Varzi is a town in the province of Pavia in the Lombardy region, located about 70 km south of Milan and about 40 km south of Pavia.
It has a continental climate, mitigated by its relative height, which guarantees pleasant coolness during the summer nights.
Since the sea is only about 80km away, Varzi also benefits from a healthy breeze, which blows down the valley.
