Lake Como Honeymoon: Less than one hour from bustling Milan, you can discover glamorous Lake Como, one of Italy’s most romantic holiday destinations.
Sightseeing at Lake Como is as simple as hopping on a ferry that links many of the major villages and towns on the lake. Although, for a taste of Lombardy’s dolce vita, I recommend hiring a small speed boat from one of the vendors along the lakeside promenade in Mennagio (no boat licence required) and cruise between the charming mid lake villages of Tremezzo, Bellagio and Varenna.
After a wander through the 17th century Villa Carlotta in Cadenabbia, pack a picnic and head down the road to the public park in Tremezzo. This peaceful local hotspot fringes the fresh water lake with a shallow pebble beach, making it a perfect spot for a summertime dip.
After lunch, visit the nearby town of Lenno and take a stroll through the lush gardens of the elegant Villa Balbianello, which has been featured in Hollywood blockbusters Casino Royal and The Star Wars films.
The Grand hotel Tremezzo’s T Beach Bar is the perfect place to wind down at sunset by their floating pool, before making your way to family run restaurant Al Veluu for superb local cuisine accompanied by the best panoramic views over the heart of the lake.
