Lake Iseo is the fourth largest lake in Northern Italy. It is quieter and less developed than neighbouring Garda and has a perimeter of about 60 km. The lakeside towns are linked by a public boat service. Nestled between the low Alps, Lake Iseo is an unspoilt beautiful lake which has some of the prettiest port villages in Italy. The main town of Iseo is on the south shore, its medieval origins evident in the street patterns, arcaded shopping areas and peaceful squares. Lake Iseo’s most striking feature is Monte Isola island, the largest inhabited lake island in Europe. This is home to 11 small communities, traffic-free and easily reached by boat from the lakeside towns of Iseo and Sulzano – the perfect spot for a peaceful stroll. There is gentle walking too around the Torbiere del Sebino adjacent to Iseo Town. It’s a lakeside wetland nature reserve, a mecca for birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts. The Franciacorta area to the South has a more rolling landscape and is famous for its sparkling wines. Your hotels in Lake Iseo give you a great choice of accommodation.
A night at the opera in the ancient arena in Verona must surely be one of life’s great experiences even if you’re not an opera buff. The 2014 programme (20 June - 7 September) includes Bizet’s Carmen, Verdi’s Aida and Turandot and Madame Butterfly by Puccini. We can arrange tickets either as part of a stay in Verona or as an excursion from our Lake Garda resorts or from Lake Iseo.
Two Centres | You can combine your 7 night stay in Lake Iseo with 3, 4 or 7 nights in Venice or Verona, or a Lake Garda resort.
