The region of Lombardy stretches from the Alps, on the border with Switzerland, down past the romantic lakes of Como and Maggiore to the broad, flat plain of river Po.

Milan Cathedral

Lombardy is one of the most developed tourist destinations in Italy, its major draw being the beautiful scenic lakes. Surrounded by abundant vegetation, Lake Como is set in an idyllic landscape of mountains, tall peaks that seem to rise directly from the water’s edge. With a number of places to visit along the shores, including the prosperous towns of Como and Lecco, the area is also great for walking and in most places the lake is clean enough for swimming. Lake Maggiore has a Mediterranean atmosphere, with citrus trees and palms lining the shores, and offers a more sedate pace.

Near Stresa, are the Borromean Islands, of which Isola Bella is the most popular. It is home to the 17th-century Palazzo Borromeo and its splendid garden of landscaped terraces, fountains, peacocks and statues. A lesser known lake, Lake Iseo, is the fifth largest in northern Italy. Situated in wine producing country, surrounded by mountains and waterfalls, it is popular for its watersports and boasts the largest lake-island in Italy, Monte Isola. All three lakes are well served by ferries which zig-zag from shore to shore, and are within easy reach of the vibrant city of Milan.

The region is made up of the following provinces: Bermago, Brescia, Como, Cremona, Lecco, Lodi, Mantova, Milano, Pavia, Sondrio and Varese.
