Serene, lakeside Varenna is a beautiful village lush with plants and flowers. The village rises upwards from the lake, through winding alleyways past traditional Italian architecture, to a row of lovely villas and a church. The best places to stay in Varenna are those with the best views of the lake.
Just a short ferry ride from bella Bellagio, with its pastel coloured villas and graceful cafes, and Menaggio and Griante, Varenna is also a lovely place from which to start strolling. You’ll find a heady mix of beauty and perfume whichever way you walk.
Just remember that Lake Como is an immensely popular destination, so if you want to guarantee a room in one of the best places to stay in Varenna, do yourself a favour and book early!
