The Territory

Bergamo – Upper Town (Città Alta)

can be reached in 20 minutes, and is a must-see. The century-old cable car, the ancient fortress and the old square, the splendid heart of the city where one of the oldest Italian libraries is located and the 52-metre tall tower. However, it is the descent to the lower town that allows you to fully take in the panoramic view of the Venetian Walls.


Lake Iseo
a gem of rare beauty with wonderful facets reflecting the blue of the sky and the red of the summer sunsets, set in a precious crown of mountains and hills embellished with a whole range of colours and ancient incisions.
In 1749, Lady Wortley Montagu said, “This is the most romantic place I have seen in my life



a small town overlooking the lake, a place with a long tradition, a name known all over the world thanks to the link with the great Riva speedboats. Sarnico is this and much more, a town with almost 7,000 inhabitants overlooking Lake Iseo, halfway between the province of Bergamo and that of Brescia: the town was built exactly at the point where the waters of Lake Iseo flow towards the plain through the river Oglio.


Mount Isola

the largest lake island in Europe. Being here is equivalent to taking a leap back in time, since there are no cars, except those of the parish priest, the doctor and the mayor. Only public transport is allowed on the island, as well as motorbikes owned by the inhabitants and bicycles, (you can bring your own or rent one on the island).
