There is a romantic song, called “Caruso”, very famous in Italy and written here in Sorrento, which is a real hymn to love. This city is truly elegant, its centre full of boutiques, souvenirs shops and historical hotels which have welcomed monarchs, diplomats and famous actors. The city’s green parks frame its natural beauty and the authentic Mediterranean cuisine is always awaiting to be enjoyed in an infinite choice of traditional local restaurants. Sorrento rises atop a steep cliff reaching into the sea and facing the majestic volcanic Vesuvius mountain, whose impressive outline is visible all year around.
Visitors adore coming to Sorrento not only for its pictureque seaside but for its unmistakable atmosphere created by the mixture of myth and history, culture and elegance, as well as an unparalleled hospitality, all of which make Sorrento a truly delightful place. In fact weddings in Sorrento are celebrated in a cozy cloister of a former monastery, where monks spent most of their time in deep meditation and prayer. The sunlight falls softly from above, illuminating the central part of the cloister where, under a secular willow tree, there is a table for the wedding ceremony. The cloister is square-shaped and in each side there is an arched corridor, lending itself to the capturing of splendid wedding pictures, worthy of being part of a movie taking place in the Middle Ages. Just outside the cloister is a beautiful panoramic garden perfect for you and your guests to take in the awe-inspiring coastaline and view of Vesuvius.
The cloister has a great volume of requests for weddings in Sorrento, which is why the municipality created a great alternative: a beautiful Villa, also featuring a lovely park and an astonishing view over the sea. This villa offers, at an additional cost, use of its banquet area for a lunch or dinner receptions or an exclusive aperitif. The wedding ceremonies are celebrated outdoors in front of the villa. In this beautiful villa you may organize official or symbolic ceremonies in Sorrento. The unforgettable wedding photo shoot, starting in the villa in front of the fantastic panorama of the Bay of Naples, will continue around the quaint town, guaranteeing the most beautiful memories of your wedding in Sorrento.
