"Arona" Arona by croisbeauty

Arona Travel Guide: 27 reviews and 74 photos


Arona is situated close to Castelleto Ticino, a small town nearby Varese where I often sleep if there is no vaccancy in Varese hotels. During my last bussines trip to Varese, in mid-July 2005, I stayed there for whole weekend having enough time to explore nearby Arona.
The very first thing you see when approaching to Arona is the huge castle of Angera, small town which is situated right opposite to Arona. The castle of Angera is one of the best preserved mediaval castles in Italy and never in its history have suffered of any kind of destroying. Today it houses an interesting Museo della Bambola with a stunning collection of dolls, toys and miniature furniture.
