Lombardy has to be Italy’s most diverse region- the Alps, the lakes, the rice fields- great red wines and Italy’s finest sparkling wines. The wines, culture and cuisine match this diversity and after this tour you will also be thoroughly acquainted with this wonderful area of Italy.
After meeting in Milan’s Malpensa airport, we take the short trip to Lake Como and our lakeside hotel. Lake Como is so beautiful it inspired George Clooney to buy an estate there.
Then we head north to the Valtellina and in the valley dwarfed by the Alps, we’ll experience some of Italy’s unheralded great red wines such as sfursat, made from the same nebbiolo grape of Piedmont.
We end our visit to Lombardy with 3 nights on the shore of Lake Iseo, the smallest of the lakes. Our lakeside hotel has gorgeous views of the area that is the epicenter of Italy’s sparkling wines that rival Champagne. We’ll also go to Lake Garda, famous for its white wine production.
After a truly idyllic visit we leave from Milan on October 27.
