The region of Lombardy has much to offer its visitors; natural beauty and charming landscapes combined with an immense artistic and cultural heritage that make it one of Italy’s Regions with the most varied offerings in terms of tourism.
Each year, the region attracts more than 15 million tourists to its accommodation facilities, thanks to its mountains, lakes, the almost 400 museums, the cities of art, villages, and a wide variety of food and wine products, but, it is also thanks to the possibility it gives of practising many different sports and the way it offers its visitors a high quality of hospitality. In this land, nature has expressed itself in the most delightful way.
Lombardy is also an ideal location for business trips, thanks to the efficiency and ubiquity of its services. It has excellent connections with the rest of the world (including with the other regions of Italy), thanks to the presence of three airports. Milan, the regional capital, is also one of the main European hubs for high-speed trains. The Region has more than 70,000 kilometres of roads, from motorways to provincial and municipal roads that cross and connect the entire territory.
In recent years, Lombardy has embraced the direction of the regeneration of disused spaces and neighbourhoods: new post-industrial areas are being created in which food, work and ideas can be shared.
Whether for a weekend or a whole week, a holiday can certainly be sustainable, affordable and suitable for everyone and in line with the new travel trend of the future, which increasingly combines leisure and business.
The region offers easy-to-book experiences, and is able to combine targeted services for business travellers with memorable moments of relaxation and leisure. In addition to visits to museums and monuments, it is also interesting to explore the small businesses of local producers. Authenticity and territoriality are indispensable qualities for representing desirable destinations. Musical events, exhibitions, fairs and traditional festivals also amplify interest in the area.
Congress tourism has a rich tradition and represents an important economic and image resource. Congress centres, conference hotels, historic residences and other prestigious venues constitute a highly professional, international network for the organisation of conferences, events or trips in the most evocative settings: large cities, historic sites, mountain villages, lakes, spa areas. It is a fluid territory, adaptable to the needs of the business customer looking for stimulating spaces to work and hold meetings, but also places to take a break in company. Sociality has thus become an element of primary importance.
All these elements make this land an excellent starting point for a trip not only to Lombardy but also in the discovery of Italy.
