Varese is one of Italy’s most beautiful provinces with spectacular and varied countryside. The colours of the lakes, rivers and woodland add to the area’s unique charm throughout the year, and create a particularly eye-catching display from spring to autumn.
Favourably positioned at the start of several alpine valleys and the two major routes to the Simplon and Gotthard Passes, the city is easily accessible from many directions, even by air as Milan-Malpensa airport is only thirty minutes away.
In addition to being a popular holiday destination with stunning scenery, the Varese area also offers a wide range of accommodation, including hotels, holiday homes, campsites, agritourism centres, and bed and breakfasts, and an infinite choice of sports and leisure facilities to cater to everyone.
Fascinating and full of charm, Varese really has something for everyone from a quiet day by the lake, discovering a village’s artistic heritage, holidays on a farm and pilgrimages to cultural days out exploring villas, gardens and monuments, or simply walking or going for a bike ride.
