Lombardy Area Guide
Lombardy in the north of Italy is a diverse region of grand cities, great lakes, flat plains and high mountains, bordering Switzerland to the north, Piedmont to the west and Trentino to the east. The most populous region by far, Lombardy is home to about 10 million people, forming one-sixth of Italy's population. With about a fifth of Italy's GDP being produced in the region, it also makes it the richest region in the country and one of the richest regions in Europe. Milan, the regional capital, is the second-largest city and the largest metropolitan area in Italy, as well as the obvious hub of the region’s economy and culture. Internationally renowned as a fashion capital, the city is home to just about every fashion house you can think of, including Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Valentino.
The charm of the great lakes is a huge tourist draw, attracting visitors to Sirmione, Como and other well-known destinations dotting the shores of Lakes Como, Garda and Maggiore, surrounded as they are by stately homes, parks and picturesque small towns. Another aspect that defines the region is its expanse of rolling hills that encompass the distinctive Franciacorta area, famous for its vineyards and wine production. The region is also characterized by the great flat tracts of the Po Valley lowlands, covered by shimmering mirrors of water and rice paddies: this is the typical landscape of Lomellina, the land of rice harvesters, steeped in tradition. The region has countless other distinctive facets. Lombardy, aided by its geographic position and fertile soil, will captivate you - nature, history, art and culture marry in harmony with innovation, technology, fashion, entertainment, and a contemporary outlook.
