    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.

    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!

    I stayed in a single room (10m2) it had everything you could need. Relatively comfy bed, free wifi, clean amenities and good location. The hotel is located in the heart of Varenna and is only a short walk from the train station. The breakfast in the hotel was pretty good and consisted of fresh croissants, bread with various spreads, orange juice, coffee and fried eggs. I also had dinner at the restaurant in the hotel and the food was delicious and well priced.

    This is a 1 star hotel. It provides a comfortable stay in a very convenient location with 1 star service. In my opinion, this was not cheap (110 per night for 1 person on a weekday with no breakfast. This is not a place for a special occasion, but is a bed in a decent size room a few minutes walk from ferry/train/centre. Varenna itself is pretty, but better to visit than stay in. Restaurants are busy/pre-booked abd over priced. Hotels the same.

    We enjoyed our stay here. Everything in the apartment was a bit dated, but clean and in good condition. The apartment included the use of not one, but three terraces, each with increasingly better views of Varenna and Lake Como. Wow. Enzo and Antonella were great hosts. This is a private apartment on the lowest level of their home, but it did have a separate entrance. The washing machine worked well, and they had a drying rack for us to use.

    We loved our stay at Villa Varenna! Mauro and Paulo were wonderful hosts, and made us feel so welcomed. STRONGLY recommend you upgrade for the terrace room. The view of Lake Como and the Alps were magnificent. Waking up each morning, and having coffee on the terrace was a highlight of the trip. Mauro was so very helpful in telling us the best places to eat, Breakfast was lovely. Quiet area, even though were minutes from train station

    The property is in a prime location - 7 minutes walk from the Varenna Esimo train station and 3 minutes walk to the ferry. It is a lovely apartment, very clean and tidy, with lake view in the guest bedroom (the one with 2 single beds) and kitchen, and Mountain View in the master bedroom and living room. The host was very responsive to our questions before and during the stay. I highly recommend it to travelers to Lake Como!

    The 2-bedroom apartment was spacious and clean, with a good-sized common area for relaxing. Fully equipped kitchen, washing machine and powder were provided. The uninterrupted view of Lake Como from the balcony was amazing. The walk into town (a good portion along a pretty laneway) was enchanting. Staying close to Varenna was lovely, as it is such a pretty town with lots to see.

    The whole experience of staying at Casa Pergola was fantastic starting from the moment we were greeted at the railway station by Alberto. The location of Casa Pergola is perfect. Varenna is a beautiful place to stay. Alberto provided us with places to eat, visit and explore. We recommend this property to anyone who is looking to visit and stay at this location on Lake Como.

    Small family run hotel in great location. The room was nice and very clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff was very nice and helpful. The breakfast was not huge, but everything we wanted was there. We will happily stay here again next time we’re in Varenna.

    After staying in hotels for most of the trip, it was wonderful to stay in an apartment with all facilities. Has view over Lake Como. Communication with the manager was very good to access keys and providing link to the ferry schedule.
