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
Gorgeous gardens. The house is also lovely but not as beautiful as the grounds and the view. We enjoyed the citrus grove and visiting the cafe.

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

This place is magic and amazing and it really deserves a visit. You must take to enter to visit the botanical garden but the price is worth the visit. I have never seen so many trees and so beautiful. The view on the lake The view on the lake is speechless and leaves you with a sense of greatness. The town as well as nice and you take amazing pictures all around the lake. I really recommend this visit
Not Great...... We asked for Museum tickets but were given Garden only tickets. When we asked at museum entrance we were told we needed to go back to the entrance. NOT WORTH THE TRECK. There is a toilet beside the coffee shop. It was filthy. You would think something as simple as basic toilet cleaning would be done. The gardens are beautiful but then there are many beautiful places in the area. Definitely not worth the money.
