I was treated to the most fantastic experience at Villa del Balbianello! We were brought by boat to Villa dei Balbianello for the wedding of two very dear friends. Upon arrival we were split into intimate groups and treated to private tours of the Villa. The tour guides were so enthusiastic and happy to have us. My goodness! The rooms, the history, the decor, the artifacts - some of the most rare items I have ever witnessed, together, all in one place! The grounds are just lovely and the views are impressive. My experience wasn't just special because of the wedding, I felt this way even amidst some of the heaviest rain I have experienced in some time. If the wedding guests could handle the terrain in heels, gowns and downpour, you can handle it in walking shoes on a sunny day! I felt like I was in a movie, a dream, throughout a memorable visit to Villa del Balbianello!
