Wedding in Tuscany


Volterra, the city of alabaster


If you want to get married in a lovely city not far from Florence, Siena and the seaside, without giving up on your addiction for the Medieval art, Volterra is the right choice for you.

Stroll around the downtown alleys and get carried away by the timeless magic which surround the entire town; try the typical products and poke around the botteghe, where you could find the perfect and unique gift for you and your friends, made of alabaster, the precious and iconic rock of Volterra. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings from the two city walls, one from 1200's and one more ancient from the Etruscan period.

One of the most beautiful places in the town is Piazza dei Priori, the centre of the Medieval area, surrounded by splendid palaces, as Palazzo dei Priori, the oldest town hall in Tuscany. The palace is embellished by a gorgeous Tower, where you can have one of the most beautiful views of Volterra and Val di Cecina. Here you can have your Civil Ceremony, in the Sala del Maggior Consiglio, which can host up to 90 guests.

Volterra is rich of amazing churches for your Catholic Ceremony, starting from the Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta, built in the early 1000's with a superb Romanesque façade, while on the inside you'll be amazed by the stunning nave with 22 columns decorated with stucco simulating rose-colored granite. 
If you want to get married in a country church, you shall consider the ones in the nearby countryside, that boasts incredible views of olive groves, vineyards and sunflower fields. 

Otherwise you can consider other fascinating churches as the one of San Francesco, San Michele or Sant'Agostino. 

If you get married in Volterra, you can even ask for the performance of the Historic Group of the town, which could greet the couple and the guests with flag-waving and drum roll.

Volterra is full of ideas for your wedding photographs: the Sala Comunale, the Romanic churches, Piazza dei Priori, Piazza del Duomo, the historical streets housed within the beautiful city walls as Via Ricciarelli or Porta all'Arco and Porta Diana, the Romanesque Theatre and the wonderful Palazzo Ricciarelli dello Sbarba, ideal for your wedding reception.
These are privileged spaces, unique frames to capture the beauty of these unrepeatable and magic moments as the ones of your wedding day.
