Lombardy is one of Italy’s largest regions and touches the border with Switzerland. Encased between the Alps and the Po Valley, it’s home to a variety of landscapes. Lombardy is the place to be, with its capital city of Milan and its villages. As for the numerous water bodies found in this region, we find Lake Garda, Lake Como, and Lake Maggiore.
The region of Lombardy features eleven UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the infamous “The Last Supper” in Milan, the historic industrial village of Crespi d’Adda in Bergamo, the city of Cremona – known for its traditional violin craftsmanship, and the cities of Mantova and Sabbioneta – celebrated for their representation of Renaissance town planning.
