Cloisters of Saint Francis - Sorrento

The idyllic south-western Italian town of Sorrento is one of the most romantic places in the world to get married, so if you have been dreaming of getting married abroad, dream no more - we are here to make your dreams come true. We will help in any way possible with the planning and arrangements, and are happy to be able to offer you the opportunity to tie the knot in one of Sorrento’s most historic, and romantic venues.

The Cloisters of Saint Francis were built in the 14th century and stand next to the beautiful baroque St Francis Church. The shady cloisters provide atmospheric cover from the heat of the Mediterranean sun, while the gardens and courtyard are filled to the brim with beautiful bougainvillea and twisting vines, providing not only classically Italian scenery but also a stunning backdrop to your big day.

This is the ideal spot say ‘I do’, whether among friends and family, or between just you and your betrothed, but also for wedding photographs that will be truly unique; around every corner of this wonderful venue are perfect spots for photos that will provide memories of an unforgettable day.

We are here to help you make arrangements, whether it be flowers, a photographer or even a violinist to serenade you as you walk down the aisle.

From the Cloisters of St Francis, you and your guests can head towards the restaurant on the pier, where you will be able to indulge in the freshest seafood and  classic Italian and Neapolitan dishes, as the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea lap below you. With views of the Bay of Naples, the  town of Sorrento and Mount Vesuvius, you will never to forget this particular meal.
