Lakes Mountains and Valleys in Lombardy

Lakes Mountains and Valleys in Lombardy
Wines Landscapes & Charming Villages


Your Lombardy itinerary starts from the shores of Lake Iseo - one of the most beautiful lakes in Italy for its wild and poignant scenery - reaching down hilly slopes and gentle terraces: these are the lands of Franciacorta, famous for its wines, lyrical landscapes and charming villages, rich in history and culture.

 The hills of Franciacorta have a long winemaking tradition and a local valuable identity protected by the Wine Consortium of Franciacorta, kept alive in the many wineries, restaurants, farmhouses and surrounding vineyards.

Monte Isola is the largest lake island in Europe; located on Lake Iseo, here you can enjoy both the lake sardines dried and preserved in olive oil and salt, and the artisan salami of Montisola.

For a Personalized Lombardy Itinerary

From Lake Iseo you reach the “Vallecamonica” valley, over 100 km in length, framed by spectacular mountains: the Adamello group, the “Pizzo Badile”, the Horn of three Lords, and the Oglio river.

The Camuni People have inhabited this land for thousands of years giving rise to a thriving rupestrian art of which you still can admire wonderful examples. Since 1979  the rupestrian treasures of Valcamonica are part of the UNESCO World Heritage, the first Italian site to enter into this list.

Excellent Cold Cuts from animals reared at the family level, often in the wild; cheese from cow or goat  milk from high pastures and other areas. Among others  stands out silter cheese, produced only with cow milk from Alpine pastures, Fatulì, produced mainly in Val Saviore, a cheese of goat milk from a native breed called Blonde of Adamello, smoked with juniper berries.

All accompanied by the ever present polenta and by white and red Vallecamonica IGT wines, thanks to the dedication of local wine lovers, giving new life to a centuries-old tradition.
