Search the best hotels in Lombardy
The best places to stay in Lombardy are as varied as the terrain, but our Guru’s rexcommendations favour independent hotels, a number of which have a long tradition in providing hospitality.
Lombardy spreads from Switzerland and the Alps to the flat, agricultural plains of the Po Valley. Within that varied stretch are the wonderful Italian Lakes of Como, Garda, Maggiore and Iseo and the ski resorts of Bormio and Livigno. There’s also a wine region and a number of World Heritage Sites. Lombardy’s capital is fashionable and outward looking Milan. Milan has the feel of a busy international city, but if you look beyond the hip hotels, even hipper restaurants and high design boutiques you’ll see its historic side.
What Not To Miss
- Many of Milan's architectural treasures can be found around the grand Gothic cathedral but the city also has an incredible art collection and a wonderful opera house. And of course all that shopping.
- Just 15km from Milan (only 10 mins by train) is Monza, current home to the Italian Grand Prix and a charming city of lovely architecture and green spaces.
- The numerous beautiful lakes! Zooming out of the tunnel on the train from Milan, Lake Como is laid out in front of you in all her spectacular beauty. Beauty based not solely on natural assets - the pristine waters, the mountainous backdrop, the sprinkling of small islands - but also on the charm of the little towns surrounding it. Just to the north is Lake Garda, largest of Lombardy’s lakes and a sun drenched playground of vineyard, olive groves and cypresses with the Dolomites on one side. All of which makes it look more like southern Italy than northern Italy.
- Then there’s Lake Maggiore, known for its lush climate, exotic plants and fairytale towns and resorts and Lake Iseo, preferred by Italian holidaymakers and very lush and green.
- Don't forget architecturally beautiful Bergamo, overlooking the southern plains and offering wonderful views, wonderful art, and some wonderful dining opportunities. Brescia with its fascinating old town, Mantova or Mantua, one of the most important centres of the Italian Renaissance, and looking well and truly the part, Cremona, with its wonderfully historic centre, and Pavia, founded by the Romans and occupying an important strategic position slap bang in the middle of an agricultural plain.
Whether you're visiting for a chic city break or a spot of rural relaxation, the best places to stay in Lombardy are popular destinations, so do yourself a favour and plan well ahead, so that you don't miss out.
