Tie the knot in one of the most romantic spots in Italy; Cinque Terre seem to have been designed by a romantic painter!
Monterosso al Mare, Corrniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore and Vernazza, a string of five small, remote fishing villages suspended between sea and sky, clinging on to cliffs and surrounded by green hills with the famous vineyards and luxuriant pine-trees woods.
The scent, the flavour and the colours of the little villages overlooking the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, should be discovered and tasted slowly, like a very special glass of wine.
They were built in the rocks by ancient inhabitantst about a thousand years ago to defend themselves from barbaric and Saracen invasions. These ancient people found refuge between the sea and the mountains completely isolating themselves from the rest of the world, living on agriculture and fishing.
|Until recently, these towns were accessible by sea or by a footpath hugging the shoulder of the rugged terrain past terraced vineyards and gardens. Thanks to this age-long isolation we can today enjoy the preserved beauty and charme of a virgin landscape. Although each village of the Cinque Terre is now reachable via narrow and winding roads, the ideal means to reach the Cinque Terre are the train or better, the boats. Can you imagine a romantic boat ride along this breathtaking rocky coast where cliffs drop down into the sea. And few steps after the mooring you are in the bright atmosphere of the vibrant square ready to start one of the most gaily-coloured photography service.
You will be enchanted by these natural villages where there are no luxury hotels, no cars, but the sound of the sea, enchanting small beaches between cliffs, breathtaking views and houses piled up in a multi-coloured mosaic overlooking the sea!
|If you are planning a wedding in Italy and you like the sea, the sun, the silence of a world outside time you will be captured by a Cinque Terre Wedding, where the smell of the sea rising up the steep cliffs, the aroma of herbs growing wild and the scent of flowers ornamenting the narrow shelves will make your wedding unforgettable. And when it is time for your reception, the fragrance of the typical Pesto sauce, fried fish and anchovies, vegetable casseroles and fish with aromatic fillings entice you on a terrace overlooking the beautiful seascape of the famous Gulf of Levanto, La Spezia and Portovenere.|
