Compared to neighboring tourist destinations Lake Garda and Lake Como, Lake Iseo is virtually shielded from the outside world and remains quiet even during the holiday season, making it an ideal place for a family vacation in Italy.



To truly experience Lake Iseo, a boat excursion to Monte Isola, the largest inhabited lake island in Europe, is an absolute must. The ferry service from Sulzano operates 24/7, even during the winter months. While waiting for the boat, children can enjoy themselves at the playground located next to the ticket office, which offers a splendid view of the island.

Sarnico Lido Nettuno

Another recommended place in Sarnico is Lido Nettuno, which not only offers swimming opportunities but also a great children's playground. While there are no shallow areas for swimming at Lido Nettuno, families can enjoy the green areas and relax at the bar offering snacks and drinks.


Marone - Monumento ai Caduti del Mare

Between Iseo and Pisogne lies the lakeside town of Marone. Marone is an ideal place for hiking and mountain biking tours. Since the 16th century, Marone has been  considered one of the most important industrial centers on Lake Iseo. 


Today, Marone is famous for its olive groves, which has earned it the nickname "Oil City". There is a beautiful and well-maintained olive park behind the Monumento ai Caduti del Mare in Via Caduti del Marre 53, with a very nice and protected playground. Mountains and lake views plus adjacent to a bar/restaurant make it excellent for a family break, if you are passing through this area of Lake Iseo.
