Varese is a city and comune in north-western Lombardy.
Varese is situated on seven hills: the San Pedrino Hill, the Giubiano Hill, the Campigli Hill, the Sant'Albino Hill, the Biumo Superiore Hill, Colle di Montalbano (Villa Mirabello) and the Hill of Miogni. The city also looks over Lake Varese.
The city is home to the Sacro Monte di Varese ('the sacred mountain of Varese'), a place of pilgrimage and worship. It is one of the Sacri Monti of Piedmont and Lombardy, included on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
My husband and I are celebrating our 30th marriage anniversary in Lake Como in October. We would like to stay in a beautiful apartment that is near lake walks/hiking, cycling, best restaurants and lots of town life.
