Although Sardinia is somewhat less well known amongst foreign tourists, it is immensely popular with Italians. Offering a stunning coastline, delicious local cuisine and a laid-back atmosphere, Sardinia could be a great choice for you if you like the idea of a beach wedding, but would prefer to avoid the hustle and bustle of the Amalfi Coast

Located slap bang in the middle of the country, Umbria is often overlooked in favour of it’s more popular Tuscan neighbour. However, the region offers a lot of the same attractions (beautiful rolling hills, fascinating cities such as Perugia) for a fraction of the cost. 



 Basilicata remains one of Italy’s undiscovered gems, offering a rich history and gorgeous landscapes, it is criminally underrated as a wedding destination. However this may all be about to change with the appointment of Macerata, a truly unique city famous for its cave dwellings as European Capital of Culture. Given the likely explosion in popularity it may be a great idea to plan your wedding there now while costs and demand are still relatively low!
