What you'll do

The first chapel is the starting point of our ascent to the Sanctuary of Sacro Monte. Along the route of about 1 hour, we will stop to browse inside the chapels and take photographs of the magnificent landscape. At an altitude of 880 m above sea level we will reach the village of St. Maria del Monte, walk the covered streets, enter the Sanctuary, the permanent Nativity Scene, the Monastery courtyard and take a look at the beautiful panorama towards the lakes. Finally, we will stop at the local historian "Al Borducan" to taste the unique and inimitable Elixir, a typical liqueur extracted from the herbs of Campo dei Fiori. At your choice the descent, on foot, bus or funicular (depending on its availability and timetable). If you want to spend more time visiting the village and its museums, you will return down on your own.

Tiziana

I am Tiziana, lover of nature and the territory of Varese, in which I was born. I'll take you on a walk, in the "Sacro Monte" of Varese, a mandatory stop for those who come in the area. We'll pass through the 14 chapels of great artistic and architectural importance that lead to the Sanctuary of Santa Maria del Monte, immersing ourselves in the deep sense of peace that you breathe and appreciating the beautiful landscape with views of the lakes. I can't wait to bring you to this enchanted place and you'll understand why this is the favorite destination of us, who live in the "Garden City".
