What Makes LOMBARDY Special



Lombardy, thanks to its vast lakes and small basins, is known as the lakes region. It offers a truly unique collage of experiences. Staying on Lake Como, Lake Garda or Lake Maggiore - naming just a few - entails immersing yourself in an incredibly lush nature. There, you can indulge in picturesque landscapes, villages lost in time, ancient castles and monasteries. Plus, there is the incredible cuisine and an array of water sports and activities. The mountain peaks, on the other hand, welcome ski and snowboard buffs. Internationally-famous destinations such as Camonica Valley or Valtellina offer state-of-the-art ski resorts of the likes of Livigno, Aprica, Bormio and uncountable slopes for every skill level. Summertime opens doors to a plethora of hiking trail as well as possibilities of rafting or mountain biking. And, the Stelvio Glacier allows skiers to enjoy the thrills of swooshing down a snowy slope even in the warmest months!


Unlike the regions of the south most of which struggled with poverty, Lombard cuisine has been largely shaped by abundance and prosperity. As a result of the region’s climate and agriculture, local food is heavily based in ingredients such as maize, rice, beef, pork, and butter and has little in common with typical Central or Southern Italian staples. That's due to lack of tomatoes and olive oil. Hence, it relies more on butter and meat. Its specialties vary from staples such as saffron risotto to the breaded cutlet cotoletta alla Milanese. Other specific dishes include, for instance, pizzoccheri (a buckwheat spin on tagliatelle); bresaola (air-dried, salted beef); cured salame of Varzi or freshwater fish. Famous Lombard cheeses feature delicacies like Gorgonzola; Mascarpone; Parmesan-style cheese Grana; Robiola soft cheese or Bel Paese. As per sweets, you might be familiar with Milan’s panettone or almond-flavor Amaretto liqueur.

Milan, Lombardy’s capital, is a booming commercial and industrial center both within the EU and internationally. In fact, it’s the most important city in Italy regarding banking; industry; publishing; fashion; industry, stock exchange and branches of many multinational companies. Furthermore, it’s one also of the key higher education, editorial and television centers in Italy. And, it boasts the biggest area for trade fairs in Europe. Why is this important? Well, wealth and innovation make the answer the question "what to see in Lombardy?" different from the rest of Italy. The region, Milan in particular, is a hub for technological advancement and daring artistic pursuits not just in clothing but also in architecture and modern art. Thanks to this you’ll have a chance to see modern marvels such as the Vertical Forests - high-rise buildings housing 20,000 trees and plants. Give it a chance and dive a bit deeper into Lombardy.
