Varese holiday apartments - see Italy's beautiful lakes
Picturesque, pre-alpine Varese, in northern Italy, not far from Milan, is full of beautiful villas and castles, and benefits from being within easy reach of Lake Varese as well as Lake Maggiore, Lake Lugano, Lake Orta, and Lake Como. Holiday apartments Varese are a great idea for a relaxing and peaceful summer holiday.
Some of the buildings of note to look out for during your stay in a villa Varese are the Palazzo Estense, Villa Recalcati, the Basilica San Vittore, Villa Panza, and the Torre Campanaria bell tower in the charming Piazza Monte Grappa, the main square of the old town. The centre of Varese is not large, and much of the old town has been pedestrianised. Lovers of Italian food and Italian fashion will feel right at home with a villa Varese - on the Corso Matteotti you will find many famous labels, and the town is simply full of great eateries at all price points.
Here you can also visit the Sacro Monte di Varese, one of nine sacred mountains and pilgrimage sites in Lombardy and Piedmont. The site is home to fourteen chapels, which have been visited by an estimated 60 million pilgrims over the last 300 years, and it is found just north of the town, in the beautiful Regional Park Campo dei Fiori. The park is home to a variety of flora and fauna, and is lovely to walk through. The route around Lake Varese is perfect for cyclists, with dedicated, maintained paths, whereas the other local lakes are better for relaxing.
