Travel Guide to Varese, Italy

Varese is a picturesque province that attracts travellers by its amazing alpine valleys and mountain lakes. The resort offers to its guests multiple walking routes, many of which are intended for a stay of several days. This place will be interesting to not only mountain climbers, but also to ordinary travellers as well and anyone else who is indifferent to beautiful corners of nature. You will be able to walk through untouched woods, walk along the shores of most beautiful mountain lakes and see endless valleys that look like pictures from fairy tales.
The city is also full of different cultural places of interest. Among them such places as Castello Estense are definitely worth mentioning. Don’t forget to visit Sacro Monte sanctuary, from which was started “cross procession”. It ends at the beginning of the hill on which stands Santa Maria del Monte Church. These religious sights are considered the most precious ones in whole country. Each year thousands of pilgrims come here to kneel in front of great shrines.
Not far away from the church is located a small picturesque village that still keeps several houses built during medieval times. While walking on narrow streets you can see many shops and outlets on your way where you can buy memorable souvenirs created by local masters.
There are several attractive villas on the territory of the city. Each villa has its own cultural significance. For example, Villa Mirabello is now the home for the Archeological Museum that exhibits a collection of pictures created by famous Italian masters. You will find another great collection of art in another museum located in the museum in Villa Menafoglio Litta Panza. Sport lovers should go to golf fields (there are 7 high-class golf fields in Varese) or spend some nice time in hippodrome, where they can learn how to ride a horse, or play basketball on one of several special areas. In case you prefer water sports, then you should go to Varese Lake where traditionally take place yacht regatta and cutter rides.
