Wedding in the Italian Riviera

Weddings in Santa Margherita Ligure

A fine place to celebrate under the sun and with relaxation.

Santa Margherita Ligure is a great location for a Wedding in Liguria. It is a fair-sized town, large enough not to seem smothered by the tourism which has been an integral part of the town's existence for decades.

The harbour mainly caters for smart yachts, but the town is also home to a small fishing fleet which can be seen unloading opposite the business-like morning fishmarket. There are wide ranges of hotels and restaurants, and a selection of great day trips to enjoy if you get tired of pottering along the laidback seafront.

Bars, cafes, gelato shops and restaurants are spread along the seafront and there are also a few along the main quay. The low hill dominating the waterfront is an interesting place to explore.

Behind the small Castello and the severely striped Chiesa dei Frati Cappuccini are intriguing overgrown passageways prowled by semi-wild cats. Further up the slope is the fancier church of San Giacomo in Corte, which contains among other sights a creepily-illuminated Madonna in a rocky niche.

Next door, the grand Villa Durazzo is a monument to the faded glory of the Riviera - where it could be also possible to celebrate Civil Weddings. The garden terraces are a public park, a pleasant place to sit. There is also a 'Coffee House' and although the Villa is used as a study centre, you can catch glimpses of frescoed interiors.

Get Married in Santa Margherita Ligure and enjoy the beauty of 'Cinque Terre'.
