LombardyItaly

Travel to northern Italy for historical discoveries in medieval centers, the latest fashions and relaxation near the country's great lakes.

Lombardy is a region of forests, snow-capped peaks, lakes and picturesque towns and cities. The scenery accommodates varied outdoor adventures, while urban landscapes reveal cultural and historical treasures. Shop for the latest styles in one of the world’s fashion capitals, explore medieval centers, ski in the Alps and vacation near Italy’s great lakes.

Head to Lombardy’s capital, Milan, a global fashion hub. Search for designer clothing in the Quadrilatero d' Oro district’s boutiques and the glass-roofed Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II arcade. Wear your new outfit for an elegant evening at the acclaimed La Scala opera house. Visit some of the city's other best-known attractions. Admire one of Leonardo Da Vinci's masterpieces, The Last Supper mural, in the refectory of the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Appreciate the view from the spired rooftop of the Gothic Cathedral of Milan (Duomo).

Drive or take the train to Mantua, about 95 miles (155 kilometers) southeast of Milan. This Renaissance city is filled with many architectural gems, including the magnificent Ducal Palace and the late 14th-century cathedral. Other captivating buildings await in Pavia, which was known as the City of 100 Towers in the Middle Ages. During these times, wealthy residents tried to outdo each other by building tall structures. Today, gaze up at the remaining towers, seemingly nonfunctional.

Take advantage of Lombardy's variety of natural settings. Ski the resorts of Bormio and Livigno. Follow a wine trail through the vine-covered hills of Franciacorta and sample Italy’s sparkling wines.

Enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Lake Como, Lake Maggiore and Lake Garda in the northern lake region. Sail, windsurf and canoe on these vast bodies of water. Tour towns and villages along the lakes. Centuries-old churches and villas of Bellagio line the shores of Como. Sightsee at Scaliger Castle on the southern shore of Garda.

Reach Lombardy by flying into Milan’s international airports. Get around by rental car, trains and buses to experience the best of the region’s scenery, culture and history.
