Itineraries



Bike wandering countries on the lake

We go down to the town of Riva di Solto through the old town with narrow streets of old fishermen, we pass to the inlet of the singular Bogn Zorzino, regional geological site, then walk along the scenic coastal road coming to Castro that cross bringing in Lovere, we pass for most charming, historic city center and the waterfront can also visit some prominent buildings, we go over Lovere Pisogne using minor roads between fields and along the bank of the river Oglio. Let's move on to the church where the Romanino left wonderful paintings, cross the beautiful old town, then on his lakefront. Now we walk the path "Vello Toline" the pearl of the lanes on Lake Iseo. Once in Marone we return by boat to Riva di Solto and from there to Zorzino.



For info on ferry schedules for the return of Riva Solto visit the following website:
http://www.navigazionelagoiseo.it/ (Unfortunately, until March 28, 2015 there are links between the bank and Marone Bergamo). 
Or you can take the path up to Iseo and Sarnico (1.30 hours) planning the return by boat or by train (by this means only between Iseo and Pisogne) or complete around the lake knowing that the stretch between Sarnico and Riva di Solto is on the road (not too busy) and tunnel sections (2.15 hours from Marone).
