Plan your wedding in Cortona, one of Tuscany’s prettiest medieval towns! Authentic, peaceful and non touristy, the town of Cortona is one of our favorite civil wedding destinations in Tuscany. All around you are rolling hills covered with vineyards and shimmery olive groves.
The civil ceremonies in Cortona are held in the magnificent 13th century Captain’s palace; Palazzo dei Capitani del Popolo, right on the central square, the Piazza della Republica with imposing crenellated tower. The wedding hall is reached via a flight of steps into the formal entrance. The palace and wedding hall are quite impressive; and is a favorite of the Distinctive Italy Weddings team. Ceremonies are celebrated in beautiful surroundings of ancient wooden beams, rich frescoes and a huge medieval stone fireplace. The overall atmosphere is one steeped in history and warmth. Couples have been marrying in this wedding hall for centuries!
