Varenna, the Village on the Lake


Varenna, a magnificent fishing village on the shores of Lake Como, dates back to the 11th Century. Those that walk its streets and pass by its perfumed gardens can breathe in the air of other times, and those strolling along the nearby lake pathway will be rewarded with a magnificent and romantic panorama. Castello di Vezio, used by Queen Theodelinda as a lookout point, hovers over Varenna, while a couple of luxe villas also decorate the scene - Villa Cipressi, with its terraced garden, and Villa Monastero, with a 2-kilometer long lakefront garden. The beauty and unique atmosphere of this spectacular lakeside village contribute to its reputation for being both inspirational and relaxing.
