10 Good Reasons to...

Fashion, design, food, lakes… a few suggestions for your stay in Lombardy

We want to give you 10 reasons for preferring this region, but we are sure that after your stay you will have discovered lots more.

Let us have your 10 good reasons for visiting Lombardy and which excellences make it special for tourism. Lombardy, a region that knows how to welcome you, whatever kind of holiday you are looking for.
Milan, the go-to city for fashion and design, and not just Italian, mixes socialising, cultural activities and little havens of peace and quiet just a few kilometres outside the centre.
For lovers of active tourism, the Alps offer so much sport, with hiking and skiing the most classic, but you can also try horse riding or be brave and go paragliding.
There are plenty of lakes and rivers. From their banks you can not only fish or swim, but you will also come across historic villages with tiny streets to get lost in and perhaps taste a typical local dish or two.
You might come to Monza for a Formula 1 Grand Prix, or to Pavia to admire the dazzling white marble architecture of the Certosa.
For those looking to relax, what could be better than a spa weekend? There is Sirmione on Lake Garda or, if you prefer the mountains, you find a warm welcome in Valtellina.
The wonderful plain and its rivers and streams are the main players in Lodi, dotted with castles for visiting, country villas and abbeys.
You will also be won over by our typical dishes: try pumpkin filled tortellini in Mantua or Milanese-style tripe at the foot of the walls of Pizzighettone. If you follow one of the routes of taste, you will take home the memory of splendid scenery and traditional products.
Whether you are a romantic, business or family tourist, visiting Lombardy is a good idea for any pocket. Still looking for more ideas for your trip? Browse our gallery and find your ideal destination.
