Lombardy..

Bordering Switzerland in Italy’s north, Lombardia includes the fashion capital of Milan, historic and artistic jewels of Bergamo and the famous Italian Lakes:-  

Lake Garda – the largest lake in Italy halfway between Milan and Venice. Verona and historical Sirmione are nearby.
Lake Maggiore– bordering Piedmont, Lombardy and Swiss Ticino, highlights include Isola Bella with its ancient castle and Stresa, favourite destination of European aristocracy. 
Lake Como  – a jewel like oasis of tranquility, half an hour from bustling Milan, at the foot of the Italian Alps. 

Lombardy region has 9 recognized UNESCO sites, the highest concentration in Italy. The characteristics of these sites strongly testify to the richness and variety of the cultural heritage of this region.?The sites range from prehistoric archaeological assets such as the Camuni rock carvings to the industrial archaeology of the workers' village of Crespi d'Adda, from the sophisticated artistry of Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper* to the religious power of the region's sacred mountains, the Sacri Monti, and from the natural scenic beauties traversed by the Bernina Railway to the architectural gems of Mantova and Sabbioneta, passing through centuries-old sites from the Lombard era to reach into prehistory itself: the rich heritage of Monte San Giorgio and the prehistoric pile-dwellings of the Alpine region.
