It was in 1907 that a certain Mr. Wyatt, son and heir of a wealthy British subject, came as a tourist to the hills above Grandola and Uniti. He fell in love with the place and settled there with his wife. A perfect English gentleman cannot survive without his game of golf and Mr. Wyatt was no exception. He organized a makeshift 9-hole course which soon became a favourite meeting place for golf-lovers in the area. In the fifties the Golf Club was handed over to Italians. Mention should be made of the golfing library, second only to S. Andrew's.

One of Italy’s largest regions, Lombardy lies in the north of the country, sharing a border with Switzerland
Stretching from the Alps to the lowlands of the Po Valley, it is home to a wide range of landscapes, including the breathtaking mountain chain that boasts the ValchiavennaValtellina and the Camonica Valley
Winter sports enthusiasts will find no lack of state-of-the-art facilities in Lombardy, for example in the extremely popular resorts of TonaleBormioLivigno and Madesimo

Another aspect that defines the region is its expanse of rolling hills that encompass the distinctive Franciacorta area, famous for its vineyards and wine production. The charm of the great lakes is a great tourist draw, attracting visitors to Sirmione and other well known destinations dotting the western coast of Lake Garda, while Lake Como and Lake Maggiore are no less beautiful, surrounded as they are by stately homes, parks and picturesque small towns.
 
The region is also characterized by the great flat tracts of the Po Valley lowlands, covered by shimmering mirrors of water and rice paddies: this is the typical landscape of Lomellina, the land of rice harvesters, steeped in tradition. 
The region has countless other distinctive facets. Lombardy, aided by its geographic position and fertile soil, will captivate you - nature, history, art and culture marry in harmony with innovation, technology, fashion, entertainment, and a contemporary outlook. 

The region comprises the provinces of BergamoBresciaComoCremonaLeccoLodiMantuaMilan (regional capital), Monza and BrianzaPaviaSondrio and Varese

 

 

COMO

Along the western side of Lake Como, between Como and Bellagio, lies a journey of discovery of the Sacro Monte of Ossuccio on the Island of Comacina, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area is a cluster of old Medieval towns, 18th-Century villas and mountainous nature trails.

The territory of Como is rather varied, with the aforementioned mountainous areas, lakes and valleys. The City of Como lies at the base of Mount Brunate and is surrounded by hills and the Alpine foothills that watch over the southern part of Lake Como. 
Beginning with Como, at the furthest point of the western arm of the lake, one encounters beautiful communities one after the other, tucked away in the mountains that lie alongside the calm waters. 

All the lakeside towns are perfect vacation spots year-round. They are accessbile reached by boat, funicualr or car, via little roads with splendid views of nature unspoiled. Everywhere in Como, homage is paid to native Alessandro Volta, the celebrated inventor of the battery.
