The attractions less than an hour from Varese

“Scegliere Varese per le sue bellezze, ma anche per quelle nei dintorni ” Rubrica Turista Fai Da Te

Rubrica Turista Fai Da Te

Oltre ad apprezzare il territorio varesino e le sue eccellenze, il Turista Fai Da Te, soprattutto quello che arriva da lontano, deve sapere che da Varese, in pochissimo tempo e con diversi mezzi (macchina, mezzi pubblici, battelli, persino la bicicletta!), si possono raggiungere molte altre mete di assoluto rilievo internazionale.

Prima fra tutte Milano, dal 1 maggio sede dell’esposizione universale Expo 2015. Da Varese e dall’Hotel Ungheria si raggiunge facilmente in circa un’ora con due linee ferroviarie (Ferrovie Stato e Nord) oltre che con l’autostrada. Milano non è solo sede dell’Expo, ovviamente, ma anch di numerose attrattive come il Duomo, Castello Sforzesco, l’Ultima Cena di Leonardo, la Scala, i Navigli, Brera, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II e molto altro ancora.

886_737px_lago_di_lugano_mappaDa Varese si può fare anche una puntata nella vicina Svizzera, nel Mendrisiotto, passando dal valico di Gaggiolo. Da qui in pochissimo tempo, attraversando Chiasso, è facile arrivare nel cuore delle Valli Lariane, Como, ricca di monumenti storici, fra i quali la stupenda Cattedrale e la Basilica di Sant’Abbondio.

Il viaggio può proseguire anche attraverso la funicolare, per salire al Belvedere di Brunate e poi tornare in territorio varesino con la statale 342 che passa da Olgiate Comasco e Malnate.

Da Mendrisio si può anche scegliere di proseguire in terra svizzera, visitando il famoso baluardo italiano di Campione. Non tutti sanno che oltre al suo Casinò, non devono perdere quel gioiello rappresentato dal Santuario della Madonna dei Ghirli, che si affaccia dominante sul lago.

Per chiudere il cerchio, da Campione, passando per il Ponte di Melide, si arriva a Lugano, con il lungolago che porta alla splendida villa del Parco Ciani. Dalla cittadina svizzera si può salire in funicolare al belvedere del Monte San Salvatore, da cui poi si rientra comodamente a Varese, per il valico di Ponte Tresa, passando per il verde territorio varesino che ospita i laghi di Ghirla e Ganna.

E se ancora non bastasse, ci si può spostare con i battelli dei serivizi di navigazione del Lago Maggiore verso la Svzzera e il Verbano, facendo tappa nelle prestigiose stazioni turistiche di Stresa, con le Isole Borromee, Pallanza, Intra, Luino e Arona.

Tutto questo fa dell’Hotel Ungheria, nel cuore di Varese, la base perfetta per le tue vacanze culturali, sportive e naturali!

Varese city to be discovered

“What to see in Varese?”- Diy Tourist Column

Diy Tourist Column

Varese has a thousand faces, all to be discovered. City liberty taste, exquisitely artistic, is also known as the Garden City, for all the natural beauty that offers, along with the surrounding area.

Varese – Villa Estense e Giardini – Fonte: GPS Varese

From Giardini Estensi that encircle the Town Hall. In the second half of ‘ 700, Francesco III d’Este, Duke of Modena and Governor of Austrian Lombardy, having fallen in love with Varese during one of his trips, he decided to ask in fief to Maria Theresa of Austria. He bought by Tommaso Orrigoni the House, which now houses the municipal administration, and gives the architect Giuseppe Antonio Bianchi in charge of dealing with the creation of the Italian garden, considered among the most beautiful of Lombardy.

Another focal point of Varese that you should visit is the Basilica of San Vittore. It represents, with the Bell Tower and the baptistery of San Giovanni, the religious heart of the city. The current building is the result of different interventions that have ruled during its history, right up to the neoclassical façade construction (between 1788 and 1791) designed by Leopoldo Pollack. The baptistery is the oldest monument of Varese, built in Romanesque style in the 12th and 13th century and dedicated to St. John the Baptist.

Musei Civici Villa Mirabello - Fonte: lagomaggiore.net

Musei Civici Villa Mirabello – Fonte: lagomaggiore.net

For culture and museums lovers, finally, Varese represents the Toyland. You’ll find even hard to choose! Live art in Varese is certainly easier for a tourist who has at his disposal some days … but, with the advice of our column, you will be able to taste all the culture you want in no time. First stage “forced”is The Civic Museums of Villa Mirabello, which in addition to accommodate a valuable archaeological collection related to prehistoric times, preserve testimonies of Roman times and also have a brand new section of the Risorgimento. Of The Civic Museums is also Veratti Hall, whose spaces are dedicated to temporary adn/or permanent exhibitions.

Second stage, particularly suitable for lovers of art tastes less classics, is the Civic Modern and Contemporary Art Museum | Castle of Masnago. The complex, which is the result of several interventions over the centuries, is inserted in the wonderful Mantegazza Park, public parking that is located on the top of Masnago little hill. The Castle houses the civic art collection, with works by leading Lombard artists.

Collezione Permanente Villa Panza - Fonte: Sito FAI

The third and last stage of our “tour de force”, Villa Panza Museum, one of the FAI properties in Varese. Surrounded by a magnificent garden and built in the mid-18th century, the villa is well known worldwide for its famous Panza Collection, contemporary art collection that Giuseppe Panza di Biumo has picked up since the 50 ‘s: displays over 100 works by contemporary artists, as well as an important collection of African and pre-Columbian art.

And if nature is the thing that interests you most and the Giardini Estensi you have bewitched, then maybe you will go crazy know that Varese is considered the “Green Province” par excellence, just thanks to that green heritage that goes from the mountains that surround the lakes that bathe. There are numerous parks and nature reserves scattered in the territory, first among all Regional Parks of The Campo dei Fiori and of Valle del Ticino, as well as the Nature Reserve of Brabbia Swamp and Lake of Biandronno.

Of course here we told only of the most precious jewels of Varese … but there is still a lot to discover …

… and with our Diy Tourist Column you can really design a holiday tailored to your needs!

Collegiate Church is the best Heart Place

In the province of Varese won the Collegiate Church as a Place of the Heart – Diy Tourist Column

Diy Tourist Column

colleggiataThe collegiate church has collected over 8 thousand votes that still have to add paper to be counted at the beginning of 2015. It is positioned to the first place in the province of Varese and the third in the region.

Provisional rankings sees the Church’s Museum at 15th national place Varese. It could mean very for the Collegiata in Castiglione Olona, since most voted sites can access funding to be given.

Although the collegiate church is not an asset of the FAI, the competition launched by the Italian Environment Fund rewards those places that are entered into the hearts of the people and that deserve to be valued most.

Hotel Hungary is pleased to congratulate collegiate friends and neighbours Castiglionesi; and invites you to visit what he considers one of the most precious jewels of our territory.
