City life, you know, offers a lot, but a sweet escape on the weekend è what you need to be able to recharge your energy. Lovers of the nature, of the borges, of the slow tourism that live in the cityà, this post è for you: today we suggest a location full of charm, a a few km from Bergamo, Brescia, but also from Milan.
We are in Lovere, a village nestled in the Orobie bergamasche park overlooking Lake Iseo. Because the lake, with its romantic, twilight atmosphere, is the perfect autumn muse. And Lovere the ideal village to spend a weekend in peace and relaxation.
Starting from this magnificent village, we have thought of a route that includes many points of interest on Lake Iseo, all to be discovered: with friends, as a couple, with the family and whyé no, even alone!
BEAUTY AND HISTORY
Lovere, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, located between the upper Sebino and the entrance of the Val Cavallina has Celtic and Longobard origins. Walking through the alleys of the village we recommend you to stop and visit the Church of Santa Maria in Valvendra, the largest church in the diocese of Brescia.
Wanted as a votive shrine dedicated to the Virgin of Grace by the families of the village, who had become considerably rich thanks to trade. The interior is divided into three naves: the central nave is entirely frescoed by the Brescian Floriano Ferramola, the lateral naves, covered by cross vaults, present false architectures that host figures of prophets and sybils.
RELAX GREEN IN SPA
Taking a day to visit the territory of Lake Iseo means deciding to get in deep contact with nature, and begin to detoxify from the hectic and stressful pace of the cityà. And what better way to do it, if not letting yourself be pampered in a nice SPA?
The area is home to many, and you can easily find the perfect one for you. With a lake view, of course!
