I still can’t believe Robert proposed in Bellagio, which has to be one of the most amazing proposal places in Italy! You can’t beat a proposal with an Art Deco sapphire and diamond ring overlooking one of the most spectacular views in all of Lake Como!
He totally gets me :)
We stayed at a small family-owned hotel on a mountainside in Bellagio, which can be touristy, but not this early in the season. It was the perfect time of year, because it was still quiet and the days were warm, yet we could still see snow on top of the Alps, which was a beautiful contrast to the sun and palm trees below.
I love traveling in low season because the crowds are thin and the locals tend to be a bit more friendly. One afternoon, the GPS led us astray as we were looking for a market. Robert asked for directions and instead of giving us directions, the gentleman told us to follow him, and led us right to the market!
Experiences like that are some of my favorite parts of traveling, the simple kindness of strangers makes such a difference.
Here are some of my favorite photos from our days in Bellagio, which definitely one of the best proposal places in Italy, if not the whole world…
Other Proposal Places in Italy
Italy in and of itself is romantic, but if you’d like to avoid the cliche of proposing in a predictable place like Rome, Venice, or Tuscany, then Bellagio (or one of the other villages around Lake Como) definitely tops the list of the best proposal places in Italy. This information comes on good authority. One of Robert’s colleagues is from Milan and she told him that Bellagio was his only choice. She was right :)
