Italy's capital and its gardens
Lombardy, also known as the land of lakes and mountains, is Italy’s most important economic region. At the same time this region is full of artistic treasures and natural beauty. Lombardy is in fact, home to some of Italy’s largest and most stunning lakes. Aside from the well- known Lake Maggiore with its stunning Borromean Islands, Lake Garda also straddles the borders of Lombardy, Trentino and Veneto, whilst Lake Lugano sits on the Swiss border to the North. The province also boasts breathtaking Lake Iseo, which gained popularity in the last years thanks to Christo’s “Floating Piers” installation.
The region’s capital Milan alone has many attractions to create a wonderful group tour, as it is a great venue for a classic city tour. In addition, it is also great for dedicated tours for music or theatre groups with special behind the scenes visits to the famous La Scala opera house. It is also a mecca for shoppers and fashionistas. We are well placed to book group Opera trips as authorised ticket agents for all the productions as well and can take care of your coach entry permits. For groups looking to arrive by air, we also organise all manner of bus transfers for your passengers throughout the region and beyond.
Lombardy also offers a range of lesser known art cities which still offer fascinating historical city centres such as Bergamo, Brescia, Pavia, Cremona and Mantua. For each of these cities we provide you with licenced tourist guides and can organise visits to a range of museums such as the Violin Museum in Cremona. Lombardy is also the perfect place to be for food lovers, a region where the sweetness of the Torrone and the aromatic sparkling Franciacorta wine will delight you with their mouth-watering flavours.
The variety of the region is mirrored by our own broad palette of hotels on offer. Our selection includes both modern, centrally-located city hotels as well as beautiful properties located in the heart of the region. We would be delighted to provide you with the most appropriate location and property depending on your individual requirements.
