1 - Palazzo Giuliani in Arco
Palazzo Giuliani is the 15th-century residence of the Counts of Arco, located in the centre of the small Garda town, and now housing the municipal historical archive. Weddings and civil unions are celebrated on the first floor, in the stunning Santoni room, richly decorated with frescoes on all walls. The large terrace overlooking the square is what makes this location really special – it’s the ideal place to welcome your guests for refreshments, before or after the ceremony.
2 – Municipal Casino in Arco
A former meeting place and entertainment for Central European noble families, nowadays the Municipal Casino in Arco is used for conferences and events. The famous empress Elisabeth of Austria, better known as Sissi, stayed here in 1889. If you love Liberty style, stucco decorations and airy windows, you can decide to get married here. You can choose between different rooms, depending on the number of your guests. Would you like background music? Then we can help you find an orchestra to play in the delightful outdoor gazebo.
3 - Palazzo Martini in Riva del Garda
Palazzo Martini is one of the most fascinating historical residences in RIVA DEL GARDA. It was built in the 18th century by the Moscardini family, then passed on to the family whose name it now bears, and recently it was acquired by the municipal administration. It also contains a small sixty-seat theatre. Weddings are celebrated on the main floor, in rooms decorated with mythological frescoes. It’s a truly elegant setting for a ceremony reminiscent of the past. Or would rather get married in a fortress?

4 - Olivi Beach in Riva del Garda
In 1934, Giancarlo Maroni, famous for having planned the Vittoriale degli Italiani in Gardone, designed a modern bathhouse for Riva del Garda, a futuristic idea at the time. Directly overlooking the lake, Olivi Beach is a wonderful wedding venue, romantic and at the same time spectacular. If you choose to get married here, you will associate the scenic image of the lake to your love story forever.
5 - Forte Alto in Torbole
On December 21th, 1869, the Austro-Hungarian Ministry of War ordered the construction of a robust fortress to guard the southern borders of the empire. Since then, the Forte Alto in Torbole has stood at the entrance of the road that connects Alto Garda to Vallagarina. Now its function has changed and, if you want, you can rent out the spaces on the upper floor to celebrate your wedding. This is a place rich in history and beauty, witness of the past and symbol of hope for the future.So, does anything tickle your fancy?
