Lake Como is home to a line-up of elegant lakeside towns, framed by mirrored waters and dramatic scenery. This naturally beautiful region of Italy has inspired poets and artists for centuries, making it one of the country’s most romantic regions. Weddings in Lake Como take place in Bellagio, known as ‘the pearl of the lake’ for its perfectly manicured gardens, elegant buildings and narrow cobbled streets.
