Villa del Balbianello - the dream location in the heart of Como
Como is home to some of the most stunning villas in Italy, but none are quite as famous as Villa del Balbianello. This historic villa has played a starring role in blockbuster movies such as Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and James Bond - Casino Royale. It's no wonder that it's a top choice for weddings and events, as well as a popular tourist destination.
As a wedding photographer, I've had the pleasure of working at Villa del Balbianello numerous times, and I can attest to its charm and beauty. The villa's picturesque surroundings and stunning architecture make it the perfect backdrop for any special occasion.
Recently, I had the opportunity to arrive at the villa early and take some photos of the area. I was thrilled to be able to capture the beauty of this magnificent villa in a more intimate way. Although most of the images were taken on Kodak Portra 800 (35 mm) film, which isn't as sharp and contains some grain, I hope they still give you a sense of the villa's timeless elegance.
If you're planning a trip to Como, I highly recommend adding Villa del Balbianello to your itinerary. You won't be disappointed by its stunning views, lush gardens, and rich history. And if you're looking for a wedding or event venue, this villa is sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests.
