... a popular destination since the ancient  Roman times, is a top romantic wedding destination and a great spot for your wedding pictures.

From Cernobbio to Isola Comencina (Lake  Como's only island), the western shore has much to offer: hotels of different categories (all of them comfortable, some of them world-famous), churches in fantastic positions, century-old gardens and parks, ancient and modern buildings. Walks in the mountains above the lake offer the chance of crossing the border of Switzerland.

Steamers, ferryboats and buses serve all the main towns on Lake Como. Frequent ferryboat services connects the central resorts of Lenno, Tremezzo, Cadenabbia, Menaggio, Bellagio and Varenna, including a car ferry. A less frequent but faster boat travels the full length of the lake from the town of Como. Buses run approximately hourly all the way up the west coast from Como round to Colico at the north-east.

While the top three runners-up are :

Lake Garda
It is situated well to the east of the other close to Verona and Venice and  many ferries can swiftly take you from one village to the next. Lake Garda is "the land where the lemon trees flower" which fascinated Goethe. It is famous for its Mediterranean climate, its blue waters, its abundant vegetation, its attractive villas and gardens, the variety of the landscape and the efficiency of the tourist services.

The beautiful lakeside towns around Lake Garda as Malcesine, Torri del Beneco, Bardolino, Sirmione, Salò. Dsenzano del Garda, Lazise, Peschiera, Garda, Torbole have charmed foreign visitors for centuries. Even for the ancient Romans, the area was a luxury summer destination; in Sirmione and Desenzano you can visit many ruins and mosaics of the Roman Empire.

Lake Orta
Magic is the atmosphere of Lake Orta. The medieval village of Orta is rich of splendid ancient palaces, baroque churches and ancient towers. Just a short boat-ride away is the Isola di San Giulio with its Romanesque basilica, the mystical symbol of the entire lake.

Lake Iseo is the fourth largest lake in the Lombardy region of Italy, situated just north of Brescia and Bergamo. It is not well known outside Italy and, therefore, less touristy. Lake Iseo is full of fish which are served at  restaurants all around its shores. It's also a richly agricultural area, with small vineyards, allotments and olive groves stuffed with abundance. The lake  scenery and the large island of Monte Isola are Iseo's prime attractions.
