The city long known as the style capital of the world is a staple of the Lombardia region and has long been one of the popular vacation destinations for economy visitors. Besides Milano through the region is filled with wealthy towns consisting of imposing palazzi and beautifully decorated churches. Named after the barbarians who desecrated and crushed the Roman Empire, Lombardia still has the feeling of its Germanic roots. Donít be surprised to see a blond haired, blue-eyed Italian. They more than likely have Germanic ancestors and are very different in appearance than the "typical Italian" one would imagine. But that is part of the diversity of northern Italy.
