Destination Weddings in Spoleto
Destination weddings in Spoleto are a favorite. Spoleto, in the region of Umbria, is a perfect place where to celebrate weddings in Italy when you want an ancient or medieval backdrop to your wedding ceremony or you would like to celebrate a theme or period wedding.
Spoleto is a medieval jewel, the former capital of the region. It was from here that the Lombard duchy ruled the area throughout the middle ages. A true citadel, Spoleto can only be explored on foot; the town climbs upwards and the walk is most rewarding. You will be entranced by the narrow cobbled streets which have maintained their original structure and atmosphere in spite of the many visitors that come each summer to celebrate the renown Festival dei Due Mondi. This is one of Italy’s most famous cultural festivals where great artists from all over the world celebrate music, dance and theatre. The Duomo (Cathedral) is a true sight to behold. This cathedral is very impressive and creates a very authentic medieval atmosphere and an unforgettable setting for a wedding.
Nearby is the official wedding hall in an elegant Palazzo situated on a quiet side street. Inside the Palazzo is decorated with beautiful frescoes and original 1400’s antiques. Sunlight pours in from the windows making this a very romantic location for your Italian wedding.
Nearby you can host your Italian wedding reception in elegant castles, palaces or upscale farmhouses feasting on the fine Umbrian wines and cuisine. Umbria’s cuisine is highly praised by all of Italy and many of the dishes have a historic tradition of over 600 years. Cooking classes in Umbria can be offered in conjunction with your wedding in Umbria.
Umbria is less traveled than its Northern cousin, Tuscany and you will find more privacy, better value for your money, and a warm welcome everywhere you go during your visit.
