Why to choose a wedding in Assisi
Assisi is a small town full of great places where to get married with Catholic and civil ceremonies. Civil ceremonies can be held in the Town Hall, the “Palazzo dei Priori”. It is the symbol of the city, whose construction began in 1275. During the XV century many restorations were carried out; this is why the facade is decorated with a lot of crests dated 1400.
Assisi offers a wide range of stunning churches all fascinating and with great spirituality: the city of St. Francis. In every corner there is a church, each one with its own charm and its uniqueness. Catholic ceremonies can be celebrated even in the famous Basilica di St. Francis.
If there is a perfect Umbrian town, then Assisi definitely is definitely the winner. Rising on the slopes of Monte Subasio, Assisi enjoys spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding valleys and is comprised of lovely medieval houses made of the local pink stone. The overall effect for the visitor as they approach is spectacular when bathed in the light of a sunset, the pink is intensified creating a unique effect. Assisi is the town of Saint Francis and couples wanting to hold a catholic ceremony in Assisi have a superb selection of churches and chapels from which to choose.

The Council Hall was decorated by architect and painter Charles Gino Venanzi, who is the project of wooden furniture and the frescoes on the ceiling.
The pavilion vault shows allegorical figures of the School of Charity, Labour and Hygiene, praising the time of Concorde Justice and Freedom.
The eighteen lunettes are decorated with medallions bearing the crest of Assisi and portraits of famous people, each identified by a scroll. In the spandrels are the arms of the major cities of Umbria.
Both Halls are in Palazzo dei Priori on the main square so at the end of your wedding ceremony you can walk hand in hand in the historical centre taking lovely pictures.
