For a place I didn’t know much about before this trip, Emilia Romagna has been an eye opener with a little bit of everything: old stone towns, rolling countryside, vineyards, wine and local delicacies, and, of course, the sea. And its bike hotels have been a real bonus. I know I’ll be back

Esta pequeña ciudad a los pies de los Alpes es una de las grandes desconocidas de Italia. Eclipsada por el glamour de la capital de Lombardía, Milán, Bérgamo pasa desapercibida, aunque desde la ventanilla del avión de la aerolinea lowcost, su esbelta figura recortada contra las montañas acapara todas las miradas.

The cities and towns crossed by canals are charming and picturesque, aren’t they?

This past summer I was fortunate enough to spend an entire week traveling around the Lombardy region of Italy. Half of my time was focused in Milan with the other portion dedicated to visiting scenic rural places such as Chiavenna and Bergamo. In Milan, I was surprised by the diversity of activities on offer. Even more fascinating to me was how easy it was to escape the city and be fully immersed in the countryside.

These day trips from Rome would never have crossed my mind if I hadn’t been put in a position to have to do them. Unexpected errands had me organizing long-haul day trips, which at the end of the day, were exhausting but enjoyable.

Unlike many cities and towns in Italy, Cervia, as we see it today, is a rather recent settlement, dating back to the late 17th Century. Well-known as a beach resort of the Emilia-Romagna region for Summer holidays, Cervia actually has a lot of charm apart from its wide beaches.

„Das schönste an der Lombardei sind die Seen“, schwärmte Goethe einst. Doch nicht nur die Seen versetzen unter strahlend blauem Himmel ihre Besucher in Begeisterung. Sondern auch unzählige magische Landschaften, faszinierende Metropolen und unendliche Gaumenfreuden. Ja, die Lombardei, das Piemont und das Valle d´Aosta sind verlockende Reiseziele in Norditalien.

Llegué a Val Seriana por casualidad. Nunca había oído hablar de este valle, de sus pueblos ni de sus maravillas naturales. Me organizó la visita a Val Seriana una amiga blogger, y no puedo estarle más que agradecido por descubrirme una de las mayores sorpresas que me ha dado Italia. Un valle pre alpino, de alta montaña, con todo el sabor de Italia, y a una hora de Bérgamo. Increíble pero cierto.

All of Italy is great, but the north to me is a little less chaotic than its southern cousins and with a little exploration, I’ve discovered some amazing places to visit throughout the area. One of my favorite regions though is known as Lombardy (or Lombardia); its most well known city is I’m sure familiar to you as well – Milan.

I’m pretty sure not many of you will think of Lombardy as a winter wonderland, a place where snow, ski slopes and winter activities are around the corner from the main cities. But have you ever been on top of Milan’s Duomo on a clear day, and noticed how close the mountains are?

I scribbled this on the back of some travel documents while sitting on the sidewalk patio of a café in Milan. The sun was setting and I was enjoying aperitivo, that lovely Italian tradition of relaxing over a drink and a snack between work and dinner, for which Milan is so well known.

Que a Itália seja uma grande meta gastrônomica para os amantes da cozinha genuína, poucos discordam. Mas dentro desse paraíso de sabores autênticos e que dá muita atenção as matérias primas de qualidade e a tradição, existe um outro paraíso: a região da Emilia Romagna.

Beyond spending time objectively sampling every single flavour of gelato in town, I would also need to talk to those on the ground. So I went straight to the locals instead. The people who were born and bred in Bologna, and have practically been raised on gelato.

Lors de mon séjour à Milan, je me suis rendue à Chiavenna avec mes colocataires blogueurs (dans le cadre de l’opération Blogville).
C’est une petite ville de Lombardie qui se trouve au nord du pays près de la frontière suisse. Bien que le trajet en train ait été un peu long, je l’ai trouvé agréable, entrecoupé de jolis paysages et de discussions tantôt en français, tantôt en anglais.
