lake como

a timeless location for your wedding

Lake Como, with its timeless beauty, has always welcomed dream weddings that boast luxurious elegance and unparalleled charm.

It offers historic villas that once hosted illustrious personalities, poets, writers and artists, and which today have become sought-after locations, for truly exclusive events.

These are charming villas where you can celebrate your ceremony in a beautiful garden overlooking the lake, and then continue with the reception on an elegant terrace, or an indoor hall decorated with frescoes and objets d’art. All your guests will be impressed by the beauty of the location and will be caught up in the aristocratic atmosphere of Lake Como.

Several villas also offer you the possibility to stay in their rooms, giving you the opportunity to bask in the splendour, not just for your special day, but for an extended holiday. What better way to soak up the magnificent atmosphere, together with your guests, and share in these memorable moments.

Each villa is stunning for different reasons, and has its own unique character and distinguished style. Here are just a few of the most luxurious villas on the lake. All you need to do is find which ones truly represents your vision.


Villa del Balbianello, with its scenic park and romantic tree-lined avenues, can host a truly exceptional wedding. Dating back to the 18th century, the villa is situated on a small peninsula surrounded by greenery. The enchanting loggia, which crowns the entire architecture, can host your ceremony in an atmosphere of great intimacy, while the reception can be held in the garden or on the veranda, or even in a hall inside the villa.

Villa del Balbianello is certainly the most famous of Lake Como‘s villas, but there are many others that boast extremely exclusive settings and offer a luxurious and privileged type of service.

Villa Passalacqua once hosted political figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte, and artists such as the famous composer Vincenzo Bellini. Set in a terraced garden facing the lake, the 18th-century Villa Passalacqua has recently become a luxury residence and offers refined rooms for your stay. Its grounds enriched with rose gardens, century-old trees and beautiful fountains, together with its precious interior rooms decorated with frescoes, stuccoes and Murano glass chandeliers, make this villa a lavish location to host a dream wedding.

Villa Pliniana is a true masterpiece of architecture. Built on a wooded mountain in the late 1500s by Count Giovanni Anguissola, it has hosted monarchs, scientists, artists and writers of great renown. Today the villa has become a luxury hotel and boasts a truly aristocratic and worldly setting. You can reach the location directly by boat and then walk up the ancient stone staircase to the garden, where you will find a breathtaking view of the lake, for an intimate ceremony. The reception can be held on the elegant terrace overlooking the lake, offering you an incredible backdrop steeped in great excellence.


Villa la Cassinella is synonymous with exclusivity and discretion. It is a lakeside residence immersed in nature, that can solely be reached by boat; offering a truly private place for those seeking a unique experience. It can accommodate a small number of people for very exclusive events.

In addition to these luxurious villas, we cannot fail to mention Villa Sola Cabiati, Villa D’Este and many other enchanted places immersed in the timeless beauty of Lake Como.
