Why not get married on this beautiful Italian isle with a Sicily wedding?
The Mediterranean’s largest island, and truly a place apart, makes weddings in Sicily an ideal Italian marriage location.
“To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything”, wrote Goethe in his Italian Journey after having visited Sicily in 1787.
Sicily weddings, as with the rest of the island’s architecture, cuisine and language, bear the imprint of a myriad of influences over the centuries, from Greek to Arabic and Roman to Spanish. Fragrant orange and lemon groves scent the air of this undeniably romantic wedding location in Europe.
Sicily’s capital, Palermo, is a busy and exciting city with a huge amount to see and do. The Normans had a vital influence on the city, which is evident through its fabulous architecture. The historic streets and markets, monuments, museums and churches are fascinating to discover. There are many wedding traditions and locations in Sicily than blend in with all the sightseeing opportunities available in this unique marriage location.
Palermo is a good starting point where to plan a wedding in Sicily. You can explore the mountains, rugged coastline and quiet towns of the Tyrrhenian coast. You could get even further away from it all on the remote Aeolian Islands, just a short boat trip away.
The Ionian coast, meanwhile, is dominated by massive Mount Etna and has many highlights. A wander amongst Etna’s foothills is a must, as is a visit to the nearby ancient ruins. These include Siracusa, once the most important and beautiful city in the Greek world. The chic resort of Taormina is another very popular Sicilian wedding destination for Europeans and Americans.
The southern coast also has much to recommend it for Italian weddings in Sicily, from small resorts to ancient Greek relics and the lovely Baroque towns of Ragusa, Modica and Noto.
The west of the island, by contrast, has a palpably Arabic feel to its landscape and architecture. Yet another one of the diverse reasons why you should choose this exotic island as a marriage location for an unforgettable wedding in Italy.
