What people are saying about Varenna

It was very well organized and convenient especially being with young children. We've seen a lot in a day. The boat trip was magnificent as we enjoyed views from the Lake Como, while we also visited Bellagio & Varenna. No wifi was on board the bus not as promoted. The english language was very poorly translated but the guide did her very best to try and explain. It was a great day.

A MUST do! We booked it last minute & it ended up being our top experience! We had an AMAZING tour guide, Anna, who was not only knowledgable, but extremely helpful!! I would highly recommend this experience!!!

Great Guide and professional company. She gave us so many information and best spots on the cruise, also what is a must see. Highly recommended
