Castles and culture from a holiday home in Lake Iseo
Lombardy boasts a broad array of attractions, and Lake Iseo is one of the most exhilarating places to tour in the northern region of Italy. Sandwiched between two world-renowned Italian lakes (Garda and Como), Lake Iseo stretches extensively, snaking its way through magnificent mountains. While there, you can explore a rich cultural and architectural history in the surrounding villages from your comfortable, secure holiday apartment Lake Iseo. Step into the outdoors to explore nearby nature reserves, such as the Pyramids of Zone, and check out numerous islands in the middle of the lake, including Monte Isola.
Holiday apartments on Lake Iseo: Amazing things to do
When you’re not relaxing in your dream holiday apartment Lake Iseo, you can consider adding the following exciting activities to your itinerary for exploring the Italian lakes:
Touring the villages around Lake Iseo
Lake Iseo charms visitors for not only its tranquil, blue waters but also for the historical villages and towns surrounding it. Iseo, for instance, stands out for its medieval buildings with patios, and the unique streets paved with cobblestones. Monte Isola, an island at the southern part of the lake, is also worth a visit, as it hosts the 14th-century Martinengo castle. There is a fortified tower standing tall and firm inside the archaic building, and a structure (that probably functioned as a small home base for guards) leans against the northern wall of the fortress. A secure pathway links the Martinengo castle with the port of Sensole. The villages around Lake Iseo guarantee exquisite scenery at the heart of nature and ancient art.
Get to the Pyramids of Zone
Zone, an ancient village around Lake Iseo, has preserved its classic appeal, thanks to its magnificent pyramids, some of which can be as tall as 30m. Unlike their Egyptian counterparts, these are an outcome of prolonged natural erosion and are characterized by slender outcrops crowned at the top with eerie boulders. The uncanny topography they create makes for breathtaking views, and many visitors enjoy venturing deep into the unique, natural works of art to capture their memories with photos. Be ready to navigate a rough terrain that snakes through the pyramids. The trail takes about 30min to cover, and it offers spectacular views of Lake Iseo and the underlying valleys.
Discover Antica Strada Valeriana, and go on a hike
Antica Strada Valeriana can be the highlight of your trip to Lake Iseo if you’re in for a fun-filled hike from Pilzone d’Iseo to Pisogne. You can make a couple of stops along the historic trade route, perhaps in the towns of Sulzano or Marone. It’s a roughly 25km long trip that takes about 9 hours, so you may wish to rest at some point and grab some pizza or a cappuccino. You could also bring your own water and packed food prepared at your holiday home on Lake Iseo. Start your journey early in the morning when it’s cool enough to navigate the challenging rocky trail while enjoying panoramic views of the lake from the eastern side.
Breathtaking views from a holiday apartment near Lake Iseo
Lake Iseo offers plenty of accommodation options to let you enjoy touring the surroundings without inconvenience. Small or large groups of people can select a secure house at an isolated, quiet location, and experience magnificent views of the surrounding mountains or popular attractions, such as the Madonna della Rota cliff. TUI Villas offers a range of convenient options, such as a private chalet with a kitchenette and fully-furnished rooms, or a casa casita with all the amenities visitors and their families need to have a great time. The ideal holiday home on Lake Iseo has ovens and cookers for guests intending on preparing their own meals.
Popular attractions and spots around Lake Iseo
The largest lake in Italy, Lake Garda, is a popular holiday destination, with one half of the water body sandwiched between Brescia and Verona, and the other half nestled between Venice and Millan. It boasts several islands, including Isola dei Garda, which hosts a Venetian Gothic style building from the 19th century. Alternatively, find Lake Como in Lombardy, roughly 40km north of the city of Milan, and enjoy water surfing, skiing, or windsurfing. Milan is the home of world-leading dressmaking and fashion trendsetters, from Armani to Versace. The economic hub of Lombardy is Italy’s second-most populous city, and it teems with iconic architectural wonders, including Duomo di Milano, a Gothic-style cathedral with a history dating back to the 1380s.
Travel to Lake Iseo from the UK
Visitors can book a direct flight from Heathrow airport in London to Brescia or Bergamo, which are the gateways to Lake Iseo. From the airport at Brescia, you can board a bus or train to the eastern side of the lake and drop by villages or towns along the way, such as Iseo and Sulzano. If you’re flying to Bergamo, you can reach the western shores of Lake Iseo by bus, stopping at Sarnico to the southwest side of the water body, or proceeding to Predore and Tavernola. You may also explore the lake by water transport, such as ferryboats plying between Sulzano harbour and Monte Isola Peschiera. The line ferry service serves all destinations along the lake, including Iseo and Sale Marasino.
Best time to tour Lake Iseo
July and August are the hottest months of the year in Italy, allowing tourists to enjoy water sports and relaxation by the shores of Lake Iseo. For those who like to venture out when temperatures are moderate and the shores are less crowded, the ideal time to visit the lake is spring (from April to June), or September to October over autumn. The region cools off in September, making for a perfect, serene sightseeing season. You may also visit in winter and enjoy outdoor activities like snow shows organized for the season. There are few hotels and restaurants open here during winter, but this won’t be a problem if you’re staying and eating at your holiday apartment on Lake Iseo.
