A proposal on Lake Como doesn’t grant a yes. But it definitely boost your chances to get a postive answer 🙂 . If you are looking to spend a few romantic days on lake Como and take this time to ask your beloved the important question, then you will need to organize all in the best way.
There are a lot of nice pretty locations on lake Como. We are selecting here the ones which are close to the lake, and get the chance to have privacy and romance.
Nesso is a little village, famous for the most beautiful waterfall on the lake. When you get close by boat, it looks like being in a painting. A old bridge in stone, the houses walls which ends in the water, and the sound of the big mass of water falling in the lake. This is the location you are not expecting to exist in Como. The best way to enjoy the view is by being on a private boat so that you can appriciate the view in full from the lake. You might also decide to arrive by land, it will be more complicated for finding parking, and there won’t be as much privacy as you would like to if you are arriving on a busy day during the high season. In this case, it is better arriving early in the morning or a bit later in the evening.
Villa Balbianello is the most famous villa on lake Como, and it has a fantastic view on all the central part of the lake. In the movie of Star Wars is where the two main characters fell in love. There are a few corners which are very special for doing the proposal, and you might just find them while walking in the park together with your beloved. If you want to avoid the crowds in high season, you might try to get there around 10am, when the villa just opens or around 5pm, just before it closes down. You can arrive on foot in 25 minutes, parking in Lenno, or with the shuttle boat, which also start from Lenno. You can get there also by private boat, which will wait you while being in the villa, and later continue to tour around the lake.
Villa Carlotta might be the right choice, especially if you are here around end of April and beginning of May, when there is the flower blossoming. This is the best period to see the villa, and any corners will be the right one for the proposal.
If you are in Bellagio, the best spot will be Villa Melzi. They have huge gardens, and at the very beginning, there is a little pond with bridge, which looks like coming out from the fairy tales. While there are many visitors in the villa, it is pretty easy to get a moment of privacy in these gardens.
Isola Comacina is for those who love quiet and nature, and really want to enjoy some long private moments of kiss after the proposal. The walk around the island is pretty long, but you might also get only half hour to get a bit inside the island. During some particular moments of the day, you might really find noone crossing your path. You can get here by ferry, private boat or shuttle boat.
If you are looking for something special for your lake Como proposal and love to sing, you can get a private boat with karaoke, and dedicate to your special one a romantic song. The lake is quite romantic everywhere, and you can just do the proposal whenever you feel it is the right moment.
