Lake Iseo - Jewel of Lombardy

Lake Iseo - Jewel of Lombardy Overview

The lakes of Lombardy make up one of the prettiest regions of northern Italy and Lake Iseo is indisputedly the jewel in the crown.

  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • top-quality hotels, both with a pool
  • outstanding cuisine and interesting wines
  • undiscovered lake, a secret jewel

This indulgent and very gastronomic break combines two high-quality hotels for a marvellous exploration of an area that is little-known beyond northern Italy and feels all the more special as a result. Set between the better-known lakes of Como and Garda, Iseo is the smallest of Lombardy's four major lakes, but is a true jewel, with imposing, angular mountains and deep gorges to the north and the delightful Franciacorta vineyards in the hills to the south.

Grapes were first planted here in Roman times but the wines remain as great a secret as the region itself, serving as the perfect accompaniment to the refined cuisine of lake fish, delicious meats and distinctive local cheeses.
