Stay in Sarnico and enjoy views of the lake
Sarnico on Lago Iseo is within easy reach of Bergamo and the airport at Orio al Serio. Set among mountains, it is the perfect place for a peaceful break.
Although it is at the foot of one of the most beautiful lakes in Italy, the resort of Sarnico is still not well known to tourists.
Under an hour’s drive from Bergamo, Sarnico can also be reached by bus or train.
But if you decide to stay for a few nights, try the Hotel Sebino in Piazza Besenzoni at the side of the lake, which has rooms with wonderful views over Lago Iseo.
The hotel has been converted from a former convent and has an elegant restaurant, Il Chiostro, which has been established in the old cloisters.
