“He who has not seen Rome believes in nothing” – Italian Proverb
Those who have never been to Rome cannot fully understand how beautiful the city is. Rome is the cradle of history, of traditions, art, food, and culture, thanks to which it is rightly considered to be one of the most impressive capitals in the world. So, what better location exists than this culturally rich city to celebrate your wedding? Especially when there are such incredible locations at your disposal like Villa Aurelia, which overlooks the city from the top of Janiculum Hill. Owned by the American Academy in Rome since 1909, Villa Aurelia opened after years of careful and meticulous restoration thanks to which all the rooms were recovered and some important historical elements were brought to light, such as heraldic decorations, frescoes dating back to the 17th century and a section of the Aurelian Walls.
Exchanging Vows on the Roof of The Eternal City
Today, Villa Aurelia is a dream that can become your reality. It is an ideal venue for large wedding celebrations to be held in the spacious indoor halls and in the beautiful gardens. To guarantee that the bride and groom receive extra special service, the villa is booked exclusively for their wedding. Additionally, the couple can contact their preferred suppliers for services such as catering and floral design without any restrictions, so that they can design their big day as they wish, freely using the spaces of the Villa, both indoor and outdoor, to set up the different stages of the wedding.
The interior of Villa Aurelia is characterised by richly decorated halls, starting from the floors to the coffered ceilings finely embellished with stuccoes and pilasters, with antique furniture and crystal chandeliers. These are classic rooms with antique charm, but they are perfectly adaptable to any type of arrangement and customisation, if so desired by the couple. Another option is setting up a romantic reception in the lush grounds of the Villa with a warm ambience which will invite your loved ones to get lost in the wonders of the estate.
