Foto Varese: Estensi Gardens
The Estensi Gardens and the Estensi Palace, close to the city centre, are a main Varese attraction: the complex was the summer resort of Francis III d'Este. Varese was actually considered to be a pleasant rural town in Lombardy, where aristocracy built stately homes and luscious gardens.
The Bernascone or St. Vittore Basilica bell-tower
Foto Varese: The Bernascone or St. Vittore Basilica bell-tower
View of the St. Vittore Basilica bell-tower, colloquially known as "Bernascone", after the name of the architect who projected it in the 17th century. It is a remarkable Baroque work featuring many flourishing decorations and patterns. The rosy color was typical of the late baroque age.
