Lake Iseo, also known as Sebino, is one of the Lombardy basins. Divided between the province of Bergamo and that of Brescia, it is still unknown to mass tourism and this is also the reason why is excellently appropriate for practicing cycle-tourism. The tour of Lake Iseo can start by any villages on its banks, but for convenience we will start it from Riva di Solto, on the Bergamo bank, where you can park your car and enjoy an ice-cream on your way back to celebrate the venture.
The tour of Lake Iseo runs through the whole circumnavigation of the Lombardy lake in 66 km of cycle paths and mixed secondary roads that during sunny weekends and high tourist season can be averagely busy.
The Parenzana rail was an old narrow gauge railway that connected the city of Trieste to Buje and Poreč, Parenzo in Italian (whence the name Parenzana!). Built by the Austrian-Hungarians in 1902, it was the longest narrow gauge railway on the 760 mm. Ruins of the railway are still visible today and one of the most interesting tourist activity in the area is walking through the track (entirely or partially) by bike!
