Photo Tour of Varenna in Lake Como, Italy

Arriving to Varenna by ferry

In case you need more reasons to add Lake Como, Italy to your itinerary here are some photos to inspire you to explore further into Varenna. We stayed in Bellagio during our visit, but one “must” on my list was to take a ferry to Varenna and capture the town from the water.

Rainy days in Varenna

It was pouring rain the day we were heading out, but that sure didn’t stop us. And now that I look at it, the rain made for some pretty cool photos!

I just grabbed my colorful umbrella and made the most of my time.

More views from the ferry

There are other ways to get to Varenna from Bellagio, but I recommend the ferry. The ride is only 10-15 minutes long, and seeing this when you first arrive is unreal. Get your cameras ready!

Exploring the town

We had limited time in Lake Como, so we only spent a few hours in Varenna. Plus, though the rain is beautiful it made it hard to wander the streets for too long. I do recommend more than 2 days to explore this part of Italy. Lake Como has several towns that we didn’t even get to because of our time limits.

    I almost went there last month but ended in Tuscany instead. Maybe next time I will visit Lake Como and Venice! I need a year to explore Italy lol

    I literally just took this same ferry ride back at the end of March. We were staying in Lecco, with my cousin and then took the ferry over to Varenna to do a cooking class (links to all that on my site, mommatogo.com) beautiful pics. funny thing too, the weather on the day we went was the same!

      Funny that it was the same weather! It almost stopped us from going, but I’m so glad we made it happen!
