Many Italian-bound travelers will head to the famous beaches of Amalfi, Maremma, and Venice this year.
Others will find their way to popular fresh-water destinations like Lake Como or Lake Garda.
But here in Franciacorta, we’ll enjoy summer at Lake Iseo, one of Italy’s best-kept secrets.
If you’re heading to Italy for a summer vacation and you want to find an off-the-beaten-track and less hectic beach spot, have a look at this wonderful English-language online tourism portal devoted to life on Lake Iseo. It’s brimming with lodging and dining info, as well as resources for water sports, events, etc.
