Your Sorrento wedding reception at this Exclusive Villa hotel will be the epitome of elegance. The views from the terraces over the Bay of Naples are stunning. Menus will be tailored to your preferences, the restaurant cuisine is outstanding.

One of Sorrento's most exclusive villa hotels offering incomparable views from its terraces overlooking the Gulf of Naples. The current villa is built on ancient foundations dating back to Roman times when the Emperor Augustus came to the region in exile. Its current design was created in 1750 for the Earls Mastrobuono. Royalty and famous names have stayed here from Eugenia, Empress of France to William Waldorf Astor.

The hotel's terraces are perfect for an elegant wedding reception in Sorrento. The Villa Pompeiana terrace is designed around a colonnade and is a perfect example of Pompeian style. It enjoys magnificent views over the blue waters of the Coast of Sorrento. We think it is one of the finest wedding reception locations along the Amalfi Coast. The hotel's two restaurants serve exquisite local Campania cuisine.

The suites are a dream...each completely unique and our favorite is the Suite Roccia,made out of an ancient Roman grotto which, is equipped with a huge jacuzzi.

Wedding Ceremony

Your Sorrento wedding ceremony can be celebrated in one of two civil wedding locations: The St. Francis Cloisters and the Villa Fondi park. Catholic weddings are not possible in Sorrento but could be celebrated in Positano. We can have a Protestant pastor celebrate a religious ceremony with civil validity either on the terrace or the gardens.

The feel is pure Mediterranean and the views are eye popping to say the least.

Dining on the terrace or in the indoor restaurant is a memorable experience; the cuisine is modern serving both traditional and international fare.

Each of the 12 bedrooms enjoys sea views. The rooms are designed with cutting edge features and fantastic bathrooms.

Civil Weddings in Sorrento

Get married in Sorrento, where Roman emperors came to spend their summer vacations and built magnificent seaside residences. Poets such as Goethe and Keats have praised the enchanting panoramas of this charming southern town and so will you. The gardens of Sorrento are one of the highlights of this beautiful resort town. Revel in the incredible views of the Bay of Naples as you stroll along the waterfront.  Sorrento is one of the most popular locations for a destination wedding in Italy.

Sorrento Ceremony Location Details
The Saint Francis Cloisters 
A civil wedding in Sorrento can be held on the grounds of a former 7th-century convent, in a mystical medieval cloister. Just a few steps away are the gardens of the Villa Comunale with its sweeping views. The setting is quite secluded and intimate, a wonderful place to celebrate your Sorrento wedding ceremony.  This is one of the most requested locations in the Amalfi Coast.

Villa Fondi in Piano di Sorrento
If a sea view civil wedding is your dream, then you will want to choose the elegant Neo-Classical Villa Fondi, approximately 5 minutes from the heart of Sorrento. The villa is a National Monument, surrounded by a magnificent park with lush vegetation, bright flowerbeds, and ancient trees. Very romantic! All around you are views of the sea and coastline. Should the weather turn inclement, your Sorrento civil ceremony will be moved indoors in an elegant hall with frescoes.

Both wedding halls allow for ceremonies to be personalized with music, poetry and readings. Please note that Villa Fondi is not an exclusive venue, it is a public park, so privacy cannot be guaranteed. The cloister wedding hall is completely private.

Best time for a Sorrento Civil Wedding
Sorrento enjoys one of the milder climates of the coast and is fine year-round but is at its best March through October.
