The upper Lake Iseo area is found on the northern Bergamo province shore of Lake Iseo, just kilometres away from the cities of Bergamo, Brescia and Milan and from Orio al Serio, Milan-Malpensa and Linate international airports, to which it is linked by an efficient public transport network.
It is a land teeming with art, history, traditions and enchanting landscapes ranging from gentle and sunny hilltops and the virgin pinewood at Bossico to the magnificent upland of Fonteno and stunning spectacle of the Orrido del Bogn, dizzying sheer rock faces plunging into the lake. Countless panoramic views can be enjoyed at Castro and the communities of Rogno, Fonteno and Costa Volpino, the town where the popular cycling track begins with a modern bridge over the Oglio River.
With its marina, the town of Lovere is particularly renowned and the well preserved historic centre is considered one of Italy’s most beautiful with many imposing churches and magnificent palaces. Amongst these, the most important is undoubtedly the building of the Tadini Art Gallery and Academy, which contains several works of fine art by Antonio Canova. There has been growing interest for the “Bueno Fonteno” cave system, for the “Valle del Freddo” (Cold Valley) natural reserve and the wide variety of sports and leisure activities.
