The capitol of the region is a lively medieval walled hill town with historic buildings where Etruscan ruins are also preserved. The city is rich of churches, gardens, typical restaurants and there is also a famous university for foreign people.

This is one of the reasons why this pretty town is so well known abroad.

One of the attractions that really catches the attention of the visitor is the beautiful Piazza IV Novembre, a large open square where locals and visitors usually meet in the evening. In the centre there is a beautiful fountain,  Fontana Maggiore, on the sides the Duomo, the city’s main Abbey, ancient Palazzo dei Priori, and medieval buildings with little art craft shops and bars. At the end of the town’s main walk you can take a deep breath and admire a stunning view of the countryside from the old terrace, from here all the different colors of the region lay before your eyes.

If you are dreaming about getting married in Italy, in the countryside, surrounded by nature and interesting cities to visit…Umbria is definitely the right place for your wedding!

You and your guests can easily reach Perugia and many other well known touristy destination such as Assisi, Todi or Gubbio thanks to the train station and the small but efficient airport connected with important cities like Milan, Rome, London and Paris. It is incredible to know that with few hours of flight one can reach this authentic and unspoilt area making it an easy-to-reach wedding destination!

The civil or religious ceremony can be arranged in the town itself, there are many stunning churches to choose from and the lovely town hall for the civil wedding ceremony.

One of the reception venues we love most is a castle located just a couple of kilometres from the heart of Perugia, ideal location for your unforgettable party!

The castle is amazing, the well groomed garden houses more than two hundred plants of roses and a romantic terrace overlooking the Umbrian countryside within the century’s oaks that protect the two cloisters. The park is a fairytale background for wedding pictures especially in Spring and Summer.

The restaurant within the castle can host 100 guests and it offers indoor or outdoor areas for the wedding reception. The wedding cake is often set by the pool as this natural terrace offers again stunning sights of the countryside with the soft twinkling lights that make a natural backdrop scenery

One of the features that couple love most about the venue is that it also offers 18 rooms, each one has a different history and features that underline its uniqueness; they can be available for your guests while for you the Castle will offer two possible stunning suites.

It also has a small relaxing SPA area to use during your staying as a relaxing area where you can get ready or chill out after the event!
