Lombardy is the wealthiest, most highly developed and most densely populated region of Italy.
Milan, the region's capital, is a great city of industry and commerce, the driving force behind all new trend setting, from fashion to technological innovation, from advertising to design and life styles ...
Yet, beneath its thick cloak as a dynamic metropolis projected towards the future, Milan conceals an eventful cultural life and extraordinary artistic treasures.
Visitors are spoilt for choice; from the Duomo to La Scala Opera House, from the Sforzesco Castle to the Pinacoteca di Brera, the Basilica of St. Ambrogio and the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie (with the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci).
Lombardy offers visitors a wide variety of superb natural landscapes; lakes, rivers, hills, thermal baths, mountains, parks (amongst them the Parco dello Stelvio), not to mention monuments and art works of the highest order in Bergamo, Brescia, Como, Cremona, Lecco, Lodi, Mantua, Monza, Pavia, Sondrio and Varese.
From the Romanesque to the Gothic, from the Renaissance to the Baroque, from prehistoric graffiti to the most audacious and innovative architectural and artistic solutions of contemporary times; Lombardy never ceases to amaze!
