Lombardy Countryside Tours

Itinerary Highlights Just outside Milan there are opportunities to experience the rich culture, history and traditions present in small towns and the surrounding countryside, including:

o   renaissance squares, palaces and churches, a toy museum with painted and handmade 17th  and 18th century masterpieces
o   farmhouses with the  authentic atmosphere of a Lombard farm and its traditions, fine arts archives and unique local food specialties, and
o   the last brick-kiln in the region, a beautiful example of industrial archeology where the historic roots of this ancient building blend with the works of local artists
o   sailing the Adda and Po Rivers – Italy’s largest

Food and Wine Programs The Lombardy region has three main wine producing areas:

·         Franciacorta specializing in sparkling wines, among the best in Italy and a serious competitor to the French champagne
·         Oltrepo Pavese well known in Italy and abroad, and
·         San Colombano south of Milan in the Lodi area with a niche production of selected wines

Regional wine selections are accompanied by typical local dishes made with fresh seasonal ingredients handpicked at local markets.
