This is a gorgeous place! You can take the trail from the lakeshore to the top of the island, or you can take the bus part-way up and walk the rest. Either way, it's gorgeous and worth doing. The ferries run frequently so you don't...More

Pretty cool island. Good place to take the younger kids (aged 7+). Our 5 year old had fun, but it did not relate to the island. So many cool small restaurants around. The ferry service worked great.

It’s a nice tour which takes an hour and only costs 3,50 per bike. Bring swimming clothes to take a dip in the lake when you go in summer time and temperatures rise till 30’ (we did not and regretted it ). We enjoyed the...More

We took the ferry over to the island, and walked around for a bit, but there really isn't much to do, maybe it was the time of year we were there late May). There are lots of restaurants, and a small park to enjoy, and...More

We took a pleasant 20 minute ferry ride from Iseo to Monte Isola. The ferry stops first at Sensole where you can walk to the larger village of Peschiera. The walk along the waterfront is very pleasant and you can admire the locals gardens full...More

Beautiful picturesque island unless cloudy. Can get humid and muggy. There are no cars on the island so be prepared to walk. We landed in Peschiara Maraglio, a small fishing village. Food is expensive here. Limited ferry service. Bring your walking shoes. Think hard before...More

The place is quite nice but locals drive their bikes and motorcycles thinking that they have to win a grand prix! Pay attention while walking, especially if you have babies!

Monte Isola was definitely on our list of places to visit on our recent stay in Sale-Marasino at Lake Iseo. This lovely small island was so easy to access by ferry from Sale-Marasino to Carzano which operates 24/7 every twenty minutes, once on the Island...More

The island is beautiful and the views from the ferry going from Sarnico to the island are breath taking. Just beware of the ferries. We brought a return ticket for 2 adults and 2 kids from Sarnico to the island. We got off at the...More
