Stunning Tuscany Castle Wedding
Jun 2018 • Friends
Rumour has is that Castello di Vincigliata will no longer be hosting weddings from 2019, which is a shame as it was such a beautiful setting for our in June 2018. The venue management left a little to be desired (we waited weeks for responses to emails, and some key information regarding 'exclusive suppliers' was left out of the contract) however the day itself could not have run smoother thanks to a group of fantastic external suppliers: I Vecchi Amici (catering), Rada Zilja (flowers), Adrienne Aereboe (Hair and Makeup), Facibeni Fotografia (Photography). The venue and view over Florence is simply stunning and in our opinion worth the 4,500E (+22% VAT remember!) rental fee (dry hire) for the afternoon/evening on a Friday in June. If planning your wedding here, make sure you ask the questions about exclusive suppliers upfront - you will need to contact the Alma Project for all of the lights/sound (c. 8k for lights & PA system) and they will say you have a choice of 3 (expensive!) catering companies. However we discovered for a 600E + 22% VAT "kitchen" fee, they allowed us to choose our own caterers...which still worked out cheaper! In a nutshell: Beautiful venue, frustrating management - but overall a perfect setting to a memorable day.

Nieces wedding venue
Jul 2018
We were here on 21 st July for a wedding reception.
Roads up to it are very narrow and extremely steep , although my brother in law had laid on mini buses for the guest from the church, but don’t think I’d like to drive up there or worse down in the pitch dark.

The view is stunning ,lovely photo opportunity.
When it was time to eat we went into the castle walls (no roof) the way the room was set out it looked like something from a magazine, beautiful !
But so hot and uncomfortable, because it’s already hot the four walls surrounding you made it even hotter and with candles on every table even more heat , but it did look glorious.

Beautiful place for a wedding
May 2018 • Family
We attended our close friends wedding here and it was amazing. The roads are slightly challenging to get up but nothing too difficult and the castle views are breathtaking.

From the top of the castle you can see the whole of Florence. It was lovely.

An amazing wedding experience at the Castle!

If you have an opportunity to visit this place and make it through the challenging road to get to it, do it. The views are breathtaking, it overlooks Florence and is a beatiful setting. We attended a very elegant wedding and enjoyed the full experience.

Beautiful venue for weddings
Jun 2016 • Couples
I went to a wedding in the castle - Castello di Vincigliata. Amazing venue for an outdoor wedding. A bit pricey to get up here by taxi from Florence but the setting is amazing; the views over Florence are amazing.
If you want to have a dream wedding; with the right wedding planner you have a wonderful romantic venue.

Pure delight
Oct 2015 • Business
Castello di Vincigliata is perched above Firenze. It is a good idea to make a (long) walk to the castle (from Fiesole, and back, downhill), because it is very nice to. It is a fairytale castle, and if you are lucky enough to see its interior too, you will be delighted!

The most magical place ever!
Jun 2014 • Couples
We were married in Vincigliata last year and have to say it was utterly beautiful! The owner was lovely, nothing too much, our catering was spotless and our family and friends (45) filled the courtyard perfectly.

We had photos in the vineyards and orchards just outside.

If you want an intimate and romantic castle with fantastic views (and flaming torches!) then this is the one xx

A Castle With A View
May 2013 • Friends
If there was ever a castle that reminded you of a fairytale then this is it... This is such a romantic venue and would be heavenly as a location to celebrate a wedding or other important occasion. It's also perfect for enjoying the famously romantic countryside of Fiesole, made famous in the 80's film 'A Room With A View'.

There are many different options for outdoor refreshments and an indoor alternative. It's not so easy to walk around it if you are differently abled however. There are great walks nearby and an adventure playground for little (and not so little!) ones. All together a wonderful day out and a must visit if you are staying in Florence.

Amazing wedding venue
Jul 2012
We got married at Castelo Vincigliata last July and have to say the location was fantastic.
It is a beautiful castle overlooking vineyards with views of Florence in the distance.

Most of our 70+ guests commented that it was the best wedding they had been to.
Would highly recommend this beautiful venue.
