Villa Monastero Reviews
Personally and honestly - Varenna is the best small town in lake Como. Gorgeous view, cosy cafes )) The park around the Villa Monastero is amazing ! more »
Les jardins sont très beaux avec une vue imprenable sur le lac. Il faut compter 20- 30 min de visite pour 6€ / personne. Nous ne regrettons pas more »The gardens are very beautiful with stunning views of the lake. It takes 20-30 minutes to visit for 6 euros per person. We don't regret
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.
