WHY CHOOSE THIS LOCATION
There are endless reasons to get married here, among them, there’s the chance to reach your ceremony venue by a vintage wooden boat! And have one of the most glorious entrances for your wedding day ever. This is also something we strongly advise in order to plan your day making your exploration of the area an easier one. Most of the villages around the area are usually quite crowded and difficult to reach by walking.
HOW TO GET THERE
Eloping or getting married at Lake Como is quite easy. The easiest and most accessible option is to arrive from Milan, it is located about 90 minutes north of Milan and with quick access via either international flights into Milan or driving from France and Switzerland. Then to get to the city of Como, where the famous lake is found, there is a train in the Cadorna station which follows the route to Como Nord Lago and it takes one hour. Another option is to rent a vehicle in advance and go to the wedding venue by car. Or a cool idea would be if you are travelling a long haul to arrive in Italy, you can relax in lake Como, have your elopement and then visit other areas on your honeymoon.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF THE YEAR
What about the best moment of the year in terms of weather? The weather on the lake is always changing. The coldest months of Como, due to the humidity, are November to March. But we can say that from spring to early autumn is generally the best time, days are longer and it can be great for a later ceremony. Whilst the warmest months are from April to September; therefore the best months to visit are July and August, those months have the highest temperatures as they can reach up to 40 degrees Celsius. So let's say that the best dates to get married in Lake Como are in the summer months, when the temperature is the right one to celebrate a wedding or an elopement without worrying about the prospect of rain. But still, even that would have its own fascination and moodiness!
As a bonus tip: your stay in Lake Como can be filled with various activities to enjoy this marvellous location. From visiting a number of cafés and shops that will make your holiday unforgettable, to going, if you love fashion, to its clothing stores for all budgets. Walk towards Piazza San Fedele and lose yourself in the delightful little streets of the town centre, where you can enjoy handmade pasta together with the locals. Piazza San Fedele, originally a wheat market, is one of the main squares of Como and hosts a beautiful Romanesque church which dates back to 1120 the Basilica of San Fedele. If you happen to pass through this little square on Saturdays, you will have the chance to come across numerous stalls, where you can find some antiques and handcrafted items.
