Villa Cimbrone: getting married in the pearl of the Amalfi Coast
A wedding on the Amalfi Coast is a suggestive idea, evoking a fairytale atmosphere. The Amalfi Coast has always been one of the couples’ favourite wedding venues: breath-taking views, and the possibility to choose among many possible scenic locations contribute to making it a sought-after site.
Villa Cimbrone lies on the tip of Ravello’s promontory, with a view over the Mediterranean Sea and the coast; it is one of the most prestigious wedding venues of the whole Amalfi Coast, whose origins date back to the 11th century. The history of the Villa is truly evocative, and it is related to different historical eras. The building itself lies on Roman ruins, whereas the construction of today’s villa dates back to the 12th century, and is only at the beginning of 1900 that, after being purchased by a noble British banker, it has been entirely renewed, and transformed into a jewel.
Today, Villa Cimbrone is one of the most prestigious and sought-after wedding locations of the centre-south Italy; celebrating their own marriage here is the dream of every couple looking for something memorable. The Villa has also been a romantic nest for the actress Greta Garbo, and hosted the 1-million-dollar wedding of the American surgeon Scott LaRoque and Alla Kosova. On that occasion, the guest of honour Andrea Bocelli arrived on a helicopter just to perform at the ceremony.
It is also thanks to these glamorous events that Villa Cimbrone is a renowned location for romantic occasions and honeymoons. Today the building hosts a private luxury hotel, while the magnificent gardens are open to the public as a historic site.
If Villa Cimbrone’s weddings have become the dream of many Italian and foreign couples, the whole Ravello has been nominated Unesco site in 1996 and its beauty is since then renowned all around the world. It has earned the fame of a magical place, surrounded by the unspoilt nature, and by a wonderful terrace offering the most suggestive view of the whole Amalfi Coast.
An elegant and refined location, framed into an enchanting village laying on a panoramic hill: these elements contribute to Villa Cimbrone’s charm, making it one of the finest and attractive wedding venue in the world.
