We were in Varenna during Holy Week and attended services at this beautiful church. I really wished I could understand Italian.

San Giorgio was the nicest church in Varenna, If you only have time for one church. Then visit this one. Beautiful inside.

Ok it is small, but being ancient makes it worthwhile. I liked the sun dial time clock outside. Light a candle and say a prayer.

Small local church located on the San Giorgio Piazza. Well restored, offers mass in English during the summer months.

We popped in to look around here on a quick trip to Varenna. Beautiful old church. We watched a wedding party arrive from the square opposite while having lunch too.

Also, you could contact the church or Varenna and ask. There is a monastery down the street a short ways on the lake which would be a beautiful venue.
