Varenna – a paradise by a glacier lake

Last summer in Lombardy it wasn’t neither Milan, nor Bellagio that stole my heart. I got stuck on a charming port in Varenna Como Lake in Italy. Why?

  • „Do not cross the yellow line” at a train station becomes a real challenge

Line on the station

  • The time stops ticking in Villa Monastero and you realize that you can stay there for hours simply observing the garden

  • You will go up a hill despite extreme heat to see the view from the Castle of Vezio

Sculptures in the garden

…once again you will find yourself trying not to cross the yellow line at the station.
