Protestant Wedding in Ravello

There is the possibility to perform two kinds of protestant ceremonies. The first is celebrated by an Italian Pastor that has the authority to perform legally binding ceremonies. The ceremony is co-officiated by an English-speaking interpreter.

The second is performed by an English-speaking pastor and the ceremony is religious only (not legally binding). Protestant wedding ceremonies in Ravello can be held in different amazing locations.


The catholic church of Santa Maria a Gradillo is the only church in town that allows protestant ceremonies. It is located in a secluded area withing walking distance from the central square and the gardens of Villa Rufolo. Its interior is simple and bright, formed by three naves. It can hold up to 100 people.
