Spent two nights at this bed and breakfast. Got the room with a view of the lake. There is also a small terrace with the view where we enjoyed a glass of wine and some cheese before going out to dinner. Room was clean and had been serviced each day. Good value for staying in Varenna if you don't require...

Someone posted that the B&B is exactly as pictured and it is but even better. The 2 tables on the terrace as well as the terrace are larger than pictured. We enjoyed our wine and juice on the terrace. Folks needs to know that there is not lift and you do have to haul your bags up 2 flights. Also...

Had a wonderful stay at Fio & Gio. It's not too bad of a walk from the train station if you don't have too much luggage, it's about 10 - 15 minutes at a moderate pace. I met Marco at check-in and he was very friendly and helpful. He gave me tips on places to see and restaurants to try....

I had a wonderful, if short, stay at Fio & Gio. The apartment is exactly as the photos show, spacious with an incredible view from the terrace. Varenna is a lovely and relaxing place to stay on Lake Como. Marco even picked me up from the train station in the rain and lent me an umbrella for the stay. They...

I had a simple but lovely room with a private bathroom and a stellar view of Lake Como. The room was clean and comfortable with a large bathroom. The advantages of staying at this particular place are 1. great value for the money - room is simple but very clean and comfortable and very fairly priced, and 2. absolutely outstanding...

We got a double room at Fio and Gio at the last minute. Greta, who checked us in, was very nice. The room was just ok but it was inexpensive and we were happy to find it at the last minute. However, it was extremely NOISY very late into the night. We had a room facing the street. A group...

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...

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,...

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...

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...
