In a vintage car between vines

Descrizione

An itinerary that combines nature, art, wine and food, driving in the hillside, castles, vines and incredible landscapes.

For two days, you’ll be surrounded by cultural beauties, food and wine in Franciacorta and Lake Iseo: visiting abbeys, monasteries, castles, old houses from the XV century, mausoleums from the XIV century and medieval villages and also local wine cellars, tasting exclusive local wines. Trips and hikes discovering natural beauties, like Montisola, the biggest European lake island, and the “pyramids” of Zone.

Everything while driving a vintage Spider, that you can choose from all the available ones. 


The first day is dedicated to Franciacorta, with a visit to the Rodengo Salano Abbey and its magnificent frescos and suggestive cloisters, then to the Passirano and Pornato castles, incredibly preserved, and the St. Peter in Lamosa monastery, in Povaglio d’Iseo.

Obviously a must is a visit to one of the local wine cellars, where you can taste exquisite wines, named after the territory. Also, you’ll be able to go on walking trips that will make you discover natural treasures such as the falls near Monticelli Brusati, peat bogs of Provaglio d’Iseo or the incredible church of S. Maria del Corno, situated on the top of a hill where you can have a beautiful glimpse of Lake Iseo.

After the visit in Franciacorta, you can head off to Lake Iseo, whose beauties will mark the second day, visiting the old town center of Iseo with the “Casa Quadra” from the XV century and the Mausoleo degli Oldofredi form the XIV century, dining romantically on the lake shore.
You’ll spend the night in Iseo or in an agriturism in the inland and then, during the second day, you can drive along the lakeshore.

First stop Montisola, the biggest European lake island, full of villages with fishermen, famous for their ability to make excellent fish nets.

While driving your Spider, you must make a slight detour on the east side of Lake Iseo to reach Zone and its land “pyramids”, a curious and original geological phenomenon.

The itinerary goes on, on the north side, arriving in Lovere with its medieval center characterized by ancient towers, the church of S.Giorgio and the neoclassical Palazzo Tadini.

The tour will be completed by driving along the lakeshore, tasting every bit of emotion that this itinerary can give while driving a vintage spider.
