The city of Varese is also called the garden city due to its countless parks and green areas. Varese is just 15 km far from Gavirate. It can be reached by car, by bus or even by train.
In Varese or nearby you will be able to visit the Giardini Estense with the archeological museum of Villa Mirabello , Villa Milus, the Villa Ponte park, Villa Panza (property of FAI) and of course the Sacro Monte (which belongs to the Unesco heritage).
If you wanted to taste a gourmet snack or go shopping, the center of Varese is the best place to go. It offers delightful bakeries and the best of fashion stores.
We highly suggest you to try and taste a local gourmet selection of Varese flavours : Buosino is a hot drink, made of coffee, chocolate, cream and milk; at the Buosini bakery; or even a slice of Dolce Varese, a great cake that you will find at the Pasticceria Zamberletti. Or maybe enjoy a typical Italian happy hour with a nice glass of Aperitivo Apollo at the Pirola Bar.
