The projects of world-renowned visionaries Christo and Jeanne-Claude have always attracted visitors from far and wide. The Floating Piers at Lake Iseo, connecting two islands normally only reachable by boat, was no exception. The temporary, public art installation was constructed with 70,000 square meters of yellow fabric, carried by a modular floating dock system of 200,000 high-density polyethylene cubes. Some 65,000 people per day made the journey to Lake Iseo for the installation, which closed on July 3, but there are countless reasons to stay on at Lake Iseo.
An ideal day trip from Milan 60 miles away, Lake Iseo is equally easy to reach from Brescia and Bergamo. The Barone Pizzini winery offers a range of opportunities for wine-lovers visiting the region to indulge in a day (or two!) of pleasures. Enjoy a guided tour of the breathtaking landscape with an expert wine guide and relax over tastings of some of the winery’s choice selections grown in the distinctive terroir of Franciacorta. The tastings are accompanied by organic Grana Padano cheese and locally cured meats- only the best to bring out the unique and delicious taste of our wines.
