Civil Wedding Ceremonies in Verona or in Lake Garda

Civil ceremonies by law must take place in the hall of the historical cloister of S. Francesco al Corso ( property purchased by the local government only). The readings of the civil vows are conducted in Italian with translation and are about 30 minutes long.
After the reading, the rings are exchanged and then the witnesses sign the wedding act as do the bride and groom.

You could experience the unique opportunity to celebrate your wedding in one of the most romantic surroundings in Verona: in the hall of the historical cloister of S. Francesco al Corso, today a Museum of Frescoes, and where the famous sarcophagus of Juliet lies in the crypt. The tomb has become a symbol of eternal love. Maria Luisa of Austria, duchess of Parma, had a necklace made from fragments of the red marble of Juliet's tomb and Lord Byron also took some pieces to give to his daughter. Needless to say this romantic assignation could only be completed with a visit to Juliet's house, to exchange a kiss on the most famous balcony in the world. In this historical setting evoking myths and magic one can renew vows of love
