Where: Lake Como, Italy
The star-crossed lovers: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were rumored to be planning a secret lakefront wedding at the Villa before running off to Africa, and the always lovely Tori Spelling honeymooned with fourth-string TV actor Charlie Shanian here, just days after their million-dollar wedding and 15 months before she left him for her costar in the TV movie Mind Over Murder. More romantically, Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner often made the site a getaway.
Lovers' nest: This 16th-century, 153-room waterfront castle is famed for its Renaissance gardens. Couples might follow a stroll through the hedges and ancient sculptures with a dip in the pool that is cleverly set inside Lake Como, then retire to rooms with Old Master oil paintings and thick silk brocade drapes. Oh, and that massive property down the coastline? George Clooney's.
The dirt: As she's recently become a faux reality star in VH1's So NoTORIous, it was only fitting that Tori married Dean McDermott (who has an elaborate head shot of her tattooed onto his forearm), last month in—where else?—Fiji.
