Description

Varenna is at the mid-point of the lake's eastern shore and it is positioned on a rocky headland dominated by a mountain, whose summit bears the unmistakable silhouette of the tower of an ancient castle.

Varenna is an unusual town. On the one hand, it is a lively and attractive tourist destination with several accomodation facilities, while on the other, it is home to one of today's best preserved medieval centres in the entire lake area.

The town has many points of interest, such as the Church of St. John the Baptist , which is one of the oldest in the Lario region, Villa Monastero, once a Cistercian female convent, with its impressing gardens and interesting architectural elements, Vezio Castle, vertically positioned 100 m over the piazza. The view from atop the tower encompasses the lake and a unique panorama.

Very interesting is also the enchanting promenade to the lake that unwinds amidst houses, villas, gardens and shops.
