Those who love the coolness of lakes, mountain landscapes, luscious greenery and unhurried life away from big cities usually choose the northern lakes of Italy: Como, Maggiore and Garda. But between these lakes there is another one that is less known, but not less beautiful and interesting for tourists and active rest lovers – Lake Iseo.

It’s one of the deepest lakes in Italy, which huddles in the foothills of the Alps, between the provinces of Bergamo and Brescia. Lake Iseo is famous for its island of Monte Isola, the largest lake island in Italy and the highest lake island in Europe. It is on lake Iseo that the iconic luxury yacht makers Riva are located and you can see their collection of boats. Don’t lose the occasion to stroll around many lovely towns scattered along the shore.

On a sunny winter day we decided to discover this lake and we can assure you that Iseo did not disappoint us. I would sincerely recommend it as a wedding destination, as a more accessible and less common alternative to lakes Como and Garda.
