Australian couples wishing to tie the knot in Italy can now do so in undoubtedly the world’s most romantic location at CastaDiva Resort & Spa on the shores of Lake Como.
The first and only hotel in this extraordinary location to offer civil ceremonies with legal value right, CastaDiva Resort & Spa has a fittingly romantic history. The hotel’s main Villa Roccabruna was once home to Italy’s most famous nineteenth century opera singers, Giuditta Pasta who inspired Bellini to compose his opera Norma whilst he was a guest at the villa. The renowned soprano was the first to perform Norma’s ‘Casta Diva’ when it debuted in the theatres of Milan and remains one of the most famous arias of the nineteenth century.
The opulent Villa Roccabruna lives on as the heart of the resort surrounded by a luxuriant waterfront botanic park sprawling over 26,000 sqm. This natural amphitheatre is the ideal backdrop for the most memorable and romantic of wedding ceremonies overlooking Lake Como. Additionally, the resort’s floating outdoor pool lends itself to spectacular light displays by night taking celebrations to another level.
