The Lombardy Region
Lombardy is one of the world’s most surprising regions. World renown for its food, culture, fashion, joy for life and of course its football! You must visit Lombardy and the Oltrepò Pavese area at least once in your life. Then see if you can stay away.
Anna Del Conte, author of the book “The Classic Food of Northern Italy” states that in a gastronomic sense, Lombardy is the most interesting region of Italy. There are 12 provinces in Lombardy, and a host of different cuisines.
Piedmont (or Piemonte) has sometimes been referred to as ‘Tuscany without the tourists’, Piedmont’s undulating hills striped with vineyards bear more than a passing resemblance to its famous southern counterpart.
The Oltrepò Pavese is a place where good food and family hospitality are still at the heart of daily life. Unsurprisingly, its cultural and gastronomic curiosities are in perfect harmony with its vast and prestigious wine production.
