    Easy walk about town.

    Easy walk about town. Wear good walking shoes steps are steep and not always a handrail. Beautiful gardens and scenery. Easy hop on a ferry to go to the other towns. Hike up to the castle is 30 min. I would have felt more comfortable with a walking stick. Make sure to have water.

    Picturesque and just charming.

    Picturesque and just charming. Loved the waterfront, walking on the bridge, flowers, vibe and restaurants on the water. Ferry efficient and pleasant, easy to access other towns. Food superb at Nilas - great, friendly waitress - perfect spot on the lake. Ensure you have plenty gelato. :)

    Loved Varenna. So beautiful, straight out of a movie scene.

    Loved Varenna. So beautiful, straight out of a movie scene. Do a wine tasting, there are many options there. There is a lot of uneven cobblestones and a million stone stairs. Have sturdy shoes with grip. You walk everywhere. I wouldn’t recommend for someone who is unsteady, walks with a cane, has bad knees. I saw people with baby strollers, but I wouldn’t recommend it, seemed awful with all of the stairs. Not a kid friendly location. Food was fantastic…eat all the bread, it’s not like in the US. Take a cooking class. Take the ferry to Bellano and visit Orrido di Bellano. Next time, I would not bother with Bellagio visit. I would’ve liked the boat ride on the lake and botanical gardens…next time.

    Lots of options throughout the area - not just Varenna.

    Lots of options throughout the area - not just Varenna. So why Varenna?Easy access via train without needing more hops to get somewhere else. Probably more things in other villages if you're looking for a party scene. We tend to stay out later than some and we found enough places to seek out in our three nights. This may have included buying a bottle of wine and enjoying it out on the balcony, but still. Just liked the vibe as subjective as that is. Special shout outs to Hotel Olivedo, Locanda del Cavallino, Taxi Boat Varenna and Osteria Quatro Pass.

    Not a lot on the agenda of 'must see' attractions other than relaxing view of the gorgeous lake and mountains, and side trips by ferry to neighboring Menaggio and Bellagio. A relaxing time in a relaxing environment.

    Varenna is beautiful.

    Varenna is beautiful. The lake views are awesome, with easy access to the ferries to the other islands. The Gardens of Villa Monastero were absolutely stunning. We loved having immediate access to the Greenway for a safer walking experience. And a number of excellent restaurants.

    We love the vibe at Hotel Beretta and the staff is the best, especially Barbara. If yo are looking for a luxury Lake Como place, go to Bellagio. We love Varenna more. The hotel location is great, close (5 min walk) to the train if you are traveling by train, close ( 5 minute walk) to the ferries if you want to use the ferries, close to the start of one of the trails to the castle (2 min walk), and a short walk from everything else. Next door is a grocery store. Hot water kettle in the room, if you want coffee, bring your own packets.

    Ottilio responded immediately to our concerns. He asked his friend Lorenza to meet us at the parking lot and walked us down a minute to this complete & beautiful apartment. Lorenza gave us a thorough introduction to the apartment and Varenna. It has clothes washer, dishwasher, microwave, stove. Location is 1 minute from train station and parking, 5 minutes to lake and boats. Easy travel by boat to Bellagio and Menaggio. Home away from home! Proseco a welcome touch! Thank you Ottilio and Lorenza for a beautiful stay in Varenna!

    We very much enjoyed our stay at the Camilla House. The house was in a great location, close to Varenna, where other towns on the lake (Bellagio, Menaggio...) can easily be reached by ferry . Marilena was an amazing host. She picked us up at the train station and showed us what to see in Varenna. She was also very available throughout the stay. The house is very clean and has everything you need to cook. We would highly recommend the Camilla House for a memorable stay with stunning views on lake Como.

    Spacious room, comfy bed, nice kitchen - and gorgeous view of the lake and mountains from the window and the terrace. The town's center and ferry dock is close by, just a 5 minute walk and there's a nice store down the road. Oscar was very welcoming and helpful - explained about the lake attractions, left us the remote control for the parking. We loved Varenna (it's much prettier than Bellagio btw) and our stay at Residenza Decimina.

    The Casa Mary window views looking north and south along Lake Como were fantastic. The location a block from the ferry dock in Varenna was so convenient. You could hop on a ferry and have lunch in Menaggio or Bellagio then return to Varenna before dark. The apartment was very cozy and clean. We were able to cook pasta and play Cascadia while drinking wine and enjoying the endless views.

    Location is great. Easy access to harbor for ferries to visit other coasts. All tourist attractions at Varenna are close to hotel. Reception service was good and they took luggage to safe before check in. Room also has safety locker and the door to apartments stays locked all time so it feels safe. Air conditioner included. Breakfast included (although a bit basic). Pets are allowed.

    We fall in love with this cute house near to Lake Como. It's a charming place with green door, huge bed and large terrace, where you can eat your breakfast with beautiful view. Also, we recommend the whole Varenna city, which is one of the prettiest towns on the lake. Contact with the host was very good, it turned out to be helpful. Grazie!

    Very picturesque location looking out over Lake Como. Great walking path into the centre of Varenna, which took about 40 minutes. Lucca was very helpful at check-in, and there was free parking right outside the apartment. It was very quiet and peaceful!

    Location of this hotel is fantastic for a stay in Varenna. Authentic Italian style hotel. Rooms are quite basic but that didn't bother us. Very clean and offered to clean after one night but we declined. Breakfast is fine.

    Location is wonderful and scenic with great access to Lake Como transport. Restaurants in Varenna generally were only ok with many of the top-end over priced. Much better value to be had in pizzerias.
