The Lombardy region

Varenna is a beautiful medieval lakeside village, on the eastern shore of Lake Como. Known as the "perla del lago" (pearl of the lake), for it's traditional feel, it is still one of the prettiest and unspoilt of the towns and villages on the lake shore. It is well served by road and rail (unlike the other side of the lake) and contains a number of hotels, bars, restaurants, art galleries and shops.


Lake Como has been visited and valued by travellers since Roman times, with mountains and valleys to explore and the lake to criss-cross, discover the many places to see and famous villas to admire during your stay. It is possibly unique in the fact that you can be a mountain biker, a hiker a walker or simply someone who likes to potter and sightsee, it is all close by.
