Villa Monastero

Villa Monastero Review

By ferry from Bellagio it's a quick trip across the lake to Varenna. The principal sight here is the spellbinding garden of the Villa Monastero, which, as its name suggests, was originally a monastery. Now it's an international science and convention center. Guided tours can be booked.
