The availability of structures is wide, with a large number of beds. Varese and its territory have almost 700 structures among hotel and non-hotel, with around 25,000 total beds. The offer ranges from equipped hotels to farmhouses and B&Bs, able to satisfy any need dictated by a pleasure visit, a business trip or a stay for sporting purposes.

CONNECTIONS
Varese is such an easy destination to reach
  • Varese is in a strategic position, a few kilometres from Milan and the international
    airport of Malpensa. This is Italy’s second busiest airport in terms of passenger traffic and the headquarters of various airlines.
  • Varese’s province is connected by three major arterial roads. The A8, Italy’s fi rst motorway, connects Varese to Milan.  The A9 motorway connects this province to Como and Switzerland, whereas the A26 motorway connects this area to Piedmont.
  • Public transportation includes suburban buses, which reach any destination within
    the province, and urban buses to get to major cities, such as Varese, Bust Arsizio and
    Gallarate.
  • Thanks to the presence of two railway lines – Ferrovie Nord Milano and Ferrovie dello
    Stato, which work in synergy as Trenord – visitors can reach Varese from Milan and
    Piedmont by train. They can even reach Malpensa airport and go to Switzerland by
    taking the Malpensa Express and TILO.
  • Visitors can reach the province even via the lake, thanks to the boat and ferry
    transport service connecting Piedmont to towns like Laveno, Luino, and Angera on the
    Lombard coast.
