Cruise and Dinner on Lake Como from Varenna

2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Make your way to the Varenna taxiboat dock, where this tour begins, then board a sightseeing boat for a sunset cruise. The captain will point out local landmarks throughout the cruise, as you pass lakeside mansions such as the Villa del Balbianello, Villa Carlotta, and Villa Melzi, and take in views across the forested hills to the Italian Alps.

    After sunset, you’ll disembark in Varenna and walk to a nearby waterside restaurant, where a table will be waiting for you. Sip a welcome glass of wine, then enjoy a leisurely Italian dinner with appetizer, first-course, main course, and dessert. The fixed menu changes with the season, but can include local meat or fish, and a vegetarian option is always available. A recent menu began with dry salted beef from Valtellina, risotto with a creamy Taleggio and herb sauce, truffle and chestnut-stuffed chicken, and an Italian sweet.

    This tour concludes at the restaurant, which is close to the public ferry dock, water taxis, and transport options.
