....An authentic and spectacular old military fort, located in Portonovo (Ancona), has been transformed into a hotel with a very popular and acclaimed restaurant, where you can try sumptuous and delicious dishes.
This Napoleonic fort was erected in 1811 by order of Gen. De Beauharnais following a precise political and military strategy. Its purpose was to defend the southern flank of the city of Ancona and prevent the English enemy from using the trade routes in the Adriatic Sea by implementing a military blockade.
Today, it is a venue for elegant wedding ceremonies in both summer and winter. The beautiful landscape of Portonovo bay, together with excellent food, will ensure that your reception is a success and leave your guests happy and impressed.
The reception is held in 3 different areas of the Napoleonic Fort, including a terrace overlooking the sea and a garden terrace on the seafront.
It also has a very elegant hall, with windows overlooking the sea. The décor of all areas complements the atmosphere of the location, to fully enjoy its charm.
A network of professionals work in the Napoleonic Fort in order to offer additional services necessary for the success of the reception, such as florists, musicians, wedding planners, entertainers, etc..
The Napoleonic Fort restaurant specialises in seafood and recommends having a seafood menu for your wedding to meet the expectations of your guests. In the case of food allergies or intolerances, the restaurant staff are available to offer alternatives of the same quality and complexity of the seafood menu that is chosen. On request, we also suggest including a children’s menu to make everyone happy. Our sommeliers will choose the best local wines to accompany the wedding menu, whilst during the cocktail buffet we will provide a select choice of a few varieties of local wines.
The Napoleonic Fort offers a 15% discount on bookings made from Monday to Friday.
In addition, we offer an "all-inclusive" package if the wedding reception is booked from October to April. This package includes the printing of the menu, table decorations, live piano music and songs, SIAE fees and a traditional room for the wedding night.
The two offers cannot be combined.
