This region, steeped in history and charm, is one of the most photogenic areas of Italy. Milan may be the fashion capital of the world, but this region's beauty is more than skin deep. Superb industrial design is intrinsic, and the cuisine has an earthiness extending from humble polenta to hearty osso bucco and to the region's understated wines and cheeses. Only a short trip from Milan, the turquoise lakes boast majestic castles and elegant villas reflected in the mirror-like surfaces, offset by the mountains where northern Italy's adrenaline junkies and young jetsetters make the ski slopes their playground. Footprint's first full-colour guide to the Italian Lakes comes complete with a standalone Popout map, making perfect for anyone wanting to get out and explore this beautiful region. A comprehensive guide to Milan and the Italian Lakes, that also covers Po Valley towns of Bergamo, Brescia, Cremona, Mantua and Verona Expert authors Lara and Terry know their stuff and explain where to take in the best shopping and eating in Milan and the Lakes Details of breath-taking, hair-raising drives through the rolling lake region Outlines the coolest, most stylish and design-led museums and shops in the region The best grand old homes and gardens, secret back-street walks and the most authentic ice-cream parlours
