Tour around Lake Iseo

The track starts from Iseo on the cycle lane in via per Rovato road and continuing south towards Clusane, a charming fishermen’s village famous for a typical dish: “Baked tench with polenta”. Staying in the cycle lane, you reach Paratico and  cross the bridge leading to the lakeside and to the characteristic historic centre of Sarnico, “La Contrada”. Taking on your right, towards Predore, the track, partially on cycle lane partially on the road, leads you to the first tunnel till Tavernola Bergamasca. Here the coast gets wilder and a second tunnel allows you the reach Riva di Solto. After leaving the village, along the road to Castro (tunnel), you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the “Orrido del Bögn” with vertical rocks overhanging the lake. A few kilometres, always on the road, separate you from Lovere, the last town of the Bergamo district coast and a member of the prestigious club of “The Most Beautiful Villages in Italy”. Continuing on the coastal road, you reach Pisogne, an ancient medieval village. The church of Santa Maria della Neve is worth a visit for its extraordinaries frescoes by Romanino. Leaving the village, when you arrive in Toline, you follow the suggestive cycle-pedestrian path on the lake to Vello. A slight climb then brings you back to cycle lane that crosses the villages of Marone and Sale Marasino to stop in Sulzano. You can admire, on the right, the view of three islands: Loreto, Monte Isola and San Paolo. At the rail crossing, you’ll find again the cycle lane. Now, only a few kilometres separate you from Iseo, where the tour ends. Its historic centre with charming alleys, squares and lakeside promenade, invites to a pleasant stop. During the summer season it’s possible to make an easier  tour of the lake by boat, bringing your own bycicle.
