Lombardy The Lombardy occupies a vast territory extending from the arch of the Alps to the Po Valley. Can distinguish, from north to south, three different groups: an area of mountains, foothills of the Alps with a valleys, lakes and hills, wide plains. The southwestern part of the region (Oltrepò Pavese) also covers a short stretch of the Apennines.
In the mountainous north mark the border with Switzerland and include three chains: the Alps and Lepontine Rhaetian Alps, northern and high, with peaks as the Piz Bernina (4,049 m) and Ortler Alps (3,905 m); the Bergamo Alps, southern and low altitude, so that they are considered as pre-Alps. In this group there are many mountain valleys: the Valtellina, the Valleys Brembana Seriava, Camonica Trompia. Among the major crossing points: the Splügenpass, Bernina, Stelvio.
An area of hills dividing the foothills of the vast plain, which stands in the high plains, arid and infertile, and low plains, rich in water and intensively cultivated.
The water network is formed by rivers, lakes, canals. The Po collects the waters of the main rivers of Lombardy, its tributaries on the left: the Ticino, Adda, Oglio, the Mincio. They descend from the Alps, before arriving in the plain, they become emissaries of the tributaries and lakes in the Alpine Foreland, the largest in Italy: Lake Maggiore, Lake Como, Lake Iseo, Lake Garda. Lombard only fully Lake Como and Lake Iseo, Lake Maggiore is also extended in Piedmont and Switzerland, and Swiss side is another lake, the Lugano, Lake Garda borders with the Veneto and instead Trentino Alto Adige. In plain irrigation is carried out by numerous canals ditches, taking water from springs (springs and springs).
The three regional groups divided in Lombardy determine the climate. In the mountains the climate is typically alpine, with cold and snow in winter and cool summers. Around the lakes the climate is moderate and becomes a Mediterranean climate. Instead, flat overlooking the continental climate: cold winters, warm summers, moderate rainfall.
