Nature, mountains, lakes and countryside: Lombardy offers a wide range of destionations suitable for any kind of traveller.
In addition to the cities of art, the pristine mountains and some of the most beautiful lakes in Italy, Lombardy also offers itineraries for food & wine as well as eco-sustainable tourism. The Franciacorta area serves as an example: land of vineyards, it is a small jewel nestled in Lombardy, lapping Lake Iseo to the south. Do not miss the Olivetana Abbey of Rodengo Saiano, the Monastery of San Pietro in Lamosa in Provaglio di Iseo, and the Natural Reserve Torbiere del Sebino - a wetland of international importance for its fauna.
Franciacorta extends for 200 km and encompasses 19 municipalities in Brescia united by a common thread, that of good wine and nature. It is right here, among the moraine hills rich in minerals, that Franciacorta DOCG is made, an excellence Made in Italy while a 'tour of the cellars' represents a truly unforgettable experience.
Along with the wine tourism, Franciacorta is increasingly opening up to its naturalistic dimension and an ideal place for sports. Among the proposals we highlight:
- cycling itineraries among the magnificent landscapes of the hills and vineyards;
- trekking, walking and Nordic walking on the Brescia - Iseo route, on Monte Orfano, in Erbusco, Borgonato and towards other destinations;
- tour of the Castles: Bornato Castle and Passirano Castle, just to name a few.
