Lombardy
The Essential
Lombardy may well be the birthplace of elegance. Immerse yourself in Milan, the swanky capital of fashion and design, admire the charming upper and lower towns of Bergamo, nestling at the footsteps of the Alps, taste one of the country's best cuisines at Mantua and do not miss the outstanding Renaissance façade of the charterhouse of Pavia.
Then, to rest your eyes from all this worldly refinement, make a beeline for the peaceful banks of the region's great lakes and islands, whose villas and gardens are framed by the snow-capped Alps. Visions of beauty as far as the eye can see!
