Lake Iseo

The Lake is named after Iseo, medieval town of 9.200 inhabitants on the south-eastern shore, and is the fourth largest lake in Lombardy, Italy, fed by the Oglio river. Lake Iseo has been attracting writers and artists, thinkers and curious tourists from all over the world for a long time. It is an enchanting and romantic lake surrounded by olive and chestnut trees, set like a jewel among the mountains and embraced by hills that gently and gradually slope down towards Franciacorta, an area of extraordinary wines.
