My second and last stop in my short visit at lake como was in varenna.
a fishing village which dates from the 11th century, varenna is a jewel amongst the most important tourist destinations on lake como.
its sunny position facing south offers a breathtaking panorama over one of the most beautiful sections of lake como with bellagio in front and menaggio to the right.
placed like a sentinel in the mid-section of lake como, at the intersection of the three branches of the lake, varenna forms an excellent home base to visit the triangle area formed by bellagio, menaggio, and cadenabbia or to explore the hiking and mountain bike trails of the esino valley.
