Cortona is set on top of a hill from where you can admire the harmonious rolling hills of Valdichiana and the Lake Transimeno. Catholic ceremonies in the medieval town of Cortona are celebrated in two Churches. One is the romantic small Chapel of S. Niccolò of the 15th century, located a short walk from the center of town within the ancient walls, the other is the Renaissance Church of Santa Maria Nuova at a few minutes’ drive from the center, suitable to big groups of guests. Depending on the number of guests attending Bride and Groom can have an intimate ceremony with closer family and friends or a classic catholic ceremony in case of a destination wedding.
Upon your arrival at the Church of San Niccolò you see the slender columns of its enchanting small porch, the cypress tree lines that welcomes to this sacred church, while the interior is really refined and intimate, with precious paintings and marvelous wood-coffered ceiling. This church is suitable to max 20/25 people and can be easily reached on foot, this gives you the chance to enjoy a memorable, stress free wedding day, pacing around Cortona to reach the most treasured and undiscovered beauties.
The Church of Santa Maria Nuova is one of the most famous Churches in Tuscany. It is located just outside the walls of the town of Cortona and was built over the remains of an ancient Roman temple. It is a unique piece of Italian history with a square plan surmounted by a big dome that dominates the valley. This Church can hold approx. approx. 100 guests
The priest in Cortona welcomes couples in love from all over the world, allows Catholic ceremonies that are legally binding at the same time and an English speaking priest is available. Sacred music played by classical instruments is allowed, organist with flute, harpist and soprano or tenor are just some nice ideas.
