Lake Iseo is a little paradise located between the province of Bergamo and Brescia. Surrounded by an indisputable charm, you will be spellbound by the old villages and splendid piazzas. A place where nature and culture blend harmoniously.
A small interesting fact, do you know which is the largest natural lake island in Italy and also the highest in Europe? Monte Isola.
There are so many routes which will allow you to admire this wonderful territory: cycling around the lake to the challenging Presolana pass on a racing bike; as well as the Bossico Plateau and the Conca della Presolana on fat bikes.

Casoncelli

The Casoncelli or Cazonei as they are called in Brescia are very popular in the whole of Lombardy, but every area has its own ingredients. As always they are eaten on special occasions, they are a type of ravioli with a meat-based filling, breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley, garlic, cooked and served hot, seasoned with parmesan cheese, melted butter and sage.

From cured meats to cheeses

One of the most prestigious salami meats is Monte Isola. Rustic cooking still exists here allowing us to savour this delicious delicacy. Instead during the winter period, cotechino and spiedo Bresciano (spit) must be on the table. There are many mountain dairy huts and farms in the mountains where they produce cheese including Silter PDO, Salva, Casolet, Formaggella just to mention a few.

Wine

The whole meal can be accompanied by the excellent Franciacorta D.O.C.G., the most popular sparkling wine. But not only is this wine produced, in fact, there are also excellent red wines such as Rosso Bronzone and Valcalepio Rosso DOC.
