Destination Weddings in Portovenere

Charming Portovenere is a quintessential Ligurian fishing village with its pastel colored houses climbing against the rocks and cliffs and surrounded by incredible blue waters. Exploring the town's narrow alleys with their tiny shops is one of the delights of this town. Strolling along the pedestrian promenade you will reach one of the most dramatic vistas of the Italian Riviera: the Gothic church of San Pietro, dating back to the 13th century constructed on a massive rock. Its black and white exterior makes it a landmark from land or sea. 

Civil weddings in Portovenere are celebrated at the top of the town among the ruins of an ancient castle. The setting is worth the steep climb and many steps! The ceremony is held outdoors, weather permitting, enjoying incomparable vistas. Several excellent restaurants are available for your wedding reception with views of the Portovenere Bay and surrounding coastline.
