The province offers the tourist parks, enchanting holiday villages (Lovere), nature oases, spa centres, ski resorts, picturesque lakeshores and riverbanks, solemn Alpine scenery.

Nature is entwined with culture, offering a multiplicity of attractions, accompanied by the rediscovery of old flavours and the search for local food and DOC wines.

Lago Iseo

Lovere is on the west shore of Lake Iseo or Sebino, formed by the River Oglio in the terminal section of Valcamonica. It is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy (see: I Borghi più belli d'Italia).

History - The ruins of a Celtic fort (4th-3rd centuries B.C.) bear witness of the antiquity of the settlement. The Romans colonised the area leaving their mark above all in a large necropolis. The fortified aspect of the town centre dates back to the Middle Ages. Lovere was part of the Serenissima Republic of Venice from 1442 to 1797.

Places of interest - Palazzo Tadini was built between 1821 and 1826 to house Conte Tadini's art collection. It is the seat of the Academy of Fine Arts; it also hosts a modern painting section and important temporary exhibitions.

Basilica di Santa Maria in Valvendra -(246X82 ft) built in the second half of the 15th century ; it is in Renaissance style with Venetian influences.

The Sanctuary - built in honour of the loverese B.Capitanio and V.Gerosa, the founders of the Congregation 'Sisters of Holy Child Mary'.

Chiesa di San Giorgio - built at the end of the 14th century, it houses a magnificent painting by the Flemish painter Jean de Herdt (1657) and the altar- piece attributed to Palma il Giovane.

Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II - Its trademarks are the Palace of the Podestà and the civic tower, on which a fresco of a lion, symbol of the Venetian rule, bears the date 1442.

Museum of Natural Sciences - founded in 1996 by the local council.

Porto Turistico - It is the largest marina on European lakes. It houses a multifunctional amphitheatre, where shows, exhibitions and events take place, besides the public library, sports clubs, bars and restaurants.

Swimming pools - Two indoor heated pools (one for children) and an outdoor one equipped with 2 aqua trails and 3 water slides. People can sunbathe on the green outdoor lawn. Bar service.

Cinema-teatro Crystal - The community-room Crystal is the second multifunctional theatre in the Province of Bergamo with 664-seat capacity and high quality of the shows.

Events -

Sailing and rowing

Inter-regional, national and international Regatta. 'Disvela': project for the different-able.

Spring concert season by world-famous performers at Tadini Academy of Fine Arts.

Painting exhibitions by Italian and international artists at Atelier Tadini.

Theatre season at Crystal Theatre.

"We had an enjoyable stay"

We had an enjoyable stay at Casa Viola recently. We saw a lot of this part of Northern Italy not seen before. It's a very comfortable house, well appointed and easy to run.
There were two drawbacks we had not anticipated. Firstly we were not aware that the second bathroom did not have internal access, and secondly, coming as we do from a rural area of UK, we were rather troubled by the incessant traffic noise.
No easy remedy for either but prospective guests should take note.

Dear Guests,
Thank you very much indeed for your review.

Best Wishes

Four of us spent a week at Casa Viola. We rent homes in Italy every year. Have been doing so for years and have covered Sicily to Piemonte to the Lakes Region. The Iseo area was a delightful surprise.… More

"Lovely in Lovere"

Antonella is a wonderful hostess. Her communication is top notch and quick. The house itself is wonderful; it is fully equipped for a stay of any length. There are more than enough dishes, flatware and cookware for anyone's needs. The shower in the lower floor has better water pressure but the main floor works well enough. The furniture is all comfortable (and I am very picky about beds!) and you can feel at home very quickly. We had our dogs with us and the space is great if you have pets. Everything is fenced in so your pets can have the run of the grounds. There are grape vines and plenty of trees and flowers so you can really feel close to nature. The only problem we had was with mosquitoes but insect repellant took care of that (they were not excessive, just a minor irritation). The views are outstanding and Lovere itself is a cute village with enough gelaterias and restaurants to suit anyone's tastes. I highly recommend Casa Viola and look forward to the day when I can stay there again.

Dear Guests,
Thank you for staying at Casa Viola and thank you very much indeed for your review. Your suggestions are precious. I'll check the water pressure of the shower.
Hope to have you again in Lovere.
All the best.

"Great location with lake views, access to lakeshore and charming town"

Casa Viola has a lovely terrace over looking lake Iseo which gets morning sunshine. House is comfortable and well equipped. Access to the marina and town is very easy on foot. Nice for evening promenades into the town for restaurants. Lovere is a bustling town with many shops and restaurants. Recommend the Restaurant La Campagnolo just at the bottom of the hill. A trip on the ferry to Pisonge on the opposite shore is a nice morning out (market on Friday). Overall a great base for exploring the lakes and mountains. Very friendly and helpful owners.

Thank you very much for your feedback

"Fabulous view, quaint accomodations"

One of the allures of visiting Lovere is the beautiful Lake Iseo nestled in the mountains. The view of this gem from the Casa Viola is breathtaking and a sheer pleasure to wake up to and absorb while sipping a cup of coffe on the spacious deck overlooking the marina. The location is also just a 15 minute walk to the town center. The accomodations are delightful and spacious enough that one can enjoy some privacy generally not accorded in hotel situations. The kitchen was stocked with all the amenities necessary for us to prepare meals and relax at the dinner table. We found both bedrooms to be spacious and include a great deal of storage to unload the suitcase and feel at home. The two bathrooms are are a real plus (especially when traveling with a teenager).
Overall, we found the Casa Viola to be delightful, quaint yet spacious, clean and well kept, and quite reasonable with a view to die for. We shall return.

Thank you very much for your feedback
