The celebs: Oprah, Bill Clinton, Bono and Rihanna
The Celebs: Emily Blunt and John Kransinski
The Locale: Lake Como - Villa d'Este
While arguably George Clooney put Lake Como on the modern day map, celebs have been vacationing on the famed lake for generations. One visit to this surreal region of calm lake waters, luxury hotels and lavish villas, and there's no question why Lake Como should be on your annual circuit for elegant, low-key luxury. At the pinnacle of iconic hotels is Villa d'Este, located in the quaint town of Cernobbio. With its own helipad, which gets more use than the runway at JFK, floating swimming pool and lavish common areas, it's no wonder it was the scene of Emily Blunt nad John Krasinski's celeb-filled wedding. While it's peeking during the summer months, April through May are lovely months of off-season where it's like your own private lake.
