Preparing your trip to Varese: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

1. The period from May to October is considered the best time to visit Varese. The weather is always fine during this part of the year, so nothing will spoil your plans.
2. There are no large sports centers in the city, but Varese neighborhoods have a well-developed infrastructure that includes 7 golf courses, a horse-riding school, and many other sports complexes.
3. Travelers are recommended to exchange currency in their home countries because local banks and exchange offices have quite a bad exchange rate. When tourists plan to do some shopping, it is better to stock up on paper money in small denominations as this way it will be easier to pay to sellers.
4. Dinner is the main meal of the day for locals, so local restaurants have the most diversified menu in the evening. Breakfasts, in their turn, can even dissatisfy travelers because of their “modesty”. As a rule, local cafes and restaurants offer only coffee and fresh baking in the morning.
5. The so-called “street” cafes and pizzerias are incredibly popular with vacationers. A piece of freshly cooked pizza can cost only 2 euro. The same food will be 5-6 times more expensive even in small restaurants. Copyright
6. Don’t forget to leave tips in local restaurants and cafes. A tip of 10-15% of the total is enough.
7. The line voltage is 220V. All hotels have standards European sockets. Travelers should check all electrical appliances they plan to take for compliance. In case of a need, don’t forget to bring adapters.
One of the most original Varese hotels in terms of design is Atahotel Varese. The aparthotel's spacious rooms are decorated in warm colors, an abundance of beautiful fabrics of light shades … Open
8. Tourists who plan to use public transport should take into consideration several important rules. Use the tailgate to get on the bus and the center gate to get off the bus. Don’t forget to buy tickets in advance. They are available in special kiosks that are located close to every public transport stop.
9. Take a taxi in specially designated areas only or use the telephone to get one. It is virtually impossible to find a free car on streets. Taxis can be somewhat more expensive at night.
10. Despite the fact that Varese is considered a safe city, it is still better not to explore it late at night or head to an independent journey to the distant parts of the city.
11. Local people are very friendly and communicative. They are always glad to help and tell how to get to some landmark or what restaurant to choose for a dinner.
