Tourism Varese, tips for visiting Lombardy

Tourism Varese. With the variety of twelve distinct provinces, Tourism in Lombardy proposes many natural and cultural attractions. Visiting Varese means to admire its villas, gardens and reserves. 


This territory spreads over the Alps' foothills and features a vast, green scenery garnished by numerous lakes such as Lake Varese, Maggiore and Ceresio, plus rivers and streams like the Olona, Ticino and Tresa, ideal for outdoor tourism. The valleys of Veddasca, Dumentina, Valcuvia, Valtravaglia, Valganna, Marchirolo and Valceresio are but only a few reasons for visiting Varese. 


Seeking for a different kind of tourism in Lombardy? The four Unesco World Heritage Sites found here are certainly worth visiting: San Giorgio, an extraordinary vestige of multiple evolutionary periods in planet Earth, the Sacro Monte, one of Piedmont and our Region's nine calvaries with fourteen devotional chapels that lead to the Sanctuary, the ancient settlements at the Stilted Houses of the Alpine Range, and the Castrum of Castelseprio, an authentic treasure that guards some of the oldest, most interesting cave paintings in Northern Italy.
