Refusing to surrender to jet lag, we dropped our bags and set out for Sacro Monte di Varese. After a long late-morning and afternoon of hiking and site seeing in the heat, we dropped by to sample the "Elixir al Borducan."

Stunning views, great service and delicious food. Make sure you try their orange liqueur either in their house spritz or by itself.

The place is beautiful with a lot of history and well preserved. Great atmosphere and gorgeous view, specially in summertime with the chance of enjoying meals on the terrace. The food is average, though some of the dishes stand out from the rest. Prices in line with the food, maybe a little expensive. In any case it is probably the... More

Place where you can relax, enjoy the peace with an incredible view from the mountain. Al Borducan has pleasant rooms with delicious meals. It was our third time here and it is still amazing...! The personal touch of the owners is exceptional, thank you again.
