Destination Weddings in Emilia-Romagna

From Ravenna to Faenza and Bologna, Emilia-Romagna is a region where couples can marry in magnificent Palaces or Villas enjoying some of Italy‘s most charming cities. Our favorites are Ravenna and Ferrara, two undiscovered and absolutely breathtaking wedding destinations we highly recommend.

Emilia-Romagna is a prosperous region in northern Italy, whose varied landscape, coastline and lovely towns and cities make it a popular destination ideal for a romantic Italian wedding.

The south of the region is where you will find the capital of Emilia-Romagna, Bologna, and the atmospheric towns of Modena and Parma, which are worth visiting for their architecture alone. Also in the south are the picturesque Apennine mountains, whose foothills are ideal for gentle hikes or simply for taking in the breathtaking view.

Bologna is a wealthy and welcoming city which offers the best of Italy – wonderful restaurants and cafés, stunning churches, palaces and museums, plus an enormous amount of Italian culture to discover. The city has many theaters and art galleries, plus a well known summer festival.

The landscape of the north contrasts with the mountainous south, as it is mostly flat plain and lagoons, interspersed with historic towns and villages. One such town, Ferrara, was highly important in Renaissance times, and retains many structures from that period. It is located just half an hour north of Bologna.

Nearby, Ravenna is best known for its stunning Byzantine mosaics, which many believe to be the best in the world. Found in the town’s churches and mausoleums, they are an incredible sight. The seaside town of Rimini is also popular for its well preserved Medieval center.

Emilia Romagna is renowned for its delicious cuisine, Renaissance castles and fortresses and varied cultural festivals that take place throughout the year. It is a many-faceted region with a huge amount to offer and is highly recommended for a romantic wedding in Italy.
