Geography
Lombardy borders Piedmont to the west, Switzerland to the north, Veneto and Trentino to the east and Emilia-Romagna to the south. 47,1% of the Lombardy territory is flat and 40,5% is mountainous. Part of the region is constituted by moraine. The Po Valley extends in the southern Lombardy while the northern areas are covered by the Alps, whose highest peak is Pizzo Zupò measuring 3,996 mt. The Alp chain is characterized by the presence of lakes of glacial origins, as the Lake Garda, the widest Italian lake, that stretches partially over the Lombardy territory. The region is crossed by the longest Italian watercourse, River Po. Other relevant rivers are Adda, Oglio and Ticino. This region has many national and regional parks.
