The Lombardy region
Sondrio borders at Livigno to Switzerland (the Engadin) to the north and bosts is fair share of high altitude alpine mountains. Stretching from the Alps to the lowlands of the Po Valley, it is home to a wide range of landscapes, including the breathtaking mountain chain that boasts the Valchiavenna, Valtellina and the Camonica Valley.
It has a fascinating mix of different styles and eras. It is famous for being a place where man demonstrated his ingenuity by creating terraces in the rugged land to cultivate world famous regional wines - the vines and the thousands and thousands of terraces having contributed to its fame.
Lying at the mouth of th Malenco Valley, Sondrio is the heart of the Valtellina. Typical are the vineyards covering the foothills of the Rettiche Alps.For centuries, the lands on the northern slopes of the valley have been cleared of woods and rocks to build terraces to cultivate vines.
These remain an economic asset for Valtellina, but also a cultural asset. They stand as extraordinary testimony to man‘s ability in transforming a territory despite unfavourable local and climatic conditions.
Winter sports enthusiasts will find no lack of state-of-the-art facilities in Trepalle and Livigno.
Another aspect that defines the region is its expanse of rolling hills that encompass the distinctive Franciacorta area, famous for its vineyards and wine production. The charm of the great lakes is a great tourist draw, attracting visitors to Sirmione and other well known destinations dotting the western coast of Lake Garda, while Lake Como and Lake Maggiore are no less beautiful, surrounded as they are by stately homes, parks and picturesque small towns.
The region is also characterized by the great flat tracts of the Po Valley lowlands, covered by shimmering mirrors of water and rice paddies: this is the typical landscape of Lomellina, the land of rice harvesters, steeped in tradition.
The region has countless other distinctive facets. Lombardy, aided by its geographic position and fertile soil, will captivate you - nature, history, art and culture marry in harmony with innovation, technology, fashion, entertainment, and a contemporary outlook.
