    • Evenings in Griante

      Cadenabbia di Griante Jan 11, 2015 at 5:42 AM

      We are hoping to travel to Lake Como this summer and are looking at the possibility of staying in Griante. Is there enough buzz in the evenings. We do not look for entertainment but like to potter about, perhaps a few shops and of course spend the evening dining but do like a 'buzz' and people watching. Is this typical of this area.

      Feeding the planet

      Milano Jan 27, 2015 at 8:36 AM

      We would like to understand before making plans to travel for the EXPO in milan : Is that international event will be dealing with the industry of food and other feeding question ? or will it be like the previous 2000 (Hannover) and 1967(Montreal) which mean an international meeting of culture in order to learn about the countries and to hear also their traditional music etc.. That is a big difference and it will be important to know the facts before deciding !

    • Where to stay?

      by AnneandMissi Online Now Apr 9, 2014 at 12:17 AM

      Initially looked at Como. Having second thoughts. We have 4 nights (minus jet lag only 3 days to explore.) We are considering Varenna.
      We would be catching a train from Malpensa directly to Como/Varenna after a long haul from Australia. What are the pros/cons of choosing Varenna?
      A major "thing to do is" the Berlina Express for one day.
      Advice welcomed. Any advice.

    • Volterra not Varenna

      by dargo Online Now Nov 10, 2013 at 8:33 PM

      Sorry my earlier question was wrong !! We are travelling from Monte Carlo to Volterra (and not to Varenna).
      We would catch the train from Monte Carlo and then rent a car from a town near volterra (I understand there is no train station there).

      I must say, that I absolutely loved Varenna and we stayed in the Hotel du Lac which was in a great location and we had a room with a most maginifcent view.

      Anyway, this time we are off to Volterra !!

      thank you

      by dargo Online Now Nov 10, 2013 at 8:19 PM

      We will be travelling from Monte Carlo to Varenna (staying there about 10 days). Rather than renting a car in Monte Carlo and dropping it off in Milan, I thought to catch a train to a town near Varenna and then rent a car. We would plan to arrive in Varenna late in the day. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

    • Milan-Varenna transportation

      by Erika77 Online Now Sep 1, 2009 at 8:29 AM

      Hello and help, prego!

      My husband and I will be arriving in Milan Thursday evening, planning to spend a long weekend in Varenna. Our flight will arrive in Milan well before the last bus leaves and a few minutes before the last train departs for Varenna.

      We've got a B&B already booked for the night at Lake Como and really don't want to have to spend the night in Milan.

      How much would a taxi cost to take us to Menaggio? Are there any other ways we might be able to get there?

      Thank you very much for your time and response.

    • recommended restuarant in Varenna

      by MimiPawPaw Online Now Dec 27, 2007 at 11:01 AM

      We will arrive in Varenna on Saturday, March 22, 2008, and would like recommendations of good, reasonably priced restuarants or bistros or cafes in the vicinity of the Duomo. We would like to walk to the restuarant and to have a place we could call "home" for the 4 days, 3 nights we are there. We enjoy very much having a familiar place to eat while we are on trips.

      We enjoy healthy dishes made with fresh vegetables and local ingredients. The simplier the better. We would like to have a selection of main courses in the 5-10 euro range, if possible.

      We really appreciate any suggestions.

      Also, we would like to locate a grocer.

      Thank you very much.
