A client durng the winter had told me how beautiful Lake Iseo was and that it's much less touristy than Como and the like. So Kevin and I have made the somewhat confusing and frustrating at times trip by train. We have had to make so many changes I've actually lost count of places we have hopped on and hopped off! Thank goodness Kevin is much …
What a lovely place, oozing architecture and old Venetian style - it was lovely! We drove, it took around 40 mins and headed straight into the tourist area. Parking was limited & after asking (we didn't want another tow truck!) a helpful couple on their moped showed us where to park in the centre. We were right next to the street where it is said that Juliet's balcony is (although I gather the balcony was built in the ...
... harbour would be good.... By the time we got back across the lake the wind was now strong, we had taken in a lot of sail and the waves were building. Soon the engine went on and the sails were down and we were heading for home. We had a rather exciting time picking up our mooring buoy but soon a very welcome rib arrived to take us to shore. In fact Charlie stayed aboard to help the boat man moor up ...

We celebrated with a nice meal in a restaurant overlooking the lake drinking Prosecco Rose, very nice.
Tomorrow we have hired a yatch for the day and will go for a sail on the lake. It's due to rain again later so I hope we get lucky with the weather.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAC Hotel Brescia by Marriott
The hotel is clean,modern and smart. The views of the cemetery and old industrial estate may not to be everyone's taste but are quite picturesque at dusk. Walking into town is not very romantic but is quick and very close to the train station. The buffet breakfast was varied and good. The bathroom is tres contemporary although personally I hate glass bathroom doors-especially those with gaps!
Overall a really good stay and I would use the brand again.
