Destination Weddings in Finale Ligure

Hugging the warm coast of the Mediterranean, in the gulf of Genoa not too far from Monaco and the border with France, lies the lovely and charming seaside village of Finale Ligure. Finale Ligure is a holiday town, a place where Italians and non-Italians alike come to spend warm, lazy summer days, to soak up both the sun and the rich cultural heritage of the area.

When you hold your wedding ceremony in the quaint and beautiful seaside town of Finale Ligure you will actually be getting the charm of three distinct villages all rolled into one.

Technically speaking, Finale Ligure is actually three small villages rolled into one, with each section of the town retaining its own unique cultural and historical identity. The two parts of the town which lie right on the ocean and are the most modern, are Finale Ligure and Finale Pia. These two towns have a broad palm-tree-lined expanse for strolling along the white sand beach, lined with shops and ice cream stands and small cafes.

Extending inland about two kilometers is the third section of Finale Ligure, known as Finalborgo, the most ancient part of the city. Finalborgo is the old walled town, built hundreds of years ago when this section of coast was subject to raids by pirates. Standing atop an imposing hill with a view of the entire town and the blue Mediterranean Sea beyond, stands the ancient Spanish castle, Castle St. Giovanni. From this lofty perch the lord of the town could keep watch over his village and signal a warning at the first sign of marauders.

The many facets of Finale Ligure offer almost unlimited possibilities for unique, dramatic, romantic and memorable wedding photos.

Ancient castle ruins still sit atop the bluffs overlooking the beach, providing unique and dramatic backdrops for the many wedding photos taken in this seaside resort.

In the middle of Finale Ligure, dominating the town square like a medieval guardian angel stands the beautiful and ornate Church of San Giovanni Battista. Completed in the year 1675, the Church of San Giovanni Battista has served this seaside community for more than 300 years and is an incredible photo background.

Finale Ligure is a wonderful and warm place to hold your wedding. The people are friendly, the sun shines almost the entire year, and the sand and the sea are as inviting today as they were a thousand years ago when Greek and Roman soldiers fought over these beautiful shores.
