There are three locations for a Civil Wedding in Rome: the Sala Rossa at the Campidoglio, The Complesso Vignola Mattei at the Terme di Caracalla and the pretty Villa Lais. All of them are unique and historical. The ceremony lasts about 15 minutes and is conducted by the Major or, most of the time, by a substitute. It includes the reading of the civil wedding articles and, if you wish, you can customize it with music, vows or readings. Generally the venues need to be booked six months prior to your desired date.
