Varese is one of the largest cities in Lombardy and the capital of the province.
Situated to the east of Lake Maggiore, Varese is nicknamed the “garden city” because of its numerous parks and gardens.
Varese is a place between tradition and modernity. The historical centre with its arcade-lined pedestrian walkways has retained its original character, but at the same time modern buildings and many chic shops and cafés characterise the townscape.
“A landmark of Varese is the Basilica of San Vittore with its 14th century church tower and baptistery.”
