I traveled alone and stayed in Fio&Gio only one night. It had a good location, but if you arrive Varenna from pier or train station, you have to walk for awhile to get there. I lived in a single room facing the street, one room in a 2-bedroom home in a apartment building. The noise outside can't be stopped by... More

This place is wonderful! Very spacious room, there is a single bedroom next door, a little patio room, and a bathroom connected. This would be perfect for a few people to share a large area (or a family). The room I had was a double, I could make tea for free in the patio room. The bathroom is fairly large,... More

With b&b it's always important to clearly understand what we are talking about Here it's not an apartment rental because there is 1 other room on the same floor that shares the bathroom = not a problem since it's only 1 room. You do not have a kitchen, just a microwave. Rooms are clean, big enough, a little bit old... More

Nice bed and breakfast in center of town. Comfortable stay. Rooms are big and tidy. Shared bathroom is not a problem, since it is shared with only one other room and the two rooms are in a separate section behind lockable doors. Microwave in a small room with tables and chairs available for use to two adjoining bedrooms. Top terrace... More

This is a lovely hotel right near the main square of Varenna, directly across the street from a grocer. The room we had was large and faced the street, which made for a bit of noise, but we enjoyed the sounds of Italy...until the Church bells woke us in terror in the morning! So, be aware of that. Plus, the... More

We stayed here for two nights in June and had the entire upper floor (a double, a single, dining space and bathroom) to ourselves. As others have mentioned, the highlight is the rooftop terrace, with a view you would normally pay a lot more for. A few points of information: the proprietress does not live on the premises, so you... More

Please be clear in your understanding, Fio and Gio is, I believe, best described as essentially a nice hostel with, in our case, a small bedroom and a good ensuite. It is, however, not apartment accommodation as we were led to believe from an on-line site we booked our seven nights stay through. One of the very popular and well-known... More

Our stay at Fio & Gio was wonderful. The highlight was the roof top terrace that had a spectacular view of Lake Como. There was a large table and chairs there and we had a beautiful picnic watching the sunset. The rooms were cute and clean. It was also very quiet. It was a 10 minute walk to the ferry... More

The selling point of this B&B, besides the very reasonable price, is the amazing view terrace, which is just as amazing as it looks in all the pictures. Also, everyone staying there takes advantage of it, so in the evenings it was nice to talk to the other guests. I only met the owner when I checked in and did... More

My husband and I stayed here for only one night of our trip but the room was spectacular at a really great price. Christina was very responsive to our emails and even offered to pick us up at the train station when we arrived (although it was only about a 10 minute walk). We took her up on this offer... More
