Italy: Lake Como: Pizza at Varenna Esino
A good way to start your Lake Como tour is from Varenna Esino. A glimpse of the Alps will energise you for the day.
The lovely little railway station will steal your heart. Catch a train in the morning from the Milano Centrale railway station to reach Varenna Esino. On 18th of March, I took a second class train from Milan at 8:20 in the morning and reached Varenna Esino at 9:23 AM. Booking of ticket is easily possible through Rail Europe website – www.raileurope.com.
Although Lake Como covers so many spots but I chose only three – Varenna, Menaggio and Belaggio. Varenna Esino railway station to the Verenna Esino ferry point is a pleasant four hundred meters walk but before starting my journey I decided to have my breakfast and therefore I was searching for a food stall nearby. In between the platform and the exit to the rail station I found one small food and wine shop run all by three ladies. I was very hungry and ordered a pizza. The taste of the pizza was so good that by now I have told almost all my friends and family members about that Varenna Pizza. The food and wine shop had a lovely neat and clean dining area with a television on the wall. Eating such a tasty pizza and watching a romantic Italian song on the television on a calm & refreshing Lake Como morning was really amazing. The bill was perfect too.
