GUIDED TOURS OF MONTISOLA AND ISEO

A journey through history, art and tradition

Iseo is an ancient and cosy small town and you will be impressed by its narrow streets and hidden squares, its medieval fishermen’s houses and Renaissance merchants’ buildings. As you walk closer to the waterfront, you will enjoy stunning views of the Pre-Alps surrounding the lake. The ferry tour around the largest lake island in Europe will allow you to admire Montisola from amazing perspectives.

In Peschiera Maraglio, an ancient fishing village perched on this mountain in the midst of the lake, you will take a walk among onshore olive trees and you will experience a surreal atmosphere, immersed in the calm of gorgeous surroundings. On the island, you can visit an operative shipyard, where the traditional fishing boats called “naècc” are built, whose origins fade away into past legends. Later, you can choose to visit a winery in Franciacorta and taste our renowned local wines.
