Varenna is a nice lakeshore town in lake Como. Built on a rocky promontory it was for centuries a sentinel at the heart of the lake.
Varenna today is a quietly refined town with beautiful old houses and romantic panoramas. The climate is particularly mild, as witnessed by the presence of olive and cypress trees together with other botanical specimens normally found in much warmer climates. Along the lakefront is a romantic walkway, abounding in flora, linking the town centre and Olivedo, the landing point for ferries and steamers.
Varenna is the ideal starting point for a visit to the north/center of Italy and southern Swiss Alps. It is less then two hours from the Milano Malpensa airport and 1 hour from the Milano Linate airport.
Place to visit: the castle of Vezio (5 minutes walking from the villa). The gardens of villa Monastero, a neo-classical garden offering a long walk along the lakeshore.
Bellagio and Menaggio are 15 minutes by Ferry. So are tremezzo and the famous Villa Carlotta, as well as Como, with its ancient monuments, churches and shopping areas.
