Lake Iseo is the fourth largest lake in the region of Lombardy in northern Italy and is located near the cities of Brescia and Bergamo, making it a perfect mix of both worlds, a natural paradise for the nature and outdoor loving tourist, but also an excellent base from which to take city trips to sample Italy's urban vibrancy and splendour. The lake is located across two Italian provinces, those of Bergamo and Brescia. The lake boasts an outstanding natural beauty despite the north of Italy being typically highly industrialised and the road which leads north up to Switzerland is carved into the side of the mountains. In the middle of the lake stands Monte Isola, which boasts the status of the largest island located within a lake in the whole of Europe.
