Italy Honeymoon Romantic City Break

LAKE COMO TRAVEL INSPIRATION

Whether you’re planning a honeymoon, a romantic weekend away or family holiday, we all love a little travel inspiration!  I’m so excited to add this new feature to B.LOVED, and I already have months of beautiful destinations lined up and ready to share from some very talented photographers.  This week we’re visiting the shores of Lake Como and cosmopolitan Milan with Claire Graham Photography.  To me Italy is the perfect contrast of city chic and rustic style, and having only been to Venice (on a college art trip) it’s a country high on my wish list to get back to.  For now though, I’ll have to carry on dreaming…

Destination: Lake Como, Italy

Where did you stay? Grand Hotel Villa Servelloni, Bellagio

What made you pick the destination? I love Italy and Lake Como was one of the many beautiful lakes I hadn’t been to yet.

What would you recommend to do? I would highly recommend visiting a restaurant called Trafforia San Ciacomo. It is small and the food is amazing. Make sure you book a ticket to travel on the boat to the other towns and Como. The boat journeys offer beautiful trips that you would get from travelling in the car.

What would be your top packing tips?  Bring smart-casual clothing, the Italians certainly know how to dress! It does get very hot, so make sure you pack your chic city shorts too!

Would you visit again? Yes, without any hesitation!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
