The Art Cities: Daydreaming...

 

 

The Italian art cities are some of the most-visited destinations in international cultural tourism.  Of course, many are Italy’s art cities: Rome, Florence, Venice, Naples, Bologna, Parma, Ferrara, Turin, Milan, Mantua, Padua, Verona, Vicenza, Perugia, Siena, Palermo just to name a few, but when touring Italy, you will soon discover the hundreds of Medieval villages that adorne this magic land!

 

Almost all of them preserve an important historic, artistic and architectonic heritage that narrates the succession of century after century: walking along the narrow street, you will soon find yourselves lost in the history because they are rich in signs of the events of the men who moved about in them. In fact, Italy’s art cities were often the seats of governments and principalities, and the stages for the events that changed the course of history. 

 

More specifically these cities, due to their particular relationship with various axes of power, were made over several times – i.e. as residences of princes, dukes, popes, kings and emperors. 

 

Frequently characterized as an urban textile that preserves the original framework, such as a Roman stronghold or a Medieval borgo, Italy's art cities represent vestiges that each seem to be frozen in different times – some even seem to straddle the divide between more than one historical period, perhaps not having completed the transformation initiated by one conqueror or another. 

 

Marked by the initiatives of great artists and patrons, these cities are not only the repositories of poignant artistic expressions, but are themselves true masterpieces of art. They are open-air museums that can be enjoyed and admired on foot.

 

Considering such a heavy bargain of culture, history, arts, when we prepare a golf tour touching these places, we take in account that golf plays only a little part of the day because the remaining part is taken by your curiosity to visit, to understand what these magic places have to offer.

 

We have prepared great golf proposals based in these cities; you could spend all the stay in one location or make various combinations. Here are our some of our suggestions:

Siena 3 nights + Florence 4 nights

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

 

 

MILAN

Large, lively and industrious, the Province of Milan is the second most populous in Italy. Its territory extends over a stretch of the Po Valley and includes the River Ticino to the west, and the River Adda to the east. It is shaped by its waterways: river and canals that traverse it and sometimes border it, from the Lambro and Olana Rivers to the numerous canals, the Navigli Milanesi, ancient links between the area's major water runs. These runs link farmsteads and villages like that of Corneliano Bertario with the Castello Borromeo Castle; and ancient noble villas, such as the Inzago Villa near the Naviglio Martesana, to the Canale Villoresi, thought to be the longest man-made canal in Italy. The Villoresi marks the natural southern border of Brianza, an area in Lombardy noted for its mountains, lakes and plains. 

The territory of Milan contains six regional natural parks: Parco Adda Nord, Parco Agricolo Sud Milano, Parco delle Groane, Parco Nord Milano, Parco della Valle del Lambro and the Parco Lombardo della Valle del Ticino.
Half the Province of Milan is agricultural and flood plain, and most of it is protected by reserves. Each of these habitats features a variety of natural, country and architectural landscapes of great interest.
