Province of Piacenza. Welcome to the Official Tourist Information SiteScudo Piacenza


Via Roma 84,
Near Piacenza lies a Castle dating back to the 8th century, where anyone can still breathe the atmosphere of a historical period full of charm and solemnity. And even more: you can hear the woods whispering and enjoy the beauty of Vezzeno Valley. For these and many more reasons, Gropparello Castle is the ideal venue to celebrate weddings. Mrs. Rita Gibelli, the castle owner, and her staff are well known for giving visitors a warm welcome, in order to guarantee the best offer for the most beautiful day of the bride and groom's lives. 
The castle has a large room with wooden beams lightly coloured with a pink shade; a Loggia revealing a breathtaking view of the castle towers through a large glass wall; a magic and magnificent garden overseeing the drawbridge; a natural oasis in the castle's own farm were rose bushes and olive trees still grow; and finally a wonderful pavillion with a beamed ceiling, projecting over the Valley below the fortress. All these areas are available for banquets and wedding feasts. The Castle owner also offers the possibility of organising a traditional party or a themed party (e.g. Medieval or Renaissance) where the staff is also dressed accordingly. Or maybe you prefer an original set up by taking advantage of the restaurant service with typical Medieval food tasting, or using an external catering service. Do you want more? Upon request, the Castle has rooms to stay overnight, and hosts can take part in a guided visit to the manor park. and the fortress itself. The number of hosts cannot exceed 150 and menus start from 60 Euro per person. Upon request, it is possible to book a musical ensemble for the ceremony, a set of decorations and - if needed - transport to the Castle. All menus, including traditional dishes, can be modified according to specific tastes or needs (e.g. vegetarian, vegan or coeliac).
