Beautiful Lakes and Buildings

3. Lake Como

While not in Milan itself, Lake Como is just a short train ride away and offers some of the most romantic settings in Italy. You can propose by the lake, take a boat ride, or visit the charming town of Bellagio.


4. Bosco Verticale

If you both have a love for modern architecture, consider proposing at the Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest), a pair of residential towers with thousands of trees and plants on their balco.


Outdoor Locations to Propose in Milan

Milan is full of romantic gardens, parks, and wineries. These are some especially romantic locations for a proposal in a romantic park, viewing nature or enjoying a glass of wine or champagne in a secluded spot for the perfect proposal.

5. Gardens of Villa Necchi Campiglio

This historic villa features well-maintained gardens with a sense of tranquility in the heart of the city. It's an ideal place to propose if you're looking for a peaceful and elegant setting.


6. Rooftop of Milan Cathedral - Duomo

Climbing to the rooftop of Milan's iconic cathedral offers breathtaking views of the city, making it a fantastic place for a romantic proposal, especially at sunset or night when the cathedral is beautifully illuminated.


7. Castello Sforzesco

The courtyard of Sforza Castle offers a historical backdrop for your proposal. The castle itself is stunning, and you can find a quiet corner for a private moment.

8. Vineyards

Piedmont, a region in Northern Italy known for its stunning vineyards, delicious cuisine, and picturesque landscapes, is not too far from Milan. The Lombardy region, where Milan is located, is known for its wine production and has several beautiful vineyards and wineries that offer a picturesque backdrop for a proposal. Located about an hour's drive from Milan, the Franciacorta region is renowned for its sparkling wine, similar to Champagne. There are numerous wineries with stunning vineyard landscapes where you can plan a romantic proposal.


9. Brera District

The charming streets of the Brera district are perfect for a romantic proposal. The narrow cobblestone streets, boutiques, and artistic atmosphere make it a special place to pop the question.


10. Sempione Park - Parco Sempione

This tranquil park is situated right behind the Sforza Castle and provides a serene atmosphere for a proposal. You can choose a picturesque spot near the pond or under one of the park's tree-lined alleys.
