LAKE COMO is one of the most picturesque and exclusive places in Italy. It is no coincidence that many famous people, including the actor George Clooney, have chosen it as their summer residence. It is a magical place where the great beauty of the villages, set against the backdrop of the Italian Alps, is reflected in the crystal-clear waters and where history and charm are at home. Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio, Como, and Lecco are just some of the places on our beloved lake not to be missed. The villages on the three branches of the lake have magnificent Villas with lush gardens, ancient Castles and seemingly infinite cobblestoned passageways where you can breathe in the history and unique character of Italy.

And VARENNA is the ideal destination from which to experience it as it offers all of the summer pleasures of the lake, but also scenic hikes and activities in the mountains above during all seasons. It is perfectly situated in the center of Lake Como and is easily reachable by Car or by Ferry Boat and it is uniquely served by the fast Train from Milan.
