Some holiday destinations prefer to keep their secret. Lake Iseo is one of them. It 's so nice and quiet! Between vineyards, hills and medieval towns you will find beautiful campsites. The holiday will have a romantic touch.
There are some places in Italy which are still not as well known as others. Lake Iseo is one of them. The campsites are located right on the shores of the lake.
The island can be seen in the distance from the beach? It is Monte Isola, accessible by ferry.
If you love long walks and bike rides along the lake this is the perfect place! Do not forget to bring along a camera to capture the beautiful landscapes.
The old villages are like works of art and Carzano you eat freshly caught fish from the lake.
Around the Lake Iseo, the landscape is hilly and green. Here is cultivated grapes with which it produces one of the most famous wines: the Franciacorta. The most beautiful city can be found along the shores of the lake. Sarnico, Lovere and Castro have a wonderful medieval atmosphere with narrow streets, churches, romantic and good food. Are you a nature lover? Between Lake Iseo and the small Lake Endine you will enjoy landscapes are truly captivating. You can also stay at the campsite in the sun or go to the beach to enjoy various water sports!

We recommend a ferry trip to Monte Isola, the largest lake island in Italy and the highest in Europe, reached 600 feet in height. Do not miss the historic centre of Peschiera Maraglio and authentic Carzano. The time has stopped here, it seems that way anyway!
The market Rovato, started as a cattle market, is still very popular. In the square you can still eat excellent quality meat. The restaurants Trattoria del Gallo and Two Doves are highly recommended!
The Pyramids of erosion zone phenomena are one of nature's most curious and interesting ‘Vallecamonica’ and are deep in Lake Iseo. These strange rocks reach up to 30m in height and are shaped by the erosive action of the water.
The Long Lake Iseo is full of shops and boutiques, but if you're looking for more, the centre of Brescia lacks nothing. Here, every second Sunday of the month there is an antiques market in Piazza Vittoria.
