Region of Lombardia, Italy

Lombardy covers approximately the centre of the Po Valley, as well as extending over the middle of the Italian Alps. It borders with Switzerland to the north, Emilia-Romagna to the south, Piemonte to the west and Trentino-Alto Adige and Venezia to the east.
The region (23,856 sq km.) is only the fourth largest in Italy though it is unquestionably the most densely populated (c. 8,879,000); the population density (372 inhabitants per sq.km) makes Lombardy the second region, after Campania; 1/14 of the country's entire population is concentrated in the Province of Milan. Milan is the capital of Lombardy.

By tradition, the main tourist attractions in this region, apart from Milan and the other main towns, are the great Alpine lakes and this detracts from the scenic and artistic attractions of the mountains and plains.

Lombardy is made up eleven provinces: Bergamo, Brescia, Como, Cremona, Lecco, Lodi Mantova, Milano, Pavia, Sondrio, Varese
