The name of the Garden City derives above all from the vocation as a tourist destination that Varese has already earned since the end of the nineteenth century. The Estense Palace, the grand summer residence of Federico II d’Este, is a brilliant example of its beauty. Its splendid gardens, now a public park like many other green areas in the city, are waiting to be discovered.

The shopping and meeting centre is Corso Matteotti, which has always been a street of shops and clubs with its characteristic arcades, even today a destination for an afternoon stroll or for an evening out.

Gallarate has a long history that begins in pre-Roman times. In the city centre this tradition can be felt at every corner. Walking you can pass in front of the Romanesque church of San Pietro or the nineteenth-century Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta.

The MAGA Museum is also the cultural highlight, opened in 1966, which today houses about 5,000 works in the futuristic location inaugurated in 2010. But Gallarate has been and still is one of the main poles of the textile industry, an excellence in Italy and in the world. And it is 6 kilometres from Malpensa airport.
