Among the little villages we recommend for your wedding in Friuli surely Cividale stands out. This picturesque Lombard town was founded by Julius Caesar in 50BC and is rich in art and history other than being near the charming wine district area, not far from the Slovenian border.
Cividale is a little-known gem in the eastern foothills of Friuli. An absolutely delightful place to stroll around in, it is one of the best places in all Italy to see evidence of the Lombards, who ruled here from 568 to 737 AD. In the center of town, near the 14th century Devil's Bridge is the cathedral, a 15th century Venetian Gothic building that harbors a remarkable silver altarpiece.
Civil wedding ceremonies are performed in the elegant Sala del Consiglio of the medieval Town hall located right in front of the impressive Duomo in the center of the city, decorated with enchanting paintings and antique furniture, suitable to groups of max 90 guests.
Civil weddings in Cividale are performed by the local Mayor. The ceremony is conducted in Italian with an interpreter. Music, personal readings and vows are allowed to customize the ceremony.
All year round.
