Nature Vacation Lombardy

Lombardy is a very rich region from the naturalistic point of view. There is so much to discover ... do it with us!

Do nature and sports make an integral part of your vacation? The Region of Lombardy will provide several activities in a charming scenery. 

This territory boasts a more varied flora and fauna than one could imagine. Milan for example is often mistakenly taken for a gray, solely urban environment, yet it is possible to spend entire days surrounded by nature in spaces such as the Sempione Park or the Indro Montanelli Gardens, making for a distinct stay in the city.

Once in the countryside, local nature will greet you with forests, mountains and lakes. Take a walk or go on a bicycle ride at the breathtaking landscapes of Franciacorta or Oltrepò Pavese. The roads and irrigation ditches that will lead you to rice paddies of Lomellina are just as suggestive. 

Natural Parks are an essential element of a memorable vacation in the heart of nature. The Stelvio is teeming with animal species native to Lombardy like deer, chamois, mountain goats and groundhogs, to mention only a few.   

From its lacustrine backdrops to its hills, meadows and waterstreams, everyone will have the chance to treat themselves to relaxing moments amidst Lombardy's green setting.
