Whether you choose to profess your love to the person of your dreams on the banks of this iconic lake or inside the halls of an ancient villa, a Lake Como wedding is the stuff fairytales are made of.
Sereno Hotels presents Lake Como’s most exclusive wedding venue – the awe-inspiring Villa Pliniana. Set on 18 waterfront acres and nestled within lush vegetation, this 16th century Italian Palazzo boasts 18 bedrooms re-designed by world-renowned Patricia Urquiola. One of the most luxurious wedding venues in Italy, Villa Pliniana offers a breathtaking setting for a big day that won’t easily be forgotten.

A legend in the industry, Michelle Rago has partnered with Villa Pliniana to create jaw-dropping masterpieces in the past. Read on for her top 4 reasons why Lake Como is the ultimate setting for a destination wedding like no other.
- All About Exclusivity
Although Lake Como can be a place to be and be seen, we love exclusivity for our clients. Villa Pliniana affords any couple complete privacy from prying eyes. It was once a private residence 500 years ago and now it’s a stunning boutique hotel with all the modern amenities. Our favorite spot in the villa is the Loggia which has a natural spring running through it and a beautiful reflecting pool where you can party the night away!
- Romantic Transportation
One of our favorite aspects of Lake Como is that the best way to get around is by boat. We partnered with Como Classic Boats- Lake Como’s premier classic wooden boat rental company- to curate a one of a kind fleet for the wedding day. We transported all the guests by Venetian Taxis from their respective hotels and the couple did their post ceremony photo session as husband & wife in a 1958 Riva Tritone, one of eight models in the world.
- Mouthwatering Cuisine
Italy is an amazing country when it comes to cuisine and Lake Como is no exception. Executive Chef Raffaeli Lenzi prepared a gorgeous menu and guests dined under a canopy of stars watching the sun set over Lake Como. It is a wedding we will not soon forget.
- Proximity to Local Talent
Lake Como is nestled 45 minutes by car from Milan and in proximity to many European cities with fabulous creative partners. You don’t need to look too far for talented companies, especially when it comes to décor, music and lighting.
