Welcome to Italy in Photos, a mesmerizing visual experience that unveils the hidden treasures of Lombardy: – Lombardy, is an administrative region of Italy that covers 23,844 km² and is in the northern-central part of the country. It has a population of about 10 million people, constituting more than one-sixth of Italy’s population. The region is bordered by Switzerland to the north and by the Italian regions of Emilia-Romagna to the south, Veneto to the east, and Piedmont to the west. Lombardy is home to Milan, the largest metropolitan area in Italy and among the largest in the European Union. The region is also known for its beautiful lakes, including Lake Como and Lake Garda, which are popular tourist destinations. Lombardy is also home to many UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including eleven in total. The region has a rich history and culture. It was once ruled by the Germanic Lombard raiders who had controlled most of early Christian Italy since their invasion of Byzantine Italy in CE 568 until the fall of Pavia on the river Ticino in CE 774 by the Frankish Charlemagne on the Pope’s behalf. As such, “Lombardy” and “Italy” were almost interchangeable; by the mid-8th century, the Lombards ruled everywhere except for the Papal possessions around Rome — roughly modern Lazio and northern Umbria — Venice and some Byzantine possessions in the south—southern Apulia and Calabria; some coastal settlements including Amalfi, Gaeta, Naples and Sorrento; Sicily and Sardinia; their culture is foundational to Italy in the Middle Ages.
Lombardy is also known for its cuisine. The region is famous for its risotto alla milanese, a saffron-flavoured rice dish that is typically served with ossobuco (braised veal shanks). Other popular dishes include cotoletta alla milanese (breaded veal cutlets), polenta (cornmeal mush), and panettone (a sweet bread loaf that is traditionally eaten during Christmas). In terms of tourism, Lombardia has a lot to offer. Visitors can explore Milan’s many museums and art galleries or take a stroll through one of its many parks. The region’s lakes are also popular tourist destinations, offering opportunities for swimming, boating, and hiking. Lombardia is also home to many historic towns and cities, including Bergamo, Brescia, Cremona, Mantua, and Pavia. Visitors can explore these towns’ beautiful architecture and monuments or take a trip to one of Lombardia’s many vineyards. Lombardia is a beautiful region with a rich history and culture. It offers something for everyone, from Milan’s museums and art galleries to Lake Como’s stunning scenery. Whether you’re interested in history, culture, or just relaxing by the lake, Lombardia has something to offer.
