Lake Como: wedding destination

This week we will talk about our third "magic" destination: Lake Como, the favorite of George Clooney !

The third largest lake of Italy is famous for its romantic landscapes, a refined and elegant atmosphere and its villas. Probably the most famous and exclusive one is Villa del Balbianello in Lenno,  available for civil ceremony (with legal validity) and receptions.

For a Catholic wedding on Lake Como we advise the Varenna Church, 15 minutes by boat from Bellagio.

For a Civil wedding, you'll have a greater choice of locations: in Tremezzo, Bellagio, Varenna, Cernobbio you can have your ceremony in wonderful villas or flowering gardens of camelias.

From the past, Lake Como has been a retreat for aristocrats and wealthy people and a very popular tourist attraction with many artistic and cultural gems.

Among its villas  we can count Villa OlmoVilla SerbelloniVilla Carlotta, Villa Melzi d’Eril, Villa d’Este.

The weather on Lake Como is generally mild. It is known for its Mediterranean-like climate where tropical and sub-tropical plants can grow all year round.

Lake Como is easily accessible from Milan Malpensa Airport (about 45 minutes drive) and one hour from Milan.

The Lake Como ferry service is a highly developed public transport system linking the dozens of small towns and villages dotted around the perimeter of the Lake.

The banks have inspired many artists all over the centuries: poets such as Alessandro Manzoni,  Herman Hesse and Percy B. Shelley and has been home of famous movies such as Star Wars, Ocean’s Twelve and 007 Casino Royale.
