Amazing place in an amazing and characteristic little city. If you visiting Varenna you can skip this place. You will completely fall in love with Como lake. The view, the garden are amazing. The house museum is not that exciting but it is part of the building so it is worth visiting. Inside the villa you can also find a little bar to have a coffee with the amazing wonderful view. The price is not that expensive and the staff was really nice!
Entry to the garden, for an inexpensive price, offers you a tranquil place to rest with the beautiful view of Lake Como in front of you. It is also a great place to take photos and to admire the plants and flowers. The garden looks like they are very well taken care of, and the greenery is vibrant and alive even when we visited in December. One of the highlights of my trip to Varenna.
