LA DOLCE VITA
Discover a tranquil Italian getaway for your destination nuptials in Lake Como.
For centuries, the world’s elite have traveled to Lake Como to experience the magical villas, grand gardens, and spectacular scenery. Just over an hour drive from Malpensa International Airport in Milan, Italy, Grand Hotel Tremezzo awaits couples desiring a destination wedding or honeymoon with an enchanting backdrop. The family-owned, five-star Art Nouveau property built in 1910 offers 76 rooms and 15 suites – some of which include a private terrace and pool – that present comfortable accommodations showcasing period décor. Five restaurants, three swimming pools, a private beach, a newly renovated spa, and access to a number of land and water activities ensure travelers will enjoy their stay amidst the lakeside splendor of the palace. Guests are now also provided with exclusive access to Villa Sola Cabiati
– a historic villa that, until recently, had been reserved for private use since the 1700s. Located along the Riviera della Tremezzina, couples can be whisked to the 18th century estate via traditional or water limousine to enjoy a romantic proposal, intimate dinner party, or an opulent wedding. grandhoteltremezzo.com
