Beat Baggage Fees

For short sojourns, hand luggage to go in the cabin is the way forward; so far, no airline charges for this. It'll save you hanging out at the baggage carousel too. In most cases, you do get a free 10kg hand luggage allowance, so take full advantage. Don't forget to check your luggage on your scales before you leave home!

Cheap Hire Car

If you've got a car at home, it's easy to assume you'll need one on holiday, yet sometimes it becomes an expensive, unused hindrance. Luckily by staying in Casa Varenna, hire cars are not a necessity. If travelling with Ryanair, catch the airport bus to Bergamo train station or if flying with easyJet, Milan/Como train station ~ then catch a train to Varenna, probably changing in Lecco.
