Gallarate is a popular place to head to while you are exploring Milan as some of the city’s star attractions are within easy driving distance. Two of the most interesting places to see are the fabulous Robinie Golf Club and the remarkable Volandia Museum of Flight. Two other worthy points of interest you’ll find close by Gallarate are Safaripark and Piazza Martiri.
If the sun is shining get outdoors and make the most of the nearby parks and reserves. Discover the area’s birdlife with a visit to a nearby lake like Lake Comabbio in Vergiate.
Take time out from the sights and work on your swing at the La Pinetina Golf Club in Appiano Gentile.
Watch local favorites, the Pallacanestro Varese, do battle in the nearby PalaWhirlpool, Varese. On game days follow the procession of red and white, to the stadium, then after the final siren sounds, join fans at a nearby pub, bar or cafe for a post-game drink.
To really get to know Gallarate, think about booking your accommodation at one of the area’s charming bed and breakfast or hotel options. If you’re looking for a warm welcome and a good nights sleep check out the Sheraton Milan Malpensa Airport Hotel & Conference Center, Ferno, the Idea Hotel Milano Malpensa Airport, Somma Lombardo, and the Grand Hotel Milano Malpensa, Somma Lombardo.
