While some destinations are known the world over, others keep their charms a little quieter. Lake Iseo is one such example. Lake Iseo offers amazing natural beauty. The deep blue lake is surrounded by lush green mountains, providing the quintessential tranquil spot to see. Lake Iseo is the fourth biggest lake in Lombardy, Italy. It's near to the cities of Brescia and Bergamo, and is also notable for being near to the wine region of Franciacorta.  

Besides providing the perfect spot for a walk or ramble in the hills and mountains, Lake Iseo is surrounded by a good number of medieval towns which include their share of sights, restaurants, cafés, shops and places to stay. If you're visiting Lake Iseo, then it's definitely worth paying a visit to Iseo town. With a population of around 9000, the town offers some fine architecture and some great historical sights. One of the most famous of these is the statue of Garibaldi located in the main square, Piazza Garibaldi. The work of sculptor Pietro Bordini, it's said to be the first Italian monument, dating back to 1883.
