We visited Montisola, a quaint little island on the lake that can only be reached by ferry. At the highest point of the island therre is a sanctuary... Tough way up, but great experience, and worth all the breath-taking views of all the lake! A must-do for anyone visiting the area!

This peaceful lake is a gem in the Franciacorta region. The small village of Iseo is a quiet retreat surrounded by vineyards and mountains. Great location to explore the local gastronomy but most importantly to discover the Franciacorta wine.

Most Italian Lake breaks and holidays will occur in Lake Garda, Como or Maggiore. Don't get me wrong - we are very fond of all the lake region and area. However we love Lake Iseo for several reasons - better value in a like-for-like comparison; easily manageable as you can probably go round most towns dotting the lake during your... More

The lake and its surroundings are beautiful. I liked the fact that it is a place where Italians live and work, not just a tourist destination.

On a family vacation in october. Lake iseo is anything but crowded at this time, though that also means that possibilities for fe. swimming are very limited as most of the beaches are closed. Loads of outdoor activities available for people that are resourceful and not afraid to venture out for fe. hikes. Weather in october is mild and warm,... More

Got there by accident (when weather was not and our side) and we couldn't be happier!! Amazing hidden gem. Quiet and beautiful. Pay a half day visit at least!

in comparison to crowded and overrated Lake Garda this area is almost deserted. The hills are spectacular and biking is demanding.

I spent a wonderful day at this beautiful location. We took the boat ride across to the island, had a wonderful lunch, then proceeded to walk totally around the island. It is not for the faint-hearted as the entire circuit is approximately 9 kilometers...but the scenery both on the island and looking out from the island is great. We started... More

We visited in mid May and enjoyed a relaxing break. We were on a package with Inghams so we could opt in to some of their trips, Bergamot, wine tasting, rose gardens etc. The public boat service is more limited this early, so if you are relying on public transport going a little later would be advisable. The boat plus... More
