Only takes a few minutes to visit this church, so stop in,. Was built in the 14th century. Not spectacular, but if you understand and love history, it is very interesting.

The church tower is easily recognizable when approaching Varenna by boat and it stands out among the pastel colored houses and it looks better that way. Up close the Piazza San Giorgio is too small for you to step back to get a good perspective....More

This church sits on one side of a beautiful piazza. It is just incredibly beautiful with a tall bell tower. Several really good restaurants are in the square as well. From the top of the steps leading to the church the town is within view...More

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.
