LAKE COMO VISITMy husband and I are celebrating our 30th

09/17/2021 - 09:18


My husband and I are celebrating our 30th  marriage anniversary in Lake Como in October. We would like to stay in a beautiful apartment that is near lake walks/hiking, cycling,  best restaurants  and lots of  town life.

We are looking at Como or Bellagio. Any suggestions?



I was in Varenna in 2018. It is a short ferry ride to Bellagio, which is wonderful but crowded. Rick Steves states that Varenna is his favorite place on Lake Como. You can rent a villa with a lake view, wander to the piazza, shop and eat at memorable places! I will go back. Enjoy your trip!

sure, contact me at - I can put together some great experiences for you....

BTW - I work with Vittoria Solano, she does have some great accomodations!!! I suggest you contact her for that!

I stayed in Varenna at Lake Como which was fantastic!  It is a quick ferry ride away from Bellagio - which is much more crowded and very hilly.  Rick Steves recommends Varenna, so that is why we stayed there and rented a villa with a view of the lake and mountains.  There is a lovely piazza, great shops and restaurants on winding streets leading to the lake.

There are two fantastic hotels also - even to visit for lunch or a cocktail.  Hotel Royal Victoria is at the piazza with fantastic views of the lake and a great outdoor bar.

Enjoy your trip!
