Legal civil wedding ceremony in villas are now allowed in Verona as well in the Valpolicella wine region
Lots of couples are asking for the legal civil wedding to be held in a private villa, like it is often the case in the US or in South Africa. Due to the Italian law, the civil weddings are only legal when celebrated in the respective townhall or in the defined building belonging to the municipality.
Now Verona offers the legal wedding in some special places as well private villas. For example the Cappella dei notai in Verona or an aristrocatic villa near the old castle of Verona.
2 other small towns in the wine region of Valpolicella, near Verona, did open their rules and it is now possible to get wed in several villas with huge parcs surrounding them for photos.
Of course the prices are a bit higher then getting wed in the normal townhall, the registrar or mayor needs to come out to these places. But compared with some other wellknown cities in Italy it is still quite fair with Euro 600, 800, 1.000 for the weekends.
