Lombardy Holidays

Lombardy is a region that has plenty to offer visitors and has been popular with tourists for hundreds of years. Located in the north of Italy, its capital, Milan, is known as the country’s fashion hub, but it also boasts a rich history and is a great starting point for trips to the Lombardy’s picturesque lakes.

North of the city you’ll find Lake Como, the most glamorous of Italy’s lakes, whose charming shores have attracted the rich and famous for centuries. As one of Italy’s largest regions, Lake Garda’s western towns can also be found in Lombardy, including mountainous Limone and the beautiful Gardone Riviera. Those wanting a quieter escape will find what they’re looking for in Lake Maggiore, or head away from the tourist crowds completely in Lake Iseo, where you’ll find yourself in peaceful surroundings in the heart of the Franciacorta region – a place known for its excellent sparkling wine of the same name.
