Best time to marry in Pisa: all year round
A wedding in Pisa, Tuscany offers one of the most varied settings in the region: countryside, the ocean, castles, beaches and historic towns and cities.
Pisa's location close to the Ligurian Sea is one of the main reasons for Pisa's rise to power in the Middle Ages along with other maritime republics such as Amalfi, Genova and Venice. Eventually, during the 15th century, Pisa came under the domination of its larger rival: Florence. There is a rich history of Romanesque and Renaissance art and architecture throughout the city which is easily explored on foot. Best of all, Pisa is only 52 miles (84km) from Florence. The Leaning Tower and the spectacular Cathedral (Duomo) with its horizontal marble-stripe design are from the Romanesque period. The Piazza dei Cavalieri displays a very fine collection of palaces: the Palazzo dei Cavalieri and Palazzo dell'Orologio and the church of Santo Stefano dei Cavalieri which was designed by the famous Renaissance architect Giorgio Vasari in 1560.
Civil weddings in Pisa can take place in five historic venues. The Gambacorti Palace offers 3 different historical halls, one of which is quite spectacularly grand. Then there is the Abbazia di San Zeno - a former abbey with outstanding architecture and magnificent interiors. The Abbey is no longer consecrated but allows your civil wedding in Italy to have the ambiance of a church. Finally you can be married in the Giardino Scotto which celebrates your Pisa wedding outdoors!
