This very pretty church is located in the main square of the high part of the city and it is a great landmark of this lovely square. Fairly simple inside but with some interesting features

There are a great number of churches so nice to see one with artwork from a variety of times and showing differing styles. It's not going to take ages to visit but make the effort and give it a few minutes.

The church tower out stands over the rest of the buildings in the town. The interior was modest and simplistic. In front of the church there is a spacious (as for local standards ) square with a few restaurants.

In the centre of Varenna stands this lovely old church. It's a little plain but still worth a visit. It has a quaint charm and once inside a moody ambiance.

This church was beautiful and simple but stood out due to the beautiful golden frescoes preserved by glas.

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

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.
