Lombardy Italy. . . the land of style, culture, romanticism and myriad culinary delights


Lombardy is one of Italy’s largest regions, lies in the north of the country, sharing a border with Switzerland.

Stretching from the Alps to the lowlands of the Po Valley, it is home to a wide range of landscapes, including the breathtaking mountain chain with the Valchiavenna, Valtellina and Camonica Valley.

The expansive rolling hills of the region encompass the distinctive Franciacorta area, famous for its vineyards and wine production. Then of course there is the charm of the great lakes, attracting visitors to Sirmione and other well known destinations dotted along the west side of Lake Garda, while Lake Como and Lake Maggiore are no less beautiful, surrounded as they are by stately homes, parks and picturesque small towns.

The Po Valley lowlands are where Arborio, Carnaroli and Vialone Nano rices are grown.

Lombardy’s food specialities range from the delicious saffron risotto to the bread crumbed cutlet called Cotoletta Milanese. Among the region’s most celebrated and delicious cheeses there are Gorgonzola, from the town of the same name, Mascarpone, the unpasteurised Lodigiano, parmesan-style Grana, Robiola soft cheese and Bel Paese. Milan’s panettone is renowned worldwide, as too is the almond flavoured Amaretto liqueur from Saronno.

There is currently nothing listed for this destination.
