Overview



The first ever guide to this area gets to grips with Milan, international mecca of fashion and shopping, with its awesome art collections and world-famous La Scala opera house. The economic powerhouse of Italy since the Middle Ages, Milan is today a vibrant, frenetic city and Cadogan's discerning listings seek out the best bars, restaurants and clubs in which to party with the locals. But Lombardy has its gentle side too, and this guide reveals idylls along the shores of the famous Italian Lakes, such as the palms, lemon groves, and castles surrounding Lake Garda, and winds through the Renaissance cities of the Lombard plain. Admire the Gonzaga frescoes of Mantua and visit the refined art city of Bergamo, perched on a promontory on the edge of the Alps. The beauty of the area is illustrated in stunning color photographs, and full travel and practical information will make anyone's stay as dreamy as the scenery.
