Situated in Tivoli, surrounded by a magnificent and utterly beautiful environmental and architectural landscape, Villa d’Este, Villa Adriana and the Sanctuary of Hercules Victor become unique backdrops for the wedding of your dreams.

In January 2019, following numerous requests, Istituto Villa Adriana e Villa d’EsteVillae entered into an agreement with the Municipal Administration allowing Civil marriage ceremonies to be celebrated in the two UNESCO heritage sites and the monumental complex known as the Sanctuary of Hercules Victor.

Celebration of marriage and creation of a civil union are among the ultimate expressions of the relationship between institutions and citizens, and Villae intends to enhance these events to an even further extent by offering locations able to provide outstanding settings.

Andrea Bruciati, the Director of Villae, suggests evocative and exclusive surroundings where couples can exchange their wedding vows, namely: the Gran Loggia and the Private Chapel of the Cardinal in Villa d’Este, the Pecile of Villa Adriana, the Triportico and the Great Hall of the Sanctuary of Hercules Victor.

As the Director points out, “The citizen becomes the patron of something that is part of his heritage and contributes towards protecting the monuments, which are an integral part of his person,” adding: “This is why the couples are informed of how important their contribution is and for which intervention it will be used to achieve improved and broadened fruition.”
