Explore Lake Idro and its surroundings
Not far from Brescia there is a small lake surrounded by mountains that reflects the forest greenery and offers all the serenity we need in an instant.
We are talking about Lake Idro, one of the least crowded destinations in the area, which should be put on the calendar as soon as possible to enjoy trips off the beaten track during the pleasantness of the spring season, which has now stopped retreating and is finally affording us bright days and rising temperatures.
In this unspoilt place, where nature and history meet, anyone can find their much-desired portion of relaxation and enjoyment. The more athletic will love sailing and windsurfing in its waters or trekking and climbing on Mount Maniva, enjoying the thrill of the splendid views from the mountains known as the Little Brescian Dolomites.
More culturally-minded visitors will be delighted by the historical wealth of Bagolino and the small hamlets that line the lakeshore and will certainly not be intimidated by the 498 steps leading up to the Rocca d'Anfo, a monumental fortress overlooking the lake and a must-see attraction in the area.
Following an itinerary with several stages through the main attractions of Lake Idro and its surroundings, let us take a closer look at what the area surrounding this lovely blue gem has to offer.
