Top-5 Tips and Must-Sees of the Region
1st Monte Isola: This island is the largest sea island in Southern Europe and is overlooked by a church. The church Santuario della Madonna della Ceriola is enthroned on the 600 metre high island mountain and represents a picturesque photo motif. Most visitors are attracted to the picturesque, small town of Peschiera Maraglio. Their rows of houses reach up to the water and served as the backdrop for an unusual work of art in early summer 2016. The artist Christo installed "The Floating Piers", attracting over a million visitors to the otherwise tranquil Monte Isola.
2nd Castello Oldofredi: This castle complex, built in the 11th century, is the landmark of Iseo. It is situated on the outskirts of the village on the Torrazzo hill and offers visitors a picturesque panoramic view. Friedrich Barbarossa once besieged them during his campaign through northern Italy and had them burned down. Nothing more can be seen of that brute act today. The Castello Oldofredi houses a library, a historical museum and offers the opportunity to get married in the nostalgic rooms. In this way you combine the most beautiful day of your life with the following honeymoon in a vacation rental at the lake.
3rd Franciacorta: The famous Franciacorta wine-growing region begins directly on the southern shore of Lake Iseo. So you can start directly from the apartment to taste some fine wines.
The winegrowers of Erbusco, Corte Franca or another pretty wine village mainly cultivate the grape varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
4. the church of Pisogne: in the 15th century, the tiny commune of Pisogne, situated on the northern shore, received an unusual church. From the outside rather inconspicuous, inside a fabulous ceiling fresco opens in front of the eyes of the church visitors. The painting shows the Passion of Christ - in such impressive colours that the viewer believes he is admiring a photograph rather than a drawing!
5th lake road: In order to absorb the most beautiful natural impressions and local views, car, motorbike and cyclists thread their way onto the 60 kilometre long ring road around Lake Iseo. This will automatically take you to all the villages on the shore worth seeing and will always wind along the surface of the water. Because the surrounding area is rocky, many tunnels and spectacular hairpin bends await the excursionists.
