Friendly Tour along Varenna & Como Lake

Varenna, Italy

Experience hosted by Hany&Ceci

3 hours
Up to 4 people
Hosted in Italian, Arabic, English, Spanish, French, Tagalog

What you'll do

A unique village on the east side of Como Lake, Varenna has a centuries-old tradition in tourism and a strong appeal which attracts tourists every year from all over the world.
Our walk will begin at the ferry/train station and we will start our journey walking along the Path of Love where it is possible to take unique and exciting photos and selfies with a spectacular view of lake and mountains.
Once we reach the heart of Varenna we will admire the principal attractions of Varenna.
Afterward, we are going to continue our adventure and principal attraction of this friendly tour: Castle of Vezio.
We will walk up to the hill, the road to the castle is steep so it's important to have comfortable sneakers (30 minutes duration circa) with breathtaking views and backgrounds of Varenna and Como Lake. Once we have reached, we are going to discover the inside castle in order to immerge ourselves into its history. And the best way to end this trip is to enjoy the view with a drink and Italian snacks.

The friendly tour is a very worthwhile tour. I was a solo traveller so would have found this quite daunting to do it on my own. Cecilia had a wealth of knowledge and made me feel very welcome from the outset. A very well spent 3 hours.

I loved my walking tour with Ceci! She made me feel very comfortable from the start. We walked through the old town stopping to take pictures along the way (so beautiful!) then took a peaceful scenic path up to the castle. There were zero tourists going up that way - and incredible views; there were steps too which was nice. The castle is such a cool place to visit and I’m happy I had Ceci with me to show me around. We wrapped up our tour with a nice snack/drink at the (affordable!) cafe at the castle, then made our way back to town, stopping at the most beautiful Raku ceramics shop (I had to go inside!). Cecilia is the sweetest most patient person- her love for the region and meeting people is apparent; she also gladly offers tips on the area, and is happy to help visitors with any questions. I didn’t meet the other walking guides but she told me about them, and how they all met. I would definitely recommend this nice tour. Thanks, Ceci!
