Civil Weddings in Cortona

Civil wedding in Cortona  

The book "Under the Tuscan Sun" brought to world's attention this enchanting and noble town founded by the Etruscans. Today Cortona maintains its untouched fashion and is the town we always recommend to those who envision a beautiful medieval setting for their civil wedding in an oasis of peace and tranquillity. Despite Cortona is a bit off of the beaten path, it can be easily reached by train and in the surrounding area there are a number of Tuscan Borgos and small farmhouses with accommodations on spot and banquet facilities. 

 

The town of Cortona offers a perfect setting for those who wish to have the whole event in the same place. We can organize your civil ceremony in the local town hall, followed by cocktails on main square and a wedding reception in one of the typical restaurants in town, everything walking distance including accommodation.

Cortona was one of the most evolved medieval city-states and during the years has changed very little in its urban aspect, a really precious jewel and a guaranteed success for a romantic destination wedding. A legend suggests that Ulysses was buried here! Of course this is just a legend but many other interesting stories tell us more about this beautiful town, choose this town for your wedding and you and your guests will have the chance to live an extraordinary experience.
