The breathtaking gardens
This Italian Riviera wedding venue has a monumental Italian garden, the only one in the entire Liguria region.
It develops in two levels connected by incredible pergolas, ancient trees, fountains and steps.
The ambiance it is the perfect set for unforgettable weddings.
I am still astonished by the great pictures realised thanks to Giacomo Terracciano wedding photographer at La Cervara in Portofino.

The catering service works on the premises in the kitchens of La Cervara to provide the best food and highest quality with an eye to tailor made and customisation according to individual preferences and tastes.

Furnishings and decorations recall the 7 centuries of artistic history of the venue. Beauty extends beyond the interior. Each room faces in fact magnificent views of the sea or the monumental garden.
