Hotel Royal Victoria
Varenna, Lake Como, Italy
The elegance and romance of a 19th century building and the charm of the enchanting Lake of Como in a suggestive medieval hamlet, where history, culture, art and nature are all. The hotel Royal Victoria offers a distinct special experience that will be able to impress an attentive traveler who wishes to live relaxing moments on the shores of one of the most fascinating lakes.
A structure that has seen the passage of important characters. A tribute to Queen Victoria of England who stayed right here, in the year 1838, when the old filanda became a hotel, leaving her name as indelible memory of her visit.
It is said that Charles Gounod, famous musician and composer, was inspired by the contemplation of sunsets on the lake from one of the hotel’s rooms.
An important restoration work, in cooperation with the Superintendence for the architectural and landscape heritage of Milan, has given back the right value to the elegance and the charm that distinguish our rooms since the nineteenth century.
