Calabria

Destination Weddings in Calabria

Exchange your wedding vows in the lovely region of Calabria, adjacent to Basilicata in the south of Italy. Your wedding in Calabria is a chance to discover a quiet, historic part of the country – a romantic wedding in a picturesque location.

Small towns, villages and coastal resorts are scattered across the region, providing a good base from which to explore Calabria’s natural landscapes. The town of Cosenza is particularly recommended, located at the meeting point of the Crati and Busento rivers, and surrounded by mountains on all sides.

The northern Ionian coast of the region features some historic castles, dramatic wooded and mountainous landscapes, and the pretty medieval village of Oriolo. The abandoned castle at the Rocca Imperiale is an impressive sight, as is the Monte Pollino mountain.

Several lovely beaches line the northern Tyrrhenian coast, alongside coastal resorts and quiet seaside towns such as Diamante and Cirella. There are also many caves and grottos to discover along this part of the Italian coastline, particularly in the area around the town of Praia A Mare.

Moving further south, there are a number of centuries-old castles, beaches and quiet villages to visit. For lovely views of Sicily, your best choice is Palmi, a town in the Reggio di Calabria province. Palmi is best known for the superb museum complex set just above the town. The museum’s eclectic collections include archaeology, folklore items, paintings, sculpture and modern art.

Southern Italy is charming and picturesque, and your wedding in Calabria is the perfect opportunity to uncover the delights of this lovely region. The dramatic and virtually unspoiled landscape provides a wonderful backdrop for your wedding celebrations.
