A Perfect Italian Beach Wedding Location

A Stunning Location for a Beach Wedding in Italy

Built on a promontory and dominating the entire bay and the Adriatic Coast, Gabicce Monte is one of the most amazing backdrops for a beach wedding in Italy.

Forming part of the unique little triangle known for good reasons as “The Riviera Romantica”, your wedding album here will contain truly spectacular photos with the views and sunsets remaining in your hearts forever.

This exciting new entry to our Italian Beach Weddings programme is truly unique and whist being extremely modern has a very old history attached to it having been the most up market place in Italy for many film stars and personalities in the days gone by.

It is situated in the small resort of Gabicce Monte which is a pretty little resort full of Italian charm and hospitality.

Built over 4 floors, the property boasts a bar and cigar room on the ground floor, a funky and trendy disco on the second floor, an exclusive restaurant on the third floor and the most amazing panoramic terrace on the top floor.

The views and the sunsets from the panoramic terrace are simply breathtaking and it is an ideal area for your cocktail reception after your ceremony ,sipping a glass of bubbly Prosecco as you greet your wedding guests.

In the 50’s this was the only dance club to be in the whole of Italy. Today in the same location, a more modern disco forms part of the property with Italy’s top DJs in abundance.



The restaurant has it's own in house chef who prepares dishes that look like works of art but it would be a pity just to look at them and not eat them.

This is one chef who is destined to go far and it will not be long before he gets his first Michelin star having worked in many of the most famous Michelin star restaurants in Italy.

We can cater for all sizes of wedding parties here.
For smaller groups we can still have an area dedicated and set aside just for you.
For larger groups, the property can be taken out on an exclusive basis.

However you decide, this is one place where a wedding by the sea is truly that.

It is a rare find and rivals anything you will find on the Amalfi coast but without the crowds.

Your civil wedding in this area can be celebrated in the elegant palace of Cattolica’s Town Hall which has amazing gardens and a square filled with sparkling dancing fountains.

Or if you prefer a more rustic and medieval hilltop village feel, then Gradara is another ideal choice with a legal outdoor ceremony performed in the cloisters of our unique convent villa.

For smaller groups we can also do a legal outdoor civil ceremony on the castle walls in Gradara overlooking lush green countryside on one side and the sparkling Adriatic sea on the other.

Religious ceremonies can take place in the delightful little church in Gabicce Monte , perched on the cliff overlooking the coast and just a stone’s throw away from this stunning reception venue.

We also have a romantic little church set in the walls of Gradara’s majestic castle.

Symbolic ceremonies can take place on one of the sandy beaches or even on the panoramic terrace of this reception venue with the blue sunny sky and the sparkling sea as your backdrop

English speaking celebrants are on hand to conduct all of our ceremonies be they civil, religious or symbolic.

We have a wide range of guest accommodation both in the resort itself and also in the many coastal resorts below. Something to suit all tastes and budgets ranging from small family run B&B’s to luxury boutique hotels.

You may even want to stay at The Hotel Luxor Beach which is owned by the same family as Dream Academy. Your Home from Home.


Very often it is difficult to find words to describe a venue and this is one of them All I can say is that we really love it here.

Let Dream Academy be your special partner for an Italian destination wedding by the sea.
