Varenna Hotel alternatives
My husband and I are flying into Milan August 31 for 11 day trip to Italy. It will be his first trip to Italy, my first trip to the lake region. We plan to stay in the lake region for 3 nights. A friend suggested a small town in Lake Lugano as it is not so overrun by tourists. We like to walk, run, hike, shop, eat and drink well. Varenna looks beautiful but I dont want to be around Rick Steve's travellers while in Europe.
Planning a 3-day stay in Varena, July No car, train travel only. We enjoyed our stay at the Orange House. It is an easy walk from the train station and close to the ferry. We stayed in the upstairs room with an ensuite bathroom. The downstairs room has a private bathroom across the hall.
Northern Italy's seductively beautiful lakes district — in the shadow of the Alps — seems heaven-sent for communing with nature. Though just an hour north of Milan, this area feels a world away from the business and bustle of Italy's second city. In this romantic region, wistful 19th-century villas are overgrown with old vines that seem to ache with stories to tell. Stunted palm trees appear to be held against their will in this northern location. And vistas are made-to-order for poets.
Heading up to Varenna for 3 nights in July after 4 nights in Moterosso. Looking for some hotel recommendations for Varenna.

Varenna Hotels and Places to Stay
We stayed here based on Rick Steves' guide book. - Northern Italy's seductively beautiful lakes district — in the shadow of the Alps — seems heaven-sent for communing with nature. Though just an hour north of Milan, this area feels a world away from the business and bustle of Italy's second city.
We stayed in Casa Rossa annex building to the hotel for 4nights. We had 3 rooms for me, and my sons and one's girlfriend. The rooms were clean and modern. Each room had a baloney and beautiful view of Lake Como. A quiet and serene location on Lake Como, yet close to Bellagio and other mid-lake towns.
I wanted to stay at Hotel du Lac or another 4 Star Hotel in Varenna when I saw that I can stay cheaper at a lovely hotel in Como which is more highly rated, the Palace hotel. Keeping this in mind, would I be better off staying in Varenna for the proximity to the train station or should we stay somewhere in Como. Any alternatives are appreciated. The towns are not the same. Varenna is smaller, and to my mind more charming, and the view from the hotel terrace more beautiful, as you're closer to Switzerland. Some of your question needs review, as I'm not sure whether this is your first or last stop in Italy and whether you need to be closer to the airport before departing. Both towns are served by train.
