Weddings in Tuscany Castle Il Palagio

Aerial view of Castello Il Palagio, Tuscany  

Venue Location

Large estate, located in the Tuscan countryside, just 30 minutes’ drive from Florence, surrounded by wide vineyards extensions and olive trees all over the green hills.

Venue Description

The castle is the perfect setting for cocktails, aperitifs, symbolic ceremonies and photo sessions for the number of areas available outdoors and indoors. It takes just a short walk to the end of the back lawn, behind the iron gate and you will find yourself immersed in a forest of olive trees, just amazing! What a picture to remember and print in your mind!


This castle, built in the 13th century and restored in the 19th century, is an ideal location for a romantic wedding in a soft enchanting atmosphere. The internal court adorned with soft lights and the tables decorated with flowers and chandeliers, will render your wedding reception a really elegant and stylish event, inspiring to all your guests, breathtaking emotions.

Wedding Ceremonies

Catholic ceremonies can be celebrated in the Catholic church at 1 kilometer from the Castle. Symbolic and Protestant ceremonies instead can be celebrated on the grounds of the castle or in its small chapel, very quaint.

Wedding Receptions

On arrival guests will be directed to the fountain garden, a really relaxing setting for the aperitifs. The enchanting medieval court is a favorite location for wedding receptions. There is also a beautiful Gazebo for after dinner parties. The castle is suitable for having music played till late, as there are no neighbors around the area.

Wedding banquets are provided by one of the excellent caterers we work with that can provide the very best food choices, impeccable presentation and tastes that you will love.


It is also possible to have a dinner organized in Renaissance style, with waiters dressed with original costumes, serving dishes of the Renaissance cuisine, with music played by minstrels and magicians and jugglers delighting the guest's evening with their show. Your wedding day will be remembered by your guests for a lifetime!


Accommodations are not available at the castle. Farmhouses are available at a few kilometer’s distance for large groups that can stay all together in private houses.


Open all year, we recommend bookings from April till the end of October.
