What to see in Sarnico
It is a lovely place to visit on a day trip from Bergamo and you can enjoy walking at the side of the lake or taking a boat trip.
There are also plenty of things to see in the medieval part of the town, with its cobbled streets climbing away from the lake.
Just above Piazza Umberto in Piazza San Paolo off Via Tresanda is the 15th century church of San Paolo, while another church of interest, with a lakeside setting, is the Parrocchiale di Tours (pictured), an 18th century baroque style church with a marble altar.
Il Museo Civico Gianni Bellini has works of art from the period 1500 to 1700 on display in a restored 15th century palazzo.
To see a villa in the Liberty style take a look at Villa Faccanoni built by Milanese architect Giuseppe Sommaruga on the Via Vittorio Veneto leading out towards Predore.
Lago Iseo is the seventh largest lake in Italy and has Monte Isola, the largest lake island in Europe,at its centre.
