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!
Does anyone know where I can purchase these great shoes made by varese imported from Italy. I have been buying them for years and as of a year or 2 ago The people in Toronto where I have been buying them have not been able to get them. They are black with a small design around the area where you put the laces and they have a heal not extreme but they look like mens dancing shoes and everyone that sees them likes them. Please help I take size 42 european sizes.
We will be staying in Varese from 30 April - 5 May. At present I am planning trips to the lakes and choose restaurants for lunch and dinner. Any tips on beautiful churches, good (classical) music performances, outstandig restaurants or oddball activities would be most appreciated!
Hi We're staying at Baveno and would like to drive to Lake Lugano avoiding Switzerland [simple because we don't want to pay the annual road tax, which is expensive]. Are there any boats from the Italian side of Lake Lugano which we could take a trip on - website is a bit inconclusive. Any ideas on routes etc greatly appreciated
Bongiorno, We are seeking accomodation in Saronno near the express train station, and there are a few places that we've found on the internet, but not a single one of them has any traveler-reviews on VT or tripadvisor (or anywhere else that I've discovered). So we have no idea if they are clean, if the beds are comfortable, etc. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of the places in Saronno? We see there is a Villa Sogno (B&B), Hotel Cyrano, Hotel Mercurio, Albergo Motel Pioppeto, Albergo Principe, and a few others. If we end up staying in Saronno, I will have to add a VT travel page for it (there are none!). Thanks, Grazie! Susan
Can anyone give me some advice? We are visiting Milan in late December and am thinking of spending a few nights in Varese at the Porro Pirelli. We will hire a car and just wondering what the driving conditions will be like? Is heavy snow likely? I don't know much about the area, so any advice would be warmly received.
Is it true that near Varese is a place called Fox Town shopping where there are name brand items at discounted prices? If yes, how long is the ride from Varese and is it worth it for shopping?Thank you
Can someone please send me the actual web site address for this hotel? Thank you
We are thinking of spending a last night at the First Hotel near Malpensa airport. It looks decent on the web site and they have transportation to pick up and drop off for flights. Question is what I have read is that the hotel food is not good. Does anyone know of a decent restaurant to walk to from this hotel that is kind of local. Thanks-
