Varenna is a comune (municipality) on Lake Como in the Province of Lecco in the Italian region Lombardy, located about 60km north of Milan and about 20km northwest of Lecco.Varenna was founded by local fishermen in 769, and was later allied of the commune of Milan. Get out of town with these interesting Varenna side-trips: Tremezzina (Villa del Balbianello & Villa Carlotta), Bellagio (i Giardini di Villa Melzi, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more) and Spiaggia Tranquilla (in Dorio). There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Villa Monastero, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, go for a walk through Green Way dei Patriarchi, and step into the grandiose world of Castello di Vezio.
