Castello di Vincigliata is a fabulous wedding castle in the Tuscan hills of Fiesole overlooking Florence which originally dates back to approx 1000 AD! However it has been in its current renovated state for about 150 years and is used only as an event venue.
It has a beautiful walled courtyard which can seat up to 120, a formal garden, a large terrace where dancing and drinks receptions are held and a permanent covered marquess style structure which can seat 300 guests.
There are also rooms within the castle which are smaller and suitable for smaller group indoor wedding receptions. There are a variety of outdoor areas where you can have a symbolic ceremony and at night the walls of the castles are illuminated by flamed torches adding to the fairytale affect!
.Things to Note:
Suitable for weddings from 40 – 300 but outdoor dining in the courtyard is suitable for up to 120 guests.
No accommodation or catering on site. Guests can stay in Fiesole or Florence but they need to be transferred by private transfer. Only cars and up to 205 seater buses can traverse the winding roads to the castle.
One wedding per day and exclusive hire is possible from 5.30pm to 3.30am
