Wedding Venues on Capri

Religious Ceremonies

Couples can celebrate a Catholic wedding in Capri and Anacapri only if either the bride or the groom is a resident in the Archdiocese of Sorrento, unless the Bishop issues a special dispensation. In Capri, there is a small German Evangelist church, for couples wishing to celebrate a Protestant wedding.

Civil Ceremonies

In the town of Capri, couples can get married in a civil service in City Hall in the Piazzetta or at a number of scenic venues in and near Capri town. The city hall ceremony is free of charge during office hours, but there is a small fee for ceremonies held in other scenic venues.

Civil ceremonies in Capri can be held at the following venues:

  • Gardens of Augustus
  • Tragara scenic overlook
  • Punta Cannone scenic overlook
  • Villa Lysis (Fersen)
  • Charterhouse of San Giacomo (with authorization from the "Soprintendenza")

In the town of Anacapri, there are a number of breathtaking and scenic venues where civil ceremonies can be held, including:

  • The Lighthouse
  • La Migliera
  • Damecuta
  • Cetrella
  • The Orrico and Mesola Forts

There is a fee for using one of these venues to hold your wedding ceremony, otherwise couples can choose to get married inside the City Hall.

Symbolic Ceremonies

Symbolic wedding ceremonies can be held anywhere; on Capri, couples often opt for the Gardens of Augustus, on the scenic overlook facing the dramatic Faraglioni.

When is the Best Time of Year to Get Married on Capri?

The best time of year to hold a wedding on Capri is definitely between May and mid-September. We suggest avoiding the winter months, as rough seas can cause a number of logistical problems!
