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.

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.

Great view, not too far from the city! You can feel a bit more of the nature, and have a good walk to enjoy better the atmosphere of it. Would go again.

This is not a place to drive miles for, but if you pass by it's nice to take a look. Great view from the top of the mountain and beautiful little church.
