DAY 3 – MONTISOLA
Montisola or Monte Isola is a little beautiful island in the middle of Iseo Lake. A mountain in an island …visit it and love it. Magically you will be caught by the fishermen’s villages that time has jealously guarded, protecting them from the habits of those who live frantically nearby cities. Walks in the streets and listen to the water that rocks carefully the naet (old fishermen’s boats). The perimeter of the island measures 11 kilometers and has 12 historic centers: Siviano, Carzano, Masse, Cure, Menzino, Novale, Olzano, Peschiera Maraglio, Port of Siviano, Sensole, Senzano and Sinchignano. In Montisola cars are not allowed and to visit the island is possible only by bicycle or bus. You can walk enjoying the quiet green and spectacular views on the Brescia coast and on the Bergamo coast. At the highest point of the island (600 meters high) there is the Sanctuary of Ceriola. From here the view is astonishing.
Recently (June 2016), it has became famous thanks to the important event of “Floating Piers”, the artificial path on the lake made by bulgarian artist Christo that has attracted a lot of tourists from all over the world.
