“Half day local excursion.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

A pleasant short trip to the edge of the city. Use local bus and walk up to the church and restaurant. Great views.

“Sunday evening walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

The best views over the town of Varese and the surrounding countryside can be seen from Sacra Monte on a summer's evening - drive half way, or catch the bus from town. Bribe the children with an ice cream while you have a prosecco from the many restaurant and café terraces.

“for views only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

theres 14 chapels apparently but we only found two at the very top, the others must be further down. there were more bars (three) at the top than chapels! the best thing was the museum there and the general views.
