Honey and cheese, the perfect combination

A tip for anyone visiting Milan: you can board a special train that will bring you directly here, to the Valtellina! This is where you'll find the most beautiful landscape and all the products that are typical of this area. For example the honey (and the propolis). Let's understand where does the honey come from and how is it produced.
