Lombardy is Milan of course but there’s so much more to the area. It is nature, art, mountains, lakes, hills and historic cities. In short, a small world of beauty to discover. The Region of Lombardy, one of the largest in Italy, is located in the north of the peninsula where the Alpine arc plummets to the great lakes. Further downstream, in the rich Po Valley, it borders Switzerland with which it is connected by fascinating passes and ancient railways.
The Alps, Valleys, Lakes and the Wide Plain
The range of landscapes that meet in Lombardy starts with the fascinating scenery of the Alpine chain in Valchiavenna, Valtellina and Valcamonica which offer large ski areas for enthusiasts in winter and green trekking and bike routes in summer.
The gem of the alpine is certainly the rail route of the famous Bernina Train, which since 2008 has become part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. Initiated in 1913 as a connection for importing goods between Italy and Switzerland, over time it has become a privileged means of enjoying the suggestive landscapes that lead from Tirano to Saint-Moritz.
The lake territories are yet another Lombard landscape marvel. Quaint villages overlooking the blue waters that reflect the snowy peaks of the Alps and offer unmissable and adrenaline-filled opportunities for lovers of water sports.
The north-south route flows into the wider Italian plain, where the landscape changes and the rhythm slows down between the bends of the rivers and the green rice fields. Here the folklore and tradition remain intact and the suggestive architecture of the abbeys frames the long expanses of open sky.
