The Lombardy region

Varenna is a village crossed by a net of picturesque small streets, which reach a suggestive promenade that goes along the lake for almost one kilometre. Its roots come from prehistory but it conquered communal freedom only during the Middle Ages. It became famous thanks to its black and white marble.


In Varenna you can visit:

San Giorgio's Church, hallowed in 1313 and restructured in 1957, is a basilica in Romanic style having three naves. The most precious work it contains is the Cross Deposition in coloured stone;

Church of San Giovanni Battista, in Romanic style, probably one of the first churches built along the Lake. It has a single nave with apse and its paintings date back to the XV century;

Villa dei Cipressi, in Neoclassic style; visitors may avail themselves of an interesting botanic way created in its secular gardens. The terraces of the Villa degrading towards water represent a natural world source;

Villa Monastero, whose name comes from the first usage of the building as a place for spiritual withdrawal of Cistercian sisters of Santa Maria Maddalena. Among the sculptures adorning the villa, we must underline “Tito's mercy“, the last unfinished work by G.B. Comolli (1830). Its gardens, facing the lake, represent an integrant part of the local atmosphere and charm. It is possible to visit the rooms of Villa Monastero, recognised as a museum house;

Vezio Castle, 383 metres high, you can see the tower of a medieval castle, where the Longobardic queen Teodolinda lived, which dominates the village of Varenna;

Museum of Ornithology and Natural Sciences, in Varenna, Via IV Novembre, shows local and migrant examples of the fauna which populates Italy and specifically the Lake of Como.

In Varenna you can find:

Fiumelatte, an outlying ward of Varenna, so called for the white foam of the seasonal river which gushes out a grot only in spring and, after a short course, enters the Lake of Como;

Esino Lario, small inhabited village in the mountains, 913 metres, called “the pearl of Grigne“ thanks to its splendid position;

Bellano's Orrido, a natural gorge created by the Pioverna river, which, over centuries, has shaped enormous basins and suggestive grots;

Wanderer's path, a 2-4 hours' trip from Varenna to Bellano/Dervio wherefrom you can be delighted from an unexcelled panoramic vision.

In Varenna you may choose among:

Trekking, climbing, Nordic walking: in the province of Lecco and Como;

Bike, mountainbike: cycling routes in Colico, Menaggio and along the river Adda;

Golf: “Menaggio e Cadenabbia golf club“;

Tennis, bows, football: Vezio's Castle;

Swimming: equipped beach with beds, deck-chairs, dressing-rooms and showers in Varenna;

Spa/swimming pool/gym: Bellagio, Villa Serbelloni;

Sailing: “Centro Vela Dervio“;

Windsurf and kitesurf: Colico;

Rowing and water-skiing: many centres along the lake in the province of Lecco and Como.
