Lake Iseo From Shore to Shore by Boat

Do you wish to discover the Iseo Lake from a different angle? Before Christo changes the landscape with its monumental work The Floating Piers, you can live a pleasant, relaxing day between shoreline villages on board one of numerous ferries that will take you from one side of the Lake to the other. Start at Sarnico and get to the lively lakeshore destination of Lovere. Here you can visit the Tadini Academy, where the works of Antonio Canova, Francesco Hayez, Tiepolo and Bellini can be found.

A place that you should not miss is Monte Isola, a beautiful location comprising of charming fishing villages, a quiet atmosphere and small restaurants facing the lake, giving you the chance to eat outdoors while being caressed by a lacustrine breeze.

You can always move around using the local private ferry services, great for organizing personalised tours. It is also possible to plan them with the Compagnia di Navigazione del Lago d'Iseo.

There are night cruises offering dinner, live music and tourist guides, that will take you to historic towns like Predore, perfect for those who wish to be surrounded by nature and do some trekking, Tavernola, full of inspiring landscapes and islands, with Monte Isola, Loreto and San Paolo among them.
