It is in the north of the country in the Val Camonica area, near the cities of Brescia and Bergamo. The lake is almost equally divided between the Provinces of Bergamo and Brescia. Northern Italy is renowned for its heavily industrialised towns and in between there are several stunning lakes. Lake Iseo remains one of outstanding natural beauty, with its lush green mountains surrounding the crystal clear lake.
A road has been carved into the side of the mountains that travel to circumvent the entire lake.
In the middle of the lake is Monte Isola (or Montisola). There is easy access via the regular running lake ferries.
Around the shore of the lake are some small towns:
