Centre based cycling holiday in Varese

Description

This weekend cycling holiday to Varese in Northern Italian Lakes will let you the experience of these lakes and mountains by bike. Varese is a pleasant hillside town located in Lombardy, close to Piedmont and to Switzerland, in the foothills of the Swiss-Italian Pre-Alps, a 10-minute ride from Milan Malpensa airport. In just a few days you can see the best views and the hidden gems that our region has to offer from Lake Maggiore to Lake Lugano. Non-riding partners are welcomed along to share the experience with you.

Varese is very well-known for amatour cycling, having organised the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships in 2018 and it also hosts the annual UCI Gran Fondo World Series Tre Valli Varesine in October. The race course winds up and down among the Lakes of Lugano, Maggiore and Varese  with some tough climbs in between.

The Shrine of Madonna del Ghisallo at Magreglio, between the two branches of Lake Como, is a must for every cyclist. It's a one-day ride from Varese.

You can ride through wooded valleys, narrow climbs, fast descends without forgetting to enjoy what our area has to offer: ancient villas, parks, churches and hermitages which were built from Sixteenth Century to the Nineteenth Century, exibitions, history, art, culture.

In particular we suggest  to visit Villa della Porta Bozzolo at Casalzuigno, Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso on Lake Maggiore and Sacro Monte of Varese (historic site on the UNESCO Worldwide Heritage List).
