Ceremony Locations - Polpenazze

Polpenazze is a typical, small, Italian village in Val Tenesi but with its stunning hilltop views across the lake and nearby countryside it offers an wonderfully alternative venue to the castles and lakeside resorts. While only 5kms away from the shores of Lake Garda, Polpenazze is a long way from the well trodden tourist track around the lake.

The open air venue within the ruin of the old castle wall is a lovely quiet courtyard just away from the village centre. It offers a calmer, quieter atmosphere, perfect for those wanting a simpler wedding.

A wedding in Polpenazze also offers the opportunity for a different kind of reception such as a farm, winery or stables as well as very good quality restaurants. The area of Val Tenesi is well renowned locally for its food and it is also one of the largest wine producing areas in Italy.

Weddings in Polpenazze take place in 3 different venues:

1. The Castle Square – this small square is situated in an elevated position between the one remaining wall of the castle and the town library. Seating can be arranged for a maximum of 70 people all seated. From just to the side of the square and from the lower church square there are some of the best views of Lake Garda.

2. Biblioteca – this room situated directly above the town library can take a maximum of 40 people seated. Opening the shutters on the windows here reveals an uninterrupted view of the whole of the south of the lake.

3. Mayors Office – this small room can be used for very intimate weddings as it seats just a few people while a few more could also stand. Situated within the town hall itself it is suitable for only weddings with very few guests.


Polpenazze is situated on a hilltop above the western shores on Lake Garda, a 30 minute drive from the A4 motorway which conveniently leads directly to Bergamo and Verona airports in 50 minutes and the Milan airports (Linate and Malpensa) in 1h50mins. The airport at Montichiari (Verona/Brescia) is only 40 minutes from the resort. For more information go to Travel.

There are a few local B&B’s in and around Polpenazze but it is only a short distance (10mins) to the busier villages of Moniga & Manerba and so between all of them there is a wide range of accommodation on offer that can suit all tastes and budgets. For more information go to Accommodation.
