Forget Prosecco, it’s all about Franciacorta DOCG sparkling wine on Lake Iseo! The Franciacorta region's full of family run vineyards, so there are loads of places to find your favourite wine. If you fancy a bit more activity, there are loads of great cycle routes around, our favourites are the ‘wine routes’ – hire an e-bike and set off through the vineyards. You can even schedule in tastings as you go.
What to see on a Lake Iseo holiday
The main town of Iseo's on the south of the lake. Soak up the history from the medieval streets and relax around the arcaded shopping areas and the main square, Piazza Garibaldi. There's a brilliant market on Friday's, a great place to get to know the locals and try out the local produce.
One of the best places for a day trip is Monte Isola, the largest inhabited lake island in Europe. It's pedestrianised apart from the local bus, so the perfect place if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. We love exploring and finding local trattoria’s to stop at for lunch, with their red checked table cloths and typical Italian food. There are always ferries running from Iseo and Sulzano, so it’s easy to hop from town to town and island to island.
