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.
