    Guided Tour of Bergamo, Franciacorta and Lake Iseo from Milan

Guided Tour of Bergamo, Franciacorta and Lake Iseo from Milan

  • City: Milan, Iseo, Bergamo
  • Duration: Approximately 12 hours

Discover beautiful Bergamo, taste Franciacorta?s sparkling white wines and take a scenic boat ride on Lake Iseo on this full-day private excursion that departs from Milan.

Overview

This tour is particularly suited to those who appreciate the pleasures of the good life, where food and wine rises to the level of art. The morning is dedicated to discovering the countless artistic treasures of Bergamo, while the afternoon is given over to verdant vineyards of Franciacorta and the deep-blue waters of romantic Lake Iseo.

Bergamo is characterized by its peculiar division into two parts: the upper town, still standing as the fortress of the past, and the lower town, mixing ancient churches and palaces with modern shops and elegant cafes. A funicular connects the two and the tranquil upper town is almost completely free of cars, making it the perfect place for a walking tour accompanied by your knowledgeable guide. Grouped around the spacious, central Piazza Vecchia are the town's major monuments: the medieval Palazzo della Ragione, the impressive Cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore, flanked by the Baptistery and the splendid, marble-encrusted Cappella Colleoni, built in 1476 to honor the celebrated Renaissance condottiere Bartolomeo Colleoni. Music lovers will enjoy the visit to the museum and theatre dedicated to Gaetano Donizetti, one of the most famous native artists of Bergamo. An abundant lunch in a traditional restaurant concludes your morning in beautiful Bergamo.

Franciacorta, known worldwide for its sparkling DOCG wines, is an extraordinarily beautiful area of northern Italy, particularly suited to viticulture. It is considered by many to be the only area of Italy where sparkling wine production reaches levels comparable to those of French Champagne. This scenic region offers a lot more than fine wines; it is a place full of history and ancient villages, hilltop abbeys and sanctuaries, unspoiled nature and great food just waiting to be discovered. Here you will enjoy a guided tour of a typical cellar and a tasting of the best culinary products from Brescia, accompanied by a flute of Curtefranca wine.

Not far from Franciacorta is the third destination of your trip: Lake Iseo, Italy's seventh largest lake with the large, bike-friendly island of Monte Isola floating in the lake's blue depths and reachable by a short ferry ride. After a guided visit to the town of Iseo and a panoramic boat ride on the lake, your pleasant visit to this enchanting little corner of Lombardy will conclude with dinner in a typical pizzeria.
