Varenna - Lago di Como

Bought again a day-ticket for the boats,
this time went to Varenna
Varenna is located on the right bank of Lake Como
. Pedestrian way to the town centre
. Beautiful rowning boat
. Gallery of Franca Carzaniga
.One of the many doors of Varenna
. Extraordinary balcony connecting 2 buildings
.
Lunch at Vecchia Varenna
Sliced eggplant with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese
.
Not on the menu,
but asked if it was possible to have
a grilled lavarello
- yes, it was!
.
View of lake Como
from the restaurant
.
After lunch it was time to walk
up to the hill
to Castello di Vezio
.
Coble stoned way took up there,
first it was quite easy,
but as the people coming down told
it was getting steeper and steeper
- and again the weather was around 40C
.
Castello di Vezio
.
Took another way down
(shoudn't have done that!)
.
Steep, narrow, loose pebbles...
- quite an experience with flip-flops on
.
Passed this shrine on the way down
- someone had brought flowers there recently!
.

Almost made it,
still some meters to go
.

Varenna down there on the right corner
.
In Varenna had a threat
pistacchio & stracciatella home-made ice-cream
- lovely!
.
Town of Varenna
& Castello di Vezio
on the top of the hill
.
Couple of days on Lake Como
is not enought to explore the whole area of the lake,
asked if the hotel would have a free room for a couple of more days
- it was possible, so will stay a bit longer

Breakfast lounge of Borgo le terrazze
