Today I would like to tell you something about one of the most beautiful Italian Lakes…
Nestled in the greenery of Franciacorta, Lake Iseo is a reference point for international tourism and it is the ideal place for wedding ceremonies and receptions.
It is wonderful by day thanks to the green slopes of the mountains that seem to be born from the water and rise up to touch the sky with their tip. It is stunning at night with the glare of lights reflected in the calm waters and their majestic tranquility. It is really a jewel of nature!
