This is a very characteristic region, where each city has its own special identity and an extraordinary variety of natural, artistic, and traditional landscapes: from the Dolomite mountains, a UNESCO World heritage site, to the eastern shores of Lake Garda; from the Palladian Villas of Riviera del Brenta, where many Venetian aristocratic families built their beautiful villas between the16th and 18th centuries, to historic cities full of art and culture such Padua, Vicenza, Verona…
Among all the treasures of the Veneto region, I would like to highlight Verona, one of the main tourist destinations in northern Italy due to its artistic heritage, important annual fairs, shows, and operas, such as the lyrical season in the Arena, the ancient amphitheatre built by the Romans.
Why romantic? Verona is the town where William Shakespeare’s famous tragedy “Romeo and Juliet” was set, seen worldwide as a symbol of love.
You probably don’t know that you can also get married in La Casa di Giulietta (Juliet’s House), where eternal lovers profess their undying love to each other. Hundreds of visitors from all over the world come to this place to leave a tribute to their Love. (Photo of messages of love on Juliet’s House). I really think this is one of the most romantic places where you can promise and seal your love!
Venice is one of the most unique cities in the world: it is built on water, cars are not allowed in the city centre so you can only get around by water or foot. This probably seems very strange to you, but for us residents it is absolutely normal and our main mode of transportation is the boat. Of course, organising such an important event in such an “out of the ordinary” city requires attention to each and every detail. That’s why, I believe that a wedding in Venice should be planned by someone who lives there and has first-hand experience of all its special features.
I am really proud to be Venetian so my goal for all the couples who get married here is to see the city through the eyes of a local… I would really love to give you tips on all the customs for enjoying the city, as well as recommendations for restaurants, activities and everything you need to make your stay in Venice absolutely fantastic!
The typical location for a wedding reception in Venice is an ancient palazzo – Venice has almost 100 palazzos!!! Even better, if they face the Grand Canal. Some palazzos have beautiful gardens, with a view of the lagoon.
You can also have your wedding reception on a panoramic terrace overlooking the basin of San Marco or a luxury private island whose romantic view of Venice from across the water will amaze your guests.
