One of our favourite pastimes is to take Massi's blonde girlfriend around Lago d'Iseo (Lake Iseo) which is just a few kilometres from our house. On the way, we pass Sarnico and Lovere, and scale high up into the hills where the views are the best. This was one of those views in the comune of Marone- can you believe I did an uncountable number of cobblestoned stairs in 4-inch heels? Seriously someone needs to give me a gold star for these feats. I highly advise any tourists or those wanting to come to the lake on a weekend, take a scooter or a motorcycle if you don't want to stay in traffic for hours upon end. If it's your first time venturing out to the little cities around the lake, I'd recommend Lovere. It has a great little boardwalk and places to dine next to the lake. It was also named one of the borghi più belli d'Italia. Check it out here.
