All About Lake Como
Located just a few miles from the Swiss border in the beautiful foothills of the Alps, Lake Como is widely regarded as one of Italy’s most impressive lakes. Shaped like a ‘Y,’ the lake winds amid towering peaks and lush lowland vegetation. It’s home to dozens of fashion, film and athletic luminaries as well. Despite its world-class views and pastoral setting, Lake Como is one of Europe’s most convenient non-urban destinations: It’s just 90 minutes from the major city – and international airport – of Milan.
Two Beautiful Wedding Options
Getting married in Lake Como couldn’t be easier. While it’s dotted with beautiful villages and towns, two locations stand out in particular: the small community of Varenna and the secluded resort complex of Villa del Balbianello. Although they sit on opposite shores of the lake, both offer tremendous views of the surrounding mountains and feature sumptuous accommodations that are sure to wow your wedding party and guests.
Convenience, Class and Character
Italian Lakes Wedding doesn’t just offer advice about where to plan your wedding. It also provides access to experienced, highly professional wedding planners who operate exclusively in the Lake Como area and take care of every step of the planning, execution and aftermath of local weddings. Whether you’re inviting hundreds of guests to a decadent blowout or hosting an intimate gathering for your closest friends and relatives, their incredible attention to detail and their eye for personal touches that make any wedding unique. With these experts at your side, you won’t have to spend weeks attending to unexpected emergencies.
