Natural Parks in Lombardy. Snowy cliffs or a mediterranean weather? The choices are plenty when it comes to visiting Lombardy.


Exploring parks should be part of any vacation itinerary if you wish to fully appreciate this land. The following guide will provide you with useful solutions to enjoy the local natural landscape during your stay. 


In fact, it is the first Region in Italy to come up with an environmental law dedicated to protect its territories from excessive urbanization. It started with the Valley of the Ticino river, with the intent of protecting the habitats of its shores. These ecosystems are often very well preserved and represent a unique natural heritage.


Whoever wishes to spend time among the mountains may head to the Stelvio National Park rises at the heart of the central Alps. It features a varied scenery: vast forests, alpine prairies or perennial glacials. 


Go to the peaks or Colli of Bergamo, this province protects both its architectural and natural wonders in the Upper City.  


Numerous parks near urban areas are worth preserving too. South of Milan, you can venture into wisely worked agricultural zones irrigated by rivers and streams.  


Visiting Lombardy allow visitors to choose amongst several sojourn options and outdoor activities.
