Enjoy the nature, history, and sites of Villa Monastero. Walk through a botanical garden stretching almost 2 km (1.24 mi) along the lakefront from Varenna to Fiumelatte. See the magnolia trees, agave plants, citrus trees, and many rare tree species both native and exotic. There is a small coffee shop in the garden, so you can enjoy a drink while you walk the trails, admiring the statues and sculptures. Stop by the House Museum and walk through the 14 rooms furnished to give you the experience and decor of past styles. This is also home to a convention center where many workshops and cultural events are held. Use our Varenna visit site to arrange your visit to Villa Monastero and other attractions in Varenna.

Villa Monastero reviews
The gardens here are very well kept and are worth the visit. We spent 2 hours just enjoying the lake view and garden setting.

The place with its flowering garden enhanced with spectacular views of Lake Como makes people feel really happy. In my opinion it is must see on the Como cruise. You just have to take a stop in Varenna and take a short walk. It's really worth visiting for its beauty.
Place is amazing, so beautiful and the views from the villa is outstanding got some pics to show on the sunny day when we went. Loved every minute.
