Getting Married in Siena
Siena is one of the most fascinating and beautiful towns in Tuscany, preserving its Medieval character and atmosphere within its ancient walls and maze of cobblestone streets. The city boasts beautiful Gothic buildings, including the famous Cathedral and Palazzo Pubblico, or Town Hall, where Legal Civil Ceremonies take place, as well as numerous churches
For couples planning a Legal Civil Ceremony, the Town Hall, Palazzo Pubblico, overlooks Piazza del Campo, one of the most remarkable squares in Italy. Well known throughout the world not only for its architectural beauty, the square is also famous for the Palio horse race, perhaps the most spectacular annual festival in Italy, taking place every summer. Legal Civil Ceremonies are celebrated in the historic Wedding Hall, Sala del Concistoro, next to the Civic Museum where couples can admire one of the finest art collections in Tuscany, as well as the magnificent halls filled with Renaissance frescoes, famous sculptures and paintings. After the ceremony, the Piazza del Campo is perfect for spectacular wedding photos.
If you are planning a Catholic ceremony, there are lots of stunning, historical churches inside the walled town, as well as gorgeous abbeys and chapels in the surrounding areas to choose from. You can enjoy an extensive and varied panorama including southern Tuscany with its olive groves and vineyards in the hills of Chianti. Siena is also the ideal setting for the most romantic Protestant Wedding Ceremony, either legally binding or without legal effects.
Siena is so beautiful that it has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Its warm and welcoming atmosphere makes it the perfect location for a wedding. Siena’s unique position in the heart of Tuscany makes it an ideal base to visit beautiful nearby towns like Pienza, Montalcino, Asciano, Montepulciano and those in Chianti, all easily reachable for half-day tours.
