Varese

by EgoAmorMundi Online Now Aug 20, 2012 at 9:14 AM

Ciao,

I'm going to Varese in October, for a week. Actually, It's a studying-program I will attend, but we will have some sparetime, and now I'm searching for "the do's and don'ts in Varese". How about the sights? What should I know about Italian culture and traditions (I will live in a host family, and I know only a few phrases in Italian)? Any restaurants that you would recommend (preferably Italian cuisine)?

Grazie molto!

    One of the must do's is a visit to the Sacro Monte di Varese.
    Not yet added a tip, but I do have pictures:

    Varese is a medium-sized northenr-Italian town, not of particular interest to tourism. However, the surrounding lakes district has a wealth of sightseeing points: just brose destinations in the small towns along the shores of Lago Masggiore (Stresa, Verbania) and Lago de Como (Como, Bellagio etc). Switzerland is only a few kilometers from Varese and has its charms as well (Lago de Lugano). Public transport in the region is good and cheap. Milan is another MUST for a day-trip.

    Pls notice restaurants are rather expensive in Varese area, (much) more than many other places in Italy
    Go where the host family will suggest you
