A special attention is deserved by Cinque Terre. Cinque Terre are five tiny towns, settled down in cozy bays on the rocky coast: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia , Vernazza and Monterosso. All of them are part of the National park and are under protection of UNESCO.

It is possible to organize a civil wedding ceremony in Riomaggiore, Monterosso and Vernazza.

All towns of Cinque Terre are the perfect place for wedding on the sea, if you are looking for a place with an amazing atmosphere of tranquility and perfect harmony of water, land and sky. 


Riomaggiore is the most southerly town of the Cinque Terre. Old and quiet, with many picturesque houses, towers, parallel placed along the narrow streets. In the lower part of the town is located the cove with a cozy beach.

Wedding ceremony in Riomaggiore is carried out in the hall of the municipality or in the castle, which is located in the highest part of town.


Vernazza is probably the most characteristic of the Cinque Terre and it is classified as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Vernazza is well-known not only for the beautiful landscapes and also for architectural values. The Church of Santa Margherita di Antiochia, built on the rocks overlooking the sea and the Tower of the Doria Castle, built in the 15th century to protect the village from pirates, is located above the bay and the small port of Vernazza.

The City Hall of Vernazza provides civil wedding ceremony in the Municipal Hall which has a small playground with a fascinating view of the entire Vernazza and the Ligurian sea.


Monterosso is the largest of the five coastal towns collectively known as the Cinque Terre.

The historical center of Monterosso is dominated by the ruins of the castle and characterized by typical narrow medieval streets with multi-coloured terraced houses. The beach is the only extensive sand beach in the Cinque Terre and runs along most of the coast line. The symbol of Monterosso has become the statue of giant that represents Neptune and its weight is more than 1700 tons.

Civil wedding in Monterosso takes place in the Municipal Hall, looking so far where the azure sea meets the blue sky.


Manarola is the most ancient of five towns. Its characteristic feature is the tower-houses with narrow streets taking to the azure sea. Here, in Manarola, the Path of Love (Via dell'Amore) starts. It is a footpath leading to the nearby town of Riomaggiore. The walk on the Path of Love will provide an opportunity to capture the landscapes and views of amazing beauty. 


Corniglia is a central town, the smallest and the highest of the Cinque Terre. It lays on a small cape, 100 meters above the sea. It is the only town without access from the sea. Corniglia is an ancient Roman village that has a long and rich agricultural tradition. The village is surrounded on three sides by vineyards and terraces. Its architecture is closer to that of a rural inland village than that of a coastal village.

After ceremony the newlyweds can walk, accepting congratulations from local residents, or take a ride on a boat, admiring the picturesque towns on the sea side.
