Lombardy Lake District

As the quaternary glaciers slowly melted, their ancient footprints remained like deep fjord-like scratches in the area just south of the alpine range in Lombardy.




Thaw and rain finished the job, leaving a broad band of lakes sweeping from the west to the east of Lombardy. This is a small trip of coastal smalltowns and villages. Far from being exhaustive and based on my wanderings alone, this is an ope thread. Feel free to add your own contributions.

Lake Iseo. Pisogne.













Lake Iseo - Sulzano










Lake Garda - Desenzano









Lake Garda - Monėga







Lake Garda - Limone





Yep, this is the setting for the tunnel chase in "Quantum of Solace"...









Lake Garda - Toscolano Maderno.






Lake Garda - Sirmione
