Fruitful Lombardy, pleasant garden

Taming of the Shrew, [1.1.1-9]. Lucentio. “Tranio, since for the great desire I had/ To see fair Padua, nursery of arts,/ I am arriv’d for fruitful Lombardy,/ the pleasant garden of great Italy,/ And by my father’s love and leave am arm’d/ With his good will and thy good company,/ My trusty servant, well approv’d in all,/ here let us breath and haply institute/ A course of learning and ingenious studies.”
