You can find us in Varenna, in the neighbourhood of the Ferry landing pier (walk 350m – 4 min) and Varenna-Esino railroad station (walk 550m – 8 min).

From the boat dock to the right a romantic walk way called “Lover’s Lane” leads to the centre. Close to the water, you will find a couple of gelaterie (ice-cream shops) where you can buy ice creams to take away. Just in front of them you will find our floating dock: you cannot miss us!
