With its charming old town and beautiful military and religious architecture, including the Castle of the Oldofredi and the Parish Church of S. Andrea, the picturesque town offers incredible observation points on the lake and the area of the peat bogs. It is also enlivened by important cultural and food and wine events, such as the Lakes Festival held every year in early June.
Staying in a hotel in Iseo means opening the windows and admiring the expanse of water, going out and taking a walk along the lakeside promenade, taking the boat to Monte Isola , getting on the Brescia – Iseo – Edolo railway line and heading in Brescia or in the upper Valle Camonica. It means all this, and much more. Iseo, a country, many possibilities to relax body and mind.
