I came here as part of a day trip - it is beautiful scenery with a large expanse of water, even on a cloudy day. Its worth going on a little boat trip around the lake (especially if you have a great tour guide to explain things along the way!) which takes around 2 hours and you get to see famous properties e.g. George Clooneys house (not that exciting but a talking point for the guides nonetheless!). There are many bars and restaurants around the lake too.

Spent a few days in Varenna on the banks of lake Como. Wonderful scenery and a great place for a restful break.

WARNING: The lakeside walk is charming but criminals operate in the area, so beware. DO NOT leave anything valuable in your car, even locked in the boot, for example. Evil men lurk around with car keycode readers and simply unlock your car for a rummage.

My husband and I arrived on 25th August for 7 nights and stayed at the beautiful Bellavista hotel owned and run by the lovely Cristina & Carlo. From the moment we arrived we were given a friendly warm welcome and taken to our beautiful spotless clean room. Breakfast was included and had lovely selection of juices, meats, cheese, cereals, eggs , breads and pastries and was always very well replenished and a stunning lake view
while enjoying our breakfast.
This hotel had absolutely gorgeous Lake views and was very close to lovely places to visit. We took a boat trip to Bellagio which took an hour and a half. Breathtakingly beautiful!!
We hired a car but didn't use it that much as you can take a short boat trip to various local towns. There wasn't a great choice of restaurants nearby but you can take a short boat trip to the beautiful Lecco where you will find a great choice of restaurants, Cafes and indeed great shops too. You can also walk to Lecco in about 45 minutes, taking in the beautiful sights along the lakeshore road.
Overall we had a beautiful experience and we would definitely recommend Hotel Bellavista, Valmadrera.
Cristina & Carlo were the perfect hosts,
beautiful couple.
Thank you
John & Martin. (Dublin).

My husband and I had an amazing experience with WeddingBox in Lake Como. We worked with Annie, who was absolutely incredible! We planned our wedding from Los Angeles, CA and got married at Villa del Balbianello in Lake Como. Annie was so great during the entire process. She kept us organized and helped us make decisions on venue, hotels, day of details, food, music, and more. Our wedding was perfect! We were completely stress free the entire process because we knew we were in good hands and Annie was handling everything for us. I highly recommend working with Annie at WeddingBox Lake Como.
