Castle by the Sea

Fairytale wedding in a romantic Italian castle by the sea – Friuli
Castles in Italy

FRIULI-VENEZIA GIULIA covers an enchanting area with many beautiful aspects waiting to be discovered. Crowned by the impressive Alps, it gradually descends to the charming Adriatic Sea.  In the midst, gentle green hills guard the secret of the vine.   The food is truly wonderful. Not prepared for endless visitors and tourists, but lovingly prepared for the local Italian society.  Fresh, local ingredients, turned into creative dishes, beautifully presented, and served at realistic prices.  This is the undiscovered jewel in Italy’s crown.

Nothing could be more like a fairytale than getting married in an actual castle, and Italian castles can provide the perfect setting for  your romantic Italian wedding.

Perhaps you like the greenery of vineyards and gentle rolling hills or perhaps, you love the sea !

Always a changing picture, delightful whether in the warmth of the Italian summer sun, sparkling and welcoming.  Sandy bays and views over to Croatia ( its fabulous beaches just an hour away ) and the harbour and port of Trieste. Just 10 minutes from Trieste airport ( serviced from the UK by RyanAir ) Colourful in autumn, and a cosy setting against a dramatic backdrop in the winter months.

This venue is unique.  A fortified home built for a Prince of the Austro-Hungarian empire, and the family still hold residence to this day. The castle is also a small museum and a little conference centre, but when you choose to marry here, the bedrooms ( with their amazing furnishings and views ) are all yours, and the area ( whether outdoors or indoors ) for your wedding is exclusive to you. Courtyards, landscaped gardens to the sea. and delightful interior rooms.

All highly affordable and the friendly staff are eager to negotiate superb wedding ceremonies and receptions.  The castle does have a few rooms including an amazing wedding chamber ( you would never forget ) which you may choose to use or you can simply have the wedding / reception here.  The wedding party could be accommodated, and/ or other friends and relatives could be accommodated in the little village under the castle walls in Bed and Breakfasts or if preferred in 4 or 5 star hotels in Trieste just 10 minutes away.  For sheer convenience to airports and accommodation, coupled with excellent value for money and just an amazing location, and unique arrangements through Creativity Travel – this one is difficult to beat !
