Weddings in Arezzo and Cortona

Towns dated back to the Etruscan and Roman periods, set of several movies such as 'Life is Beautiful' or 'Under the Tuscan Sun'


The charming town of Arezzo, some 43 miles southeast of Florence, is a lovely place to celebrate your Italian wedding.

The town is best known for the 14th century Basilica di San Francesco, whose chapel, the Cappella Bacci, holds a stunning fresco cycle painted by Piero della Francesca.

On a par with Michaelangelo's frescoes in Rome, these works have recently been restored to their full glory. The colors, detail and fascinating use of symmetry all enhance their splendor.

There is much more to discover in Arezzo. The town is known for its countless jewelers, goldsmiths and antiques showrooms, plus it also holds a regular antiques market. Some beautiful buildings face onto the imposing Piazza Grande, including traditional wooden balconied apartments, the 16th century Loggia di Vasari and the Palazzetto della Fraternità dei Laici, with its Gothic ground floor and 15th century upper stories.

Close by is the tranquil 12th century church Piere di Santa Maria. Arezzo's duomo overlooks the town, located at its highest point. Begun in the late 13th century, the building contains elements from many different eras.

Other features of Arezzo include a Roman amphitheater with a monastery built into the wall. The monastery contains the town's archaeological museum which displays Roman artifacts.

Meanwhile, the 15th century Palazzo Bruni-Cocchi houses the museum of medieval and modern art, with works from the 13th to the 18th centuries. This quiet and charming town is filled with romance and is a really picturesque place to get married. Your wedding in Arezzo is sure to be unforgettable.


An encounter with Cortona is an encounter with art, with history and with spirituality. Getting to know this timeless city is a real rediscovery of our past.

Cortona offers testimony to its history as well as an enchanting view of the landscape enclosed by Lake Trasimeno and the Appenines. Every year, extremely characteristic historical re-enactments are organized in Cortona, attracting a large number of visitors.

A wealth of beautiful countryside Villas and stunning locations are availble for your wedding celebrations, as well as the beautiful town hall in the historical centre for your civil wedding. The villas boast stunning lush gardens, wonderful options for an outdoor ceremony before sunset or an alfresco dinner.

Typically Italian and surrounded by stunning countryside, one of the most beautiful Tuscan locations, Cortona is a Lovely Wedding Destination, highly recommended!
