Montefalco

Destination Weddings in Montefalco

Perched on the top of a hill like a falcon and surrounded by one of the typical majestic medieval walls – Montefalco is know as “Umbria’s balcony”.

Montefalco means falcon-mountain in Italian – a reference to the breathtaking 360 degree views that the town offers rising 473 meters above sea level. Montefalco is an enchanting Renaissance citadel lined with palazzo, porticos and a beautiful Gothic church on its main piazza. Strolling through its narrow streets lined with artisan shops is a perfect way of savouring the authentic atmosphere of this Umbrian town.

Every year the town celebrates “La corsa dei bovi” and many come to because of its renowned red wine “Sagrantino”.

The views from the top of Montefalco take in the rolling hills covered by olive groves, vineyards; and bright yellow fields of sunflowers. Montefalco is the ideal quiet wedding location in Italy.

The Montefalco has one of the most sophisticated restaurants and hotels know to prepare exceptional gourmet meals for elaborate wedding receptions.

The citadel is small but offers excellent shopping and restaurants and several superb villa hotels with parks and gardens are steps away. This is a perfect location for an intimate wedding allowing guests to step away from crowded tourist spots and enjoy authentic Umbrian countryside.

Hopping to towns such as Spoleto, Assisi and Spello is easily done in short day trip before or after your wedding in Montefalco.
