The region occupies the main part of the Po Valley. It includes a hilly district with the major Italian lakes, from the Easter slope of Lago Maggiore to the Lakes of Varese,lseo, Como and to the northern part of Lake Garda.
The regional capital is Milan. Other important cities are: Bergamo, Brescia, Como, Varese, Sondrio, Pavia, Cremona, Mantua.
The peninsula of Sirmione on Lake Garda and the “Gardesana” coast; the Lomellina and the Valtellina districts.
Generally the climate is continental
with cold winters and hot summers.
Being a vast region though there is a
difference of climate from area to area:
in fact the alpine area winters are colder
and with abundant snow.
From Spring to Autumn we suggest the art cities and the Lakes; in winter the alpine area for skiing.
