  1. Milan, although not as aesthetically pleasing and cuturally rich asother destinations in Italy, thanks in part to the heavy destructionit saw during WWII, the city is located near the very beautifulmountains and lake regions of Lago di Como and Lago di Garda as wellas some more atmoshperic towns such as Verona and Bergamo thus makingMilan a great base to start your travels in the region.
