Your glamorous wedding on Lake Como
Glamorous, elegant, sometimes mysterious: Lake Como is one of the most fascinating Italian locations, loved by celebrities and setting to many Hollywood films, without ever losing its exclusivity and the confidentiality that sets it apart. The Lario (did you know that this is the other name of Lake Como?), described in Alessandro Manzoni masterpiece “The Betrothed”, is the third largest Italian lake. Famous throughout the world for its romantic and fairy tale landscapes and for its mild climate until late autumn, Lake Como is certainly the ideal setting for a romantic and stylish wedding in Italy. Another aspect not to be underestimated for a Lake Como wedding is its proximity to Milan: the Lake is in fact about an hour's drive from the city, ensuring ease of travel for your international guests.
The magic of the villages on the lake
Nature and refinement are the leitmotifs of this Italian jewel, overlooked by picturesque villages with splendid villas and gardens, a marvel born from the perfect fusion of nature and the hand of man. These villas, traditionally holiday destination of the Lombard bourgeoisie, are available to receive your guests in a fabulous setting. Among the most famous villages overlooking the Lario there are the lively and glamorous Cernobbio with its famous Villa d'Este and Bellagio, the "Pearl of Lake Como", which rises right on the promontory that separates the two branches of the lake, with the lakeside bordered by refined hotels, restaurant and villas (such as Villa Melzi d’Eril or Villa Serbelloni) and the lovely village with its narrow cobblestone streets and local craft shops. But there are also Brunate with its breathtaking views, Laglio, for a long time George Clooney’s "buen retiro", Varenna with its "walk of love" that leads to the pier and the amazing Villa Monastero, the picturesque Bellano with the suggestive "Orrido" - an ancient gorge carved over the centuries by the Pioverna stream, with walkways that allow you to walk suspended between water and mountains -, and Colico, the perfect destination for water sports enthusiasts such as kitesurfing, windsurfing and sailing. Then there is the Tremezzina and its villages, including Lenno with the Gulf of Venus and the promontory of Punta Balbianello, where wonderful villas rise with sumptuous gardens: one on each Villa del Balbianello. Here, you will feel like being transported by a time machine in an era where elegance, delicacy and quiet reign: not by chance the Tremezzina and its Parco Olivelli were chosen by Dolce and Gabbana as locations for some of their fashion shows. And there is also the Comacina Island, the only island in Lake Como, that can only be reached by ferry, which offers unique panoramas and a surreal peace as it has been completely uninhabited for centuries. All of these places are Lake Como fairytale wedding venues. Are you ready to choose yours?
