Vincigliata Castle near Florence

Aerial view of Vincigliata Castle in Tuscany  

Location

Between Florence and Fiesole, a few minutes from the centre of Florence, on top of a hill, in a secluded position because immersed in green woods with magnificent views over the city.

Venue description

The first time Vincigliata Castle was mentioned is in year 1031 in a contract registered in Florence archives. Its decline started in the 17th century but thanks to a long and complete restoration in neo-Gothic style started in the 19th century. The result can be currently admired and enjoyed only during private events, the castle not being open to the public.

The gardens located on a panoramic terrace welcome guests arriving through the entrance and are a perfect setting for a ceremony or welcome cocktail.

Dinners are organized on the gardens too but the inside courtyard and the arched Loggia area with the right lights at night creates a unique and romantic atmosphere for a sit down elegant dinner. Guests are allowed to stroll around the halls of the castle that boasts original drawing rooms with original furniture, frescoed halls and antique arms hall. 

Wedding ceremony

Catholic ceremonies can be celebrated at the lovely parish church a few minutes out of the castle built in Renaissance style. Quite intimate church that hosts also large groups.

Symbolic weddings can take place in the Castle Gardens on the terrace. Civil wedding ceremonies at Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.

Wedding banquets

Vincigliata Castle offers the right setting for an unforgettable Tuscan Wedding, where people can experience a medieval dream. The courtyard has room for 100/120 guests and the annexed Arched Loggia can be a good back up in case of bad weather conditions since it is separated by glass windows. Management is high standard and experienced plus their attention to every detail is a guarantee of success. We recommend torches all around the castle for a really amazing atmosphere at night. Large veranda available for larger groups in the backyard of the castle.
