A view of Montisola by the estern side of the lake.

LAGO D'ISEO

The Iseo Lake is a place set among hills and mountains at the end of Val Camonica Valley, between the province of Brescia e Bergamo.
Having a walk near the lake banks, you can perceive the magic of ancient villages, bottles of perfumes a flavours from the kitchens of the local restaurants and taste the excellent wines of Franciacorta. It's a restless land made of dreams, castles and vineyards where are produced more than 120 labels.
At the centre of the lake there is Montisola, the biggest lake island of Italy, which ends up with the Sanctuary Madonna della Ceriola, at a high of 600 metres: it's a peculiar beauty forbidden to cars. Fishermen's villages are the same still today, they have been preserved through years by the today frenetic lifestyle.
