Informazioni turistiche Lombardia
Lombardy is made up of 11 provinces: Bergamo, Brescia, Como, Cremona, Lecco, Lodi, Mantova, Pavia, Sondrio and the lively Milan.
From a production point of view Lombardy is considered one of Italy’s most important regions with an enormous production output in the industrial and agricultural fields and also in tourism and finance. The Pianura Padana is the main feature of the Lombard countryside, with its river basins and lakes. Of its numerous lakes, the most well known are Lake Maggiore, Lake Garda and Manzoni’s Lake Como.
There is also an abundance of rivers and streams like the Ticino, the Micinio, the Oglio and the Adda
This however, does not mean the region is without mountains. Lombardy has not only the Passo dello Stelvio in Valtellina, it also possesses an Alpine range with the Bernina mountain reaching 2760m.
The chief Lombard town is Milan, a modern buzzing city which is very active economically and culturally and can count itself among the most interesting metropolises in the world. Milan’s trade fairs have become an occasion for exhibition, growth and exchange between the worlds of Italian and international production. The importance of such events has given the area that hosts the exhibitions the name of “Zona Fiera” which means “Trade Fair Area”.
The heart of Milan is still Piazza Duomo which together with the Vittorio Emanuele Gallery, the Scala and the enchanting Navigli, is a must for both tourists and those who are in Milan on business.
Milan welcomes thousands of guests every year and offers a wide and varied range of accommodation choices. Hotels, guest houses, rooms-to-let, self catering apartments and holiday resorts are available all over Lombardy. Youth hostels and camp sites situated all over Lombardy, offer different possibilities for young people.
