Escape this Christmas to the well kept secret of Lake Iseo. Nestled between the low Alps, Lake Iseo is an unspoilt beautiful lake which has some of the prettiest port villages in Italy.
Lake Iseo is stunningly picturesque, sheltered by the surrounding mountains between the larger and more famous Lake Garda and Como. The main town of Iseo is on the south shore, its medieval origins evident in the street patterns, arcaded shopping areas and peaceful squares with its most striking feature being Monte Isola Island, the largest inhabited lake island in Europe.
