Destination Weddings in Como

Como, an elegant and charming resort a mere 40 minutes from Milan, is the main town on the shores of lake Como. Beautiful villas, flowering gardens and parks as well as busy cafés, are all part of the backdrop of this scenic destination. The heart of town, a delight to discover, is explored on foot and dates from the middle ages.

Piazza San Fedele, in the middle of Como’s walled Old Town, is packed with ancient buildings and the basilica, considered to be the best example of transitional architectural styles, is one of the works of art of the maestri comacini. The Porta Vittoria stands at the top of Via Cantu’, and is the old wall’s most impressive standing tower. The city’s third great basilica, the early romanesque San Corpoforo, is also nearby and is a must-see for visitors. Piazza Cavour is one of the best vantage points for an overall view of the lake.

It is in Como that some of the finest silks of the world are made and whether you are looking for an elegant scarf or a swath of fabric for a dress, you should browse in the many shops offering a variety of multicolored options.

A truly exciting location for your wedding in Italy!
