Lombardia

Why choosing Lombardia for your holiday in Italy

From the Duomo to futuristic skyscrapers. From the shores of the lake to the snow-capped mountains. Lombardia region is this and much more.

A visit to Milan can only start from its symbolic monument, the Duomo. From its terraces, an 8000 m2 observatory, you can admire the city from above: from the Velasca Tower to the Palazzo dell’Arengario, to the dome of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, up to the Alps. Crossing the most famous gallery in Milan from Piazza Duomo you arrive at the Teatro alla Scala, which with its museum testifies to the history of one of the most prestigious theaters in the world. A few steps away is the Brera district, with its bohemian charm, where the Pinacoteca of the same name is located, which houses absolute masterpieces such as the “Sacred Conversation” by Piero della Francesca. A jewel not to be missed, the Braidense Library. To discover the history of the city even more deeply, another must-see is the Sforzesco Castle, now home to numerous museums and works of art, including Michelangelo’s Piet√† Rondanini which also stole the heart of Bob Dylan . The future? Just look up. In recent years, in the Porta Nuova and City Life districts, new skyscrapers have redesigned the city skyline.

A trip around Lake Como is what is needed for those who love nature and sumptuous buildings from times gone by. There are splendid villages that stand on its banks, all rich in an artistic, cultural, historical and landscape heritage worthy of our beautiful country. From the main cities such as Como and Lecco, to the smaller and less known towns which however hide unique gems. All united by the charm of Como characterized by flower gardens, woods, inlets, valleys, prestigious villas and medieval architecture.

Tremezzo is known as “the village of gardens”, it best represents the most authentic expression of the villages of Lake Como. Its name means “middle ground” and is due to its position, exactly halfway between the Swiss Canton of Grisons pass and the Po Valley. This town is ideal for finding some peace in the countryside. The palaces, churches and villas that enrich its architectural and artistic value are all to be admired, such as Villa Carlotta and its beautiful and well-kept Italian garden, Villa Carlia, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo and the Church of San Lorenzo.

The municipality of Menaggio is located on the western shore of the lake, at the mouth of the valley that bears the name of the town. It is easily reachable by boat from Varenna or Bellagio.

Absolutely worth seeing is the elegant lakeside that Menaggio offers, among flower beds, palm trees and a wrought iron railing with refined doodles to enjoy the lake in a refined and peaceful setting. In the innermost area you can discover churches and villas, such as Villa Mylius Vigoni, immersed in an English garden.

Bellagio is known for its characteristic historic center and its enchanting position, so much so that it is called the pearl of Lake Como. It stands romantically on the tip of the promontory that divides the lake exactly into the two branches of Como and Lecco.

Walking through its streets you will come across colorful houses, picturesque alleys, stairways and ancient churches. Among the stops not to be missed are Villa Melzi and Villa Serbelloni, they are the symbols of Bellagio and famous throughout the world for their splendor and well-kept gardens.
