You’ve looked at Tuscany, you’ve looked at Sicily, you’ve looked at Venice and you still can’t decide where to hold your destination wedding in Italy, can we suggest La Cervara on the Italian Riviera? This former bennedictine abbey – a National Monument of Italy – is located in Santa Margherita Ligure and is today an exclusive luxury wedding venue. Although the abbey doesn’t have accommodation, it is on the coastal road to Portofino, so there is plenty to choose from for you and your guests.

We can only describe La Cervara in two words: simply stunning. Whether you want an indoor affair or something al fresco there is no shortage of options: from the 15th-century frescoed galleries and 14th-century crypts and cloisters to the wisteria courtyard, and breathtaking terraces overlooking the Mediterrenean sea, La Cervara is a touch of coastal magic! This special, unusual and unique venue is the perfect option for couples who want to inject a touch of whimsical romance into their wedding on the Italian Riviera.
