Couples who wish to get married in Certaldo will experience an authentic medieval atmosphere, since the Wedding Hall is located on top of the hill in the medieval walled old town. Certaldo is situated exactly in the middle between Florence and Siena at about 40 minutes from both cities.
Certaldo Alto can be reached on foot or by cable car, here you will also find accommodation and a nice restaurants for your Wedding reception. Every corner in Certaldo is unique and offers a wonderful spot for photos. The Palazzo Pretorio where weddings are celebrated is the highest building in town, a medieval building with a picturesque façade decorated with heraldic shields, a court, a chapel and even a prison since originally this was a Vicar's Castle.
Your Wedding photos can be taken on the lovely terraced garden and along the walkway overlooking the ancient town walls and with an amazing view over the green hills of the Val d'Elsa and over San Gimignano, being Certaldo only 10 km far from this spectacular towered town.
The ceremony takes place outdoors in the romantic courtyard of the Palazzo Pretorio. The backup option in case of bad weather conditions is a lovely hall that can hold max 30 guests therefore we recommend this venue to medium/small size weddings.
Weddings are allowed every day of the week morning and afternoon time. Sworn declaration to be done the day before the wedding. The Garden of the Palace or the Terrace at Palazzo Giannotti can be rented for a cocktail buffet.
We highly recommend a wedding in Certaldo for its secluded and intimate atmosphere, stunning views and charming setting.
