Trains of desires towards lake and among the villages

Spring are closing in and the desire of out-of-town sundays grows, better if spent on a historic train, with different final destinations. Lake Iseo, for example, also with a ride on a boat or tasting the typical products of the Lombard tradition. All this is possible from May until December with the Italian Touristic Railways (F.T.I.) with the Lombard sections of Lower Sebino Railroad and Camuna Touristic Railroad, in collaboration with FS Foundation, Ferrovie Nord, Lombardy Region and with the support of Italia Holiday and other entities. The "TrenoBLU. Touristic trains to the Lake Iseo... and not only" initiative, this year at its 25th season, always includes departures from Milan, especially towards Lake Iseo and its surroundings, without forgetting other interesting places of the region, scenario of curious events and delicious, mostly gastronomic. And the best part is that the events will be held alternately with historical steam trains, towed by a 1922's puffing locomotive - the legendary 625-177, called the "Miss", now almost one hundred year old - with its typical centoporte carriages, with classic wooden benches of the 30's and with diesel engines of the 60's. The trip will take place mainly along the two railways that arrive at Lake Iseo: the Palazzolo sull'Oglio-Paratico Sarnico Touristic Line, reactivated in 1994 thanks to the initiative of FBS, Trenitalia and RFI, WWF, local authorities and private companies and the Brescia-Iseo-Pisogne Line. For those who wish, they' re almost always available even some Full Package Offers including train journey, boat excursion, a typical lunch in restaurant and village tours. First above all Mount Isola, at the center of Lake Iseo, a natural oasis in which the movement of machinery is banned. A 2018 News is the Lake Maggiore Summer Train, on 10 June, as the Autumn Scents Train in the Oltrepo Pavese, on 30 September. Here stand the enchanted villages of Fortunago, Zavattarello and Varzi, seductions out of time of a precious Italy.
