Blue Guide Lombardy, Milan & the Italian Lakes
Designed for the traveller who wants to understand more fully what he or she sees. This new guide to Lombardy, historic and important region of northern Italy, covers the history, the art and the culture of the cities and lakes in depth, beginning with the great city of Milan and taking you on itineraries to every corner of the region. The wide scope offered by this book makes it the best guide for the independent cultural traveller: it transmits a real sense of the joy of discovery and visits lesser-known towns in delightful detail. The book covers Milan, Lake Como, Lake Maggiore, Lake Garda, Mantua, Brescia, Lago d’Iseo, Bergamo, Cremona and Varese, along with plenty of other places in between. With high-quality maps from Blue Guides’ award-winning cartography series, clear plans, photos and illustrations, and honest coverage of places to eat and drink, genuinely visited by our authors and compilers.
Researched and written by Alta Macadam, author of many Italian Blue Guides, and Annabel Barber, series editor and author and co-author of several Blue Guides about Rome.
