Lake Iseo Holidays

Lake Iseo is situated between Lake Garda and Lake Como, and has a relaxed natural beauty. Where the other lakes have seen development and ever-increasing popularity, Lake Iseo’s peaceful charm remains crowd-free. 

Nestled between the striking peaks of the Alps, Lake Iseo is an unspoilt destination with some of the prettiest villages in Italy. The lake’s capital, Iseo, is the star destination – a beautiful town set around a picturesque harbour. Set out in the waters is Europe's largest inhabited lake island, Monte Isola. It’s larger than the isle of Capri and is great for cycling. 

Lake Iseo is notable for its excellent wine heritage, with the sparkling Franciacorta DOCG being the top tipple, and lots of wineries or vineyards to explore. Brescia’s medieval splendours are just 25 minutes away, and Lake Garda takes less than an hour to reach – perfect for making the most of your time here.

On guided tours/excursions, it is customary to leave a token of appreciation for the driver and guide.
