Town accessibility, via road, ferry and the railway station. This allows those who do not wish to hire a car, to arrive by boat or train. Without a car however, the need to stay central is greatly increased, as Lake Como is surrounded by steep hillsides. Most facilities are located in the small towns around the lake's edge and the majority of accommodation spread across the mountain sides.
Guests can easily reach the many amenities and Lakeside attractions by foot. The early Victorian part of Varenna provides a choice of lake view Cafes, many fine Villas and the famous and historical Castello di Vezio, which is situated on the Varenna hillside and which features frequent Falconry displays and medieval re-enactments during the Summer-Autumn time. The Ferry also operates from here, providing guests with an enjoyable and care-free way of exploring Bellagio, Menaggio and other Lake Como towns.
You can also catch a train from Varenna to Venice or Varenna to Bergamo & be back in the evening on the same day!
Travelling by train is so easy & cheap in Italy. Take a day trip to Milan - see the incredible cathedral, Leonardo's 'The Last Supper' or shop in the famous 'Galleria di Vittorio Emanuele' or the chic 'Quadrilatero' - the area of four streets which offer the very best fashion boutiques, antique shops and jewellers, the Mecca of designer shops!
