Lake Como, Italy
This picturesque getaway was another European location that remained relatively peaceful for many years, until the Hollywood elite decided to set up shop there. Not that anyone can blame the richest celebrities in the world from spending their money enjoying majestic castles and towering cathedrals.
Lake Como was discovered by this group of elite stars in much the same way Bridget Bardot “founded” Saint-Tropez, France by sharing her discovery with her Hollywood friends. In the case of Lake Como however, it was an ultra-elite star of both movies and television that sauntered and smirked his way into owning a gorgeous lakeside villa, that started the super-star migration to this part of the Italian coast.
The infamous George Clooney fell in love with Lake Como years ago, and he has spread the word among his friends. His friends from “Ocean’s 11” have been around, as Matt Damon and Brad Pitt have been known to frequent the area. It is probably a small blessing that Alicia Silverstone has not been seen combing these Italian beaches, so there is no imminent fear of Clooney donning the Bat-suit again anytime soon.
