The town of Varese is situated in the northern part of Italy, on A8 highway which leads from Milano in direction of Lago Maggiore.
When visiting Varese the Sanctuary of Sacro Monte is a must see. Since ages, the Sacro Monte has been a sacred place for all Lombard people. Its historic-religious importance originates from the first half of the 15th century when Sant' Ambrogio set up the first altar on the mountain in thanks of his victory over the Arians.
On the picture you can see the magnificient Palazzo Estense and its carefully designed huge and very beautiful park.
