A destination wedding in Italy, a fairy tale in Umbria
This is the fairy tale of Laura and Moses, a life long dream, for a great destination wedding in Italy at the Borgia Castle, in Italy.
Borgia Castle is a perfect location for weddings or elopements. It is located in Umbria, a small region in central italy, so called the green heart of Italy.
This fairytale castle, once property of the notorius Borgia family, is exceptionally well situated at the border of Tuscany and Umbria on the shores of the Trasimeno lake near Passignano sul Trasimeno. Today, after centuries of history, the castle appears in its present form, imposing a stone made facade, the tower, renaissance arches, large fireplaces, lovely flooring of oak parquet and terracotta.
The Borgia Castle is situated in a fenced off park of 9 acres, with secular trees, flower beds and beautiful plants. From the swimming pool, which has been designed personally by the owner, there is a stunning view of the Trasimeno lake and the islands. Next to the swimming pool there is a tennis court. The castle’s interiors, decorated with splendid frescos, are very tastefully furnished with elegant and valuable pieces of furnitures.
There are 7 bedrooms so 13 people can sleep at the castle. This beautiful property has been used as the summer holiday residence of the owner’s family since the end of the last century. Only in 1993 its doors were opened to the public and rented out for vacation rentals and for weddings. In fact, the Borgia Castle is the ideal location for a relaxing holiday in Italy and the perfect spot from where you can visit the most beautiful cities and towns of the centre of Italy such as Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Todi, Spoleto, Cortona, Siena. Rome is just 2 hours by train and Florence 1 hour. This castle is also the perfect location for an unforgettable destination wedding in Italy.
This exclusive atmosphere represents a unique experience. It is hard to imagine that in this peacefull place Hannibal celebrated his great victory over Rome more than two thousand years ago.
So, what can you wish more, for your destination wedding in Italy?
Laura and Moses, from Seattle had a fantastic day, with their amazing families, enjoying an intense ceremony and a wonderful dinner, and good wine of the region.
