          Spaghetti with duck ragu and porcini mushrooms plus a spritz. Delicious.

          Even in rainy October, this is a beautiful place to stay. The gardens are a delight, nothing blooming now but beautiful foliage in reds and yellows.

          Such a beautiful, historical villa with magnificent grounds and views of lake. The marble staircase is breathtaking! Our street-side room was very nice with a huge bathroom. No air conditioning but the nights are a little cooler and the fan made it comfortable sleeping. With the windows open, however, you hear the street noise; the garbage truck woke us up at 5:15 one morning. The breakfast was ok; not that much selection; lovely patio to enjoy the view. The walk from the train station is at the far end of town and up a hill. There is no one at the train station and no taxie. The wonderful girls at the front desk were always so helpful. The stay here is all about the beauty of this historical villa; walking the paths through the gardens along the lake are magical; we loved it! The town of Varenna has such an intimate, local atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again.
          (TIP: For a room with a view, make reservations months ahead of time. We tried two months ahead and they weren't available.)

          What a stroke of luck. When we arrived at Villa Cipressi we were very tired from hiking on the other side of the lake in the mountains near Breglia (about 25 minutes from Menaggio). We had missed our bus, just caught a ferry and it was raining as we approached Varenna...a tough day.

          When we got to the reception desk we were told there was a problem with our room but that they would take care of us. We later learned a guest decided to stay an extra day and our room was made unavailable. The did take care of us and then some. On the property in their large and beautiful garden there is one freestanding cottage called Suite Villa Magnolia ( It is a magnificent, large, high ceiling one room building directly on the shore of Lake Como. It has a large bathroom with a walk-in shower.
          As I said, we really got lucky.

          The staff at Villa Cipressi were great and very helpful throughout our two night stay.

          Our only disappointment was that breakfast was just OK and showed little creativity. Also, the breakfast staff was somewhat inattentive (dirty plates allowed to stay on tables for too long and buffet food trays not refilled promptly).

          Overall...a wonderful experience.

          Started the day with a relaxing breakfast at Princi bakery. Enjoyed watching the locals belly up to the coffee bar and chug their cafe' or espresso and be gone 30 seconds later. No to go cups. I needed 2-3 cappuccinos just to have the same quantity we do in the States. We learned from our guide that no self-respecting …

          ... about 1 hour on the boat. There is residential along the shoreline and half way up the mountain most of the way around the lake, the further we get away from Como although it begins to thin out and clear townships can be seen.
          Menaggio is, like all the other towns, a holiday destination and at this time of year most of the places are closed. We find somewhere to have lunch and then spend the afternoon wandering through the alleyways ...
