Boario Terme

The writer Alessandro Manzoni and many other praised the water of Boario which is famous all over Italy. Marketed since the early 1900s, the waters gush from four springs in the modern resort situated in a park of over 140.000 square meters. Luine Park is well worth a visit for the first rock engravings of the valley. Lake Moro is very beautiful with its charming village of Capodilago.

Franciacorta

An area of gentle hills covered with vineyards, medieval towers and patrician villas. It lies in a sunny hollow to the south of Lake Iseo and has been dedicated to wine-making since the Romans started to cultivate the vine. Heirs of the tradition, today's wine-makers produce high-quality wines, the most famous being "Franciacorta", the king of Italian sparkling wines.

Lake Iseo

Every lake is a world of its own and Lake Iseo is one of the most charming and romantic because of its changing moods, its amphitheatre of surrounding mountains, and its central island, Monte Isola (the largest lake island in Europe) which rises green out of the lake's deep, blue waters. It is easily reached by ferry and no cars are allowed. In just a few minutes the boat arrives at the pretty fishing villages which have maintained their charm.
