“Choose Varese for its beauty, but also for those around” Diy Tourist Column
In addition to appreciating Varese territory and its excellence, the Do-it-yourself Tourist, especially who comes far, has to know that from Varese, in no time and with different vehicles (car, bus, boats, even the bicycle!), he can reach many other major international destinations.
From Varese and Hotel Ungheria you can easily reach Milan in about an hour with two railway lines (State Railways and the North) as well as the motorway. Milan is important for numerous attractions such as the Duomo, the Sforzesco Castle, Leonardo’s last supper, Scala Theatre, the Brera, Navigli, Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery and much more.
From Varese we can also make a bet in the nearby Switzerland, in Mendrisiotto, passing from the pass of Gaggiolo. From here in no time, passing through Chiasso, it is easy to get at the heart of the valleys of Lake Como, the capital Como, rich in historical monuments, including the Cathedral and the Basilica of Sant’Abbondio.
The journey can continue even through the funicular, to go up to the Belvedere in Brunate and then returning in Varese with the highway 342 passes from Olgiate Comasco and Malnate.
From Mendrisio you can also choose to continue in Switzerland, visiting the famous bastion of Italian, Campione. You have to know that in addition to its Casino, must not lose that jewel represented by the sanctuary of Madonna of Ghirli, overlooking the Lake.
To close the circle, from Campione, by the bridge at Melide, you arrive in Lugano, with the promenade that leads to the fantastic villa of Parco Ciani. From Switzerland you can climb in the funicular of Monte San Salvatore, from which then falls comfortably in Varese, from the pass of Ponte Tresa, riding Varese territory, that home the green lakes of Ganna and Ghirla.
And if it’s still not enough, you can move with the boats of the navigation services of Lake Maggiore towards Svizzera and Verbano, stopping in the prestigious tourist location of Stresa, with the Borromee Islands, Pallanza, Intra, Luino and Arona.
All this makes the Hotel Ungheria, in the heart of Varese, the perfect base for your cultural, sporting and natural holidays!
