Life on the lake is exceptionally well organised with an established ferry service that has been around since 1952 with its origins going as far back as 1826. The reason so many choose Lake Como to celebrate their wedding is often influenced by the celebrities that have chosen to set up

The awe-inspiring scenery which supports the reputation of the locations around this lake means that with some creative inspiration anything is possible for your wedding.
The attraction of this beauty spot has led to a well-developed infrastructure of hotels, venues, spas, activities and of course a transport network. The huge choice in terms of activities will mean that everyone and anyone will enjoy their time at Lake Como. Those that like to do it themselves can enjoy hiking the surrounding mountain trails. If you prefer a guided tour it can take place from the sky in a helicopter or seaplane. Food is a central feature here and you could take a local cooking class, or simply explore the Lecco food tour.
If you’re crazy about cycling, there are bikes for hire all over, or you could also take one of the guided cycling trips. Biking tours and hiking opportunities aside, there is also an excellent opportunity for kayaking.
