Monte Isola, the largest inhabited lake island in Europe, is a green mountain in the middle of Lake Iseo.
We will walk around the island along the paths leading from the lake up to the top of the mountain, where Madonna della Ceriola Sanctuary is.
While walking to the sanctuary, we will pass through ancient hamlets, where rural traditions remain intact: artistic churches surrounded by small squares, large houses made in white, local stone, wooden farming tools, porches, courtyards, wonderful views. A rough and simple architecture makes Senzano, Cure, Masse, Olzano and Novale “true historical centres” full of picture-postcard views.
Picnic at the top
Possible swim in the lake at Carzano beach.
8.15am – 8.35pm
ascent: 400 m, descent: 400 m
