More Info

Arranged along the shore of Lake Varese, it is a town with very ancient origins, whose past is still little known. Its peculiarities are that it has four independent towns: Armino, Pozzolo, Fignano and Gavirate, as well as a market, whose origin dates back to 1539, which as per tradition continues to be held on Fridays.

Gavirate is the ideal starting point for a nice bike ride to discover the beauties of Lake Varese, 30 km of cycle-pedestrian path that runs along the entire perimeter of the lake, crossing the various villages. To see the Cloister of Voltorre and the Pipa Museum in Gavirate, the ice house in Bardello, the Palude Brabbia in Inarzo, the Isolino Virginia with the Archaeological Museum and the pile-dwelling station in Biandronno, the little church of the Madonnina della Riva in Azzate, the Tower in the center of Bodio. The route can be covered in every season of the year.
Those who do not have bicimunites can also use the rental at the Lido di Gavirate.
There is no shortage of itineraries for hiking along the nature trails that lead to the Bardello Locks or to the Motta d’oro lake.
