Yes, its name is villa del Balbianello.
Before your ceremony, you will doubtless take a walk by boat on the lake, admiring the beauty of nature. Arriving at the villa, you will have an amazing walk around the villa, going up to the top, you will see the villa from different sides: breathtaking views, centuries-old trees and paths and finely you will get the central Loggia Durini, the catchy place of the villa.
Cardinal Angelo Durini created this place in the 18 century as a pleasure place.
He built the famous loggia with 3 arches and 2 side rooms. One of the rooms became a library and meeting place. Another had the function of a music room.
The last owner Guido Monzino decided to create here not only his own house, but also a cultural center for storing expedition documents and collections. Here you can see unique exhibits of Chinese art, 150 drawings of the seventeenth century made by glass by masters of Veneto, artifacts of the pre Columbian era, English, French furniture of the 18 century.
You understood yet that if you would like to have your wedding here, book it in advance. The villa is a popular touristic place, but you can rent Loggia for your ceremony and also you can have an Italian aperitif, and photo shooting as well. But keep in mind that there may be many tourists.
If you want more privacy, book the villa on Monday, Wednesday or Saturday when the villa is closed for visit. So you can have a whole villa for your wedding.
