The environment

The Iseo Lake is surely the most picturesque one of the Lombardian lakes, for its unpolluted nature and its small and ancient habitations where one can admire palaces, churches and castles built hundreds of years ago. In the centre of the lake lies the biggest lake island of Europe called Montisola with next to it the two small islands Loreto and San Paolo.  One can reach Montisola by swift boats that depart from almost every locality around the lake. Zone, the village known for the natural pyramids of earth, can be reached from Marone, taking a road with countless hairpin curves. The pyramids of earth are a true attraction for tourists; they are enormous natural spire roofs of earth that sustain big massifs. Of great interest is Le Torbiere of Iseo or The Nature Reserve of the Torbiere: a fen-land with mirrors of water where many species of birds live in full freedom. A few hundred metres from the main entrance of the reserve we find the Monastery of San Pietro in Lamosa of the XIV - XV Century. To be visited is the territory of the Franciacorta and its wine cellars where a wine is produced that has always been enjoying a high reputation all over the world.  The Franciacorta is also a territory of very ancient castles. In a lot of them stayed well-known characters like for example Dante Alighieri.  Interesting is the territory of the Valle Camonica, a valley that is situated so high that it reaches even 3000 metres above sea level, therefore a true paradise for those fascinated by winter sports. In the territories Capo di Ponte, Nardo and Cilimbergo we can find engravings made in the Bronze era.
