Italy has always been one of the top picks for a destination wedding venue.
Not surprising at all because when a couple thinks of a destination spot, they imagine Italy’s mountainous landscape, its fresh Mediterranean climate, the country’s historic buildings, and its rich flora and fauna that complete the elements of a picturesque wedding.
However, you can’t just pick the first venue available or the cheapest events place you see on the internet when you decide to get married in Italy. You can’t even rely on photos, descriptions, or reviews that you read because they won’t show you the whole picture of what these venues offer.

Where to Say your “I Do” Here
Some of the additional memorable elements inside Château Monfort are wide marble staircases and brick ceilings that exude a truly classy ambiance.
To perfect a truly classy ambiance, the staircases and ceilings were textured with ceramic and bricks. Weddings here usually take place at the Hall of Enchantment that’s perfect for a fairytale occasion. It is a 118-square meters hall with lavish travertine floors and intricate floral patterns embedded on the wall, reaching up to the ceiling.
If you imagine a whimsical outdoor elopement ceremony in a garden, there is a special area around Château Monfort’s glass dome that could be a perfect spot for your elopement or intimate wedding. It can accommodate 20-25 people.
Wedding Reception Spots
The Lounge Bar Mezzanotte of the hotel is ideal for wedding receptions. It’s designed with a spacious elevated area in front that can be your stage where you and your spouse can sit in the middle while the musicians can stay on the side. On top of this unique venue for small weddings in Italy is a dome-shaped structure covered in glass. It’s a great architectural element of Chateau Monfort since it allows all the light in during daytime. At night, it lends a view to the starry sky of Italy, making your wedding even more magical.
If you’re having a n elopement with zero to twenty guests, you can hold the festivities at the Rubacuori by Venissa restaurant. This is a much smaller and more intimate area of the venue that is divided into three rooms. All of which have pastel-colored wallpapers, classy furniture, and intricate chandeliers. To give you an idea, picture a room with the finest Italian wines displayed in a century-old cabinet.
