GETTING MARRIED AT MONTERIGGIONI
The municipality of Monteriggioni offers a wide array of venues and innovative solutions to celebrate your wedding: spaces in important historical buildings and gardens within the city walls.
You can choose between the setting of the Castle of Monteriggioni, “the Gate to the Middle Ages”, and the absolute uniqueness of the Ospitale of Abbadia Isola, a compelling stop for pilgrims and travellers on the Tuscan section of the Via Francigena.
Within the walls of the castle it is possible to celebrate a civil wedding in the Dante Alighieri room, recently restructured in a historical building. It has a capacity of about 40 seats and offers an intimate and cosy setting. The walls are covered in frescoes by the painter Tommaso Andreini picturing Dante Alighieri and other characters. After the ceremony the newlyweds have the chance to request the use of one of the gardens of the castle for a quick toast with the invitees.
Within the castle there are a few fascinating green corners to celebrate weddings:
The Garden D. Calosi piazzetta Fontebranda is a wide space (about 35 seats) next to the castle walls. At its feet the smaller Garden below the walls (25 seats), a beautiful corner for ceremonies with fewer attendees or for a toast with the guests.
The public garden in Via del Tricolore is the largest space for ceremonies with over 80 guests: a lawn surrounded by olive trees, with one section already equipped with tables and chairs.
In the splendid context of the ancient Monastery on the route of the Tuscan Via Francigena, the municipality of Monteriggioni has made available wonderful venues for intimate and precious ceremonies.
The Sala della Tinaia, situated on the groundfloor, has two big brick vats decorated with paintings, witnessing the agricultural use of these buildings in the past. It can host approx. 35 seated guests.
The Sala Sigerico is on the first floor of the complex and offers a nice view to the side of the church of the remains of the ancient cloister. It can host approx. 60 seated guests.
The largest room is the Sala Convegni, next to the previous one on the first floor which has a capacity of at least 80 seats.
