The Cloisters of San Francesco
The Cloisters is part of a medieval monastery dating back to the 14th century and offers a truly magical setting with its arches and pillars surrounded by flowers, vines and ornamental trees. You can personalise your ceremony with your own reading(s) and musicians such as a harpist or a traditional Italian guitar and mandolin duo. The open–air courtyard offers amazing acoustics with the venue often hosting classical music events. Following the ceremony you have the opportunity to have your wedding photographs taken in the gardens behind, with the most spectacular backdrop of the Sorrentine peninsula. A photographer’s dream!
