Lake Iseo, also called Sebino, is smaller and less well known than Lake Garda, but very romantically located and surrounded by nice little towns and mountains. It is located halfway between Verona and Milan. In the south of Lake Iseo is the wine region Franciacorta with its high-quality wines and sparkling wines.
You will discover the small village of Iseo before you start the boat trip.
We will take you by private boat from Sulzano (or any other place on the lakeshore) for a 50 minutes mini-cruise while you will explore the small islands of Loreto and San Paolo and go ashore on the island of Monteisola. You will have lunch in a nice restaurant with a view over the lake and taste typical dishes and wine of the region.
Monteisola island ist the largest Italian lake island. There are no private cars on the island of Monteisola. Motorini are approved for the locals and there are minibusses.
The famous artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude chose Lake Iseo to install The Floating Piers, In June 2016 people could walk for two weeks on the lake from Sulzano to Monteisola Island and San Paolo. It was a unique and emotional experience to walk like Jesus across the water. Your guide will tell you about it.
Before you return, stop in the hills of the Franciacorta wine-growing region, which is on the same level of quality as the champagne area. You will visit a winery and taste the wine with typical local products.
