Lombardia – Territory

The territory of Lombardia includes both mountains and plain (the Pianura Padana), and also a small part of hills. In the mountains of Lombardy there are renewed ski resorts as Livigno, Bormio, Tonale and Madesimo.

But also it is possible to find interesting archaeological sites, such as Val Camonica, rich in rock carvings, or Monte San Giorgio, on the border with Switzerland, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for the high presence of fossils.
Many rice fields are in the “Pianura Padana” – the plain of river Po –  particularly in Lomellina, while the hilly area of Franciacorta is famous for the production of top quality white sparkling wines.
Lombardia
is also the region of the main Italian lakes: Lake Garda, where tourists go for windsurfing or to enjoying the thermal waters of Sirmione; for relaxing holidays in Stresa, but also beloved for canoeing and kayaking; or Lake Como, celebrated by the writer Alessandro Manzoni‘s in its novel “The Betrothed”.

The little town of Bellagio, on the promontory in the center of the lake, gave its name to Bellagio Las Vegas. The beauty of the lake inspired George Clooney that decided to buy a villa here.
The variety of landscapes and business activities in Lombardia offers endless opportunities for holidays: a trendy shopping, wine tasting tours or cultural tours in historic cities, museums, exibitions, music, sports: golf, sailing on the lakes, trekking, mountain biking, skiing, rafting, canyoning and paragliding.
