Destination Weddings in Trentino-Alto Adige
This mountainous area is equally beautiful winter or summer. We think the Trentino with its Alps and lakes is spectacular with sweeping views and a truly authentic atmosphere. Consider a romantic Snow Wedding ceremony or come in summer when the mountains are bursting with wildflowers to explore Alpine villages and savoring a lifestyle that has disappeared from much of Europe but still lingers here.
A fascinating part of the country, Trentino-Alto Adige is a wonderful place to get married in Italy. Formerly belonging to Austria, Alto Adige was handed over to Italy in the early 20th century and is now a bilingual region with a pervasive Austrian influence. Celebrating your wedding here is the perfect way to discover more of this unique blend of cultures.
The regional capital is Bolzano, in the south, at the meeting point of the Isarco and Talvera rivers. This friendly, relaxed town is a good base from which to explore the nearby mountains. Bolzano has some lovely, typically Italian pavement cafés, and the local wine is highly recommended, particularly the Chardonnay.
North of Bolzano is the Alpe di Siusi area, which includes Europe’s largest Alpine plateau, the Hauenstein forest, unspoiled woods, wetlands, valleys and mountains. Wonderful views extend in every direction.
More superb scenery surrounds the spa town of Merano, sheltered by mountains. Merano is a great place, with many paths and gardens that are perfect for walks. There is also a Thermal Center in the town, offering water cures, plus lots of shopping opportunities, a Gothic cathedral and a 15th century castle.
Two mountain ranges are located close to Merano, Ortles and Giogaia di Tessa. The former is entirely contained within the Stelvio National Park. This park features a dizzyingly high Alpine pass, a huge glacier, valleys, walking trails and a great variety of wildlife, including deer, elk and golden eagles.
Skiing is popular in many parts of Trentino Alto Adige. Madonna di Campiglio, San Martino di Castrozza, Ortisei and Merano are just a few of the ski resorts that you can visit in this area.
This region, in the north of the country, is where Austrian and Italian cultures meet and intermingle. It is a lovely part of Italy, and your wedding in Alto Adige is a chance to experience all of this for yourself.
