Two charming villages, San Gregorio da Sassola and Sambuci, located respectively 10km and 15km from the town of Tivoli are known thanks to their historic castles, which are the landmarks not only of these two villages, but of the entire region Latium.
San Gregorio da Sassola is located on a hillside. The medieval center of the village (borgo), with its castle has the origin in the middle of the 10th century. It was built as a defense of the first settlement. Its protective function was lost the value within centuries, and the castle became the residence of the rich people.
Tivoli is a small, but very beautiful town standing on the hillside 30 km from Rome.
The palace where civil weddings take place belongs to the Renaissance period. The civil wedding ceremony is held in the majestic Red hall decorated with frescoes and statues.
Tivoli is famous for its unique villas (Villa Adriana, Villa d'Este and Villa Gregoriana), by its fortress of the 15th century, by magnificent mansions and by virgin nature.
The Villa d'Este is considered the most beautiful villa not only in Tivoli, but in all region of Latium. Is was created in the period of the Renaissance by request of the cardinal Ippolito D'este. The villa complex includes the palace and adjoining it garden with 500 fountains! Just thank to the fountains the villa got its special glory. Its beauty inspired musicians and poets, architectors and artists. Peter the Great sought to surpass them at creation of his Peterhof. The Villa D'Este could become a venue of your wedding day, for symbolic ceremony or only for photo set.
