Lake Iseo

One of the least known lakes in northern Italy, and much quieter than Garda. Check out the Franciacorta wine-growing district, south of the lake, or head to Monte Isola – the largest lake island in Europe, mercifully free of cars! To get here take the frequent train from Brescia to the pretty town of Iseo, and then the lake ferry.

Do & See

The Brescia area is particularly well known for its lake landscapes - Lake Garda and Lake Iseo are reachable in less than one hour, and it's recommended to visit them for their atmospheric, breathtaking natural beauty. Here, with old castles emerging from water and greenery, you're likely to see unforgettable views. The center of Brescia also boasts Roman remains, Medieval and Baroque churches, and extensive collections of artworks, preserving the memory of Italy's diverse history and architecture. Moreover, Brescia is a popular destination for children and fun-lovers, near to the huge Gardaland amusement park, and to a refreshing water park for the summer.
