A fusion of art, history and architecture, Emilia Romagna is perched directly above Tuscany and often immerses its visitors in luxury. With its collection of recently renovated venues, exquisite cuisine and diverse location, it’s no wonder that it’s becoming an increasingly popular destination wedding location for couples to tie the knot.

The inland offers an array of beautiful terracotta buildings, as well as vineyards and mountain ranges, with a carefully curated selection of wedding venues to suit every style of celebration. Some venues now have apartments and rooms for your guests to relax and unwind in, so that you can really make the most of your destination wedding in Italy. Here at Paolo Cicognani Weddings & Events, we have a handpicked collection for our couples to choose from, based on service, hospitality and the quality of the venue.

Of course, it goes without saying, Emilia Romagna is graced with sizzling sunshine for a huge part of the year. You can make of the weather and landscape with horseback riding and hiking, or perhaps by paying a visit to one of its many nature reserves. With mountains and sea, the views at Emilia Romagna will certainly stop you in your tracks.

If the views, art and architecture aren’t enough to entice you, rest assured the food and wine will be. Emilia Romagna is renowned for its cuisine and is fondly known as, ‘the food valley of Italy’. You may have heard of Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese, Parma Ham and Grana Padano Cheese – all of which are culinary treasures. So, if you’re self-confessed foodies and wine lovers, and want to spoil your friends and family with a delicious, memorable meal for your wedding reception, this is the place to be!
