Como!! The lake and the villas.
On the northern tip of Italy, bordering Switzerland lies a little gem of a town named Como. Founded by the Romans, today the town’s claim to fame is the beautiful lake como and the spectacular villas that have served as the playground of the rich and famous for longer than one can remember. Como is full of old-world charm and naturally slides any visitor into a calm rhythm of life. One can spend day after day just enjoying leisurely walks interspersed with fabulous meals. Of course, the wine leaves no room for complaining, and one quickly understands why fiesta and siesta are such a big deal in Italy.
The town hosts many weddings, including a few Indian weddings. Were it not for the lack of bigger five-star hotels, Como could have been one of the best destinations for Indian weddings. But for a guest list of up to a few hundred, there are plenty of options. Agreed that it is difficult to look at Villa-de-Esta’s gardens and then stay someplace else, but 67 rooms of this iconic property can barely accommodate the immediate family of bride and groom, so there is no escaping short bus rides to and from other hotels.
Como is easily accessible from Milan and other major European cities, making it a convenient destination for guests travelling from around the world. The town’s old-world charm, exceptional cuisine, and gorgeous natural scenery make it a perfect choice for couples looking for an unforgettable wedding experience.
