A hop skip and a boat ride away another gem, Varenna: This charming and quaint little town, is the place to go for relaxation. Unlike, Bellagio, which is full of activity and many shops, Varenna is the exact opposite. Take a stroll around and check out the ancient Castello di Vezio for the best view of the community and lake. After, walk over to the Piazza San Giorgio, grab lunch at an alimentari and enjoy a picnic along the waterfront.
