Bergamo • Milan

It is probably going to take a while for this region of Italy to recover from its infamy as the epicentre of the European coronavirus pandemic.  Before that it had been best known for its role in the Blue Banana, the affluent corridor of industrial power through the heart of Europe.

Not untypically of affluent regions, it has long espoused some form of autonomy or even national independence since the times of Napoleon, the Austrian Empire and onwards.

Like anywhere in Italy, great local food and wine, phenomenal architecture, museums, art galleries and lovely people!
