Milan is located to the central west of Lombardy, its strategic position in the centre of the Po Valley allows mountain lovers to go hiking and trekking almost everywhere between the Alps, the Apennines and the sea.
For your day hike "on the outskirts" of Milan there are many spectacular areas and valleys with views over the lakes, Monte Rosa massif, Bernina massif and the western Italian and Swiss Alps like Masino-Bregaglia massif.
