Varese City tour - HALF DAY
Together with our travel specialist, a true connoisseur of local places and experiences, you will discover and experience the city of Varese, living like a local.
Half-day walk (morning or afternoon) through the streets of the historic city-center, discovering its artistic and historical beauties and the wonderful gardens thanks to which Varese is known as the “Garde City”. You will be fascinated by its prestigious buildings of various eras and styles, by the fully arcaded alleys, by the historic shops, by the secret courtyards and by the magnificence of its squares, the civic tower, the bell tower and the Baptistery.
Gourmet stop to taste a local specialty such as the authentic Buosino (coffee and chocolate drink) or Dolce Varese or Brutti e Buoni.
You could not to leave Varese without first taking a photo at Palazzo Estense erected between 1766 and 1771 at the behest of the Duke of Modena Francesco III d'Este who, having obtained the lordship of Varese from Maria Theresa of Austria, was eager to build his own summer-autumn residence. Thanks to its majesty and the fantastic Italian gardens that surround it, Palazzo Estense earned Varese the nickname of "Versailles of Milan", given to it by Stendhal.
