Lombardy is one of the largest Italian regions. Located at the northern end of the peninsula, it borders the Swiss Confederation.
Its territory, stretching from the Alps to the low Po Valley, gives rise to a wide range of landscapes.
Of particular charm is the scenery of the Alpine chain with Valchiavenna, Valtellina and Valcamonica.
For winter sports enthusiasts, Lombardy offers modern facilities and equipment in the popular Tonale, Bormio, Livigno and Madesimo resorts.
Another characteristic landscape of the region is offered by the hillsides, among which stands the Franciacorta area, famous for its vineyards and wine production.
And then, the charm of the great lakes. The western slope of Lake Garda, with Sirmione and other renowned resorts, is a tourist destination of strong appeal; of great beauty are also Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, surrounded by noble villas, parks and enchanting villages.
Typical of the region are the large flat stretches of the low Padana Plain covered with mirrors of water and cultivated on rice fields: it is the typical landscape of Lomellina, the land of the worlds, rich in folklore and traditions.
Favored by its particular geographic location and land resources, Lombardy is a particularly rich land where nature, history, art and culture blend harmoniously with innovation, technology, fashion, fun and modernity.
The provinces are:
Bergamo, Brescia, Como, Cremona, Lecco, Lodi, Mantua, Milan (capitals), Monza BrianzaMonza and Brianza,
Pavia, Sondrio, Varese.
