One of the pearls of the Lecco branch of the Lake is, unquestionably, the beautiful Varenna.
A pedestrian lakefront, the famous “Walk of lovers”, welcomes visitors by accompanying them along a path suspended on the Lake, which gradually reveals the sweetness of this truly unique village.
Rich in history like many other resorts of the Lake, the first known settlement in the territory of today’s town dates back to the middle of the 4th century, Varenna is well worth a visit for many reasons.
Among these will undoubtedly be the possibility of raising the level of the Lake to reach the beautiful Castle of Vezio. Beautiful fortified structure dating back to its origins, at an uncertain time as it was ancient, certainly before the year of the thousand.
You should visit the beautiful Churches of St. George and St. John the Baptist, worthy of a visit for religious and architectural culture.
A day lived in Varenna, however, must finish with a dinner in one of the many restaurants overlooking the Lake, enveloped by the warmth of one of the most beautiful sunsets that the Lake can offer to those who visit him.
