Waiting for Christmas on Lake Iseo

Christmas is in the air; the lights sparkle and the decorations are already placed, the gifts are under the tree waiting for the most magical night of the year. Even the most beautiful villages on Lake Iseo light up during the holidays with unmissable events to fully immerse yourself in the magic that only Christmas can give to young and old.

Come with us in this journey and discover the unmissable events waiting for Christmas.


In the historical center of Iseo the usual "Christmas with taste" markets take place: for two weekends, on December 8th and 9th and December 15th-16th, the center of the most famous village on Lake Iseo dresses up to party with numerous events related to food and the culinary tradition of all Italian regions: Genoese focaccia, taralli from Puglia, Sicilian sweets and typical Trentino Alto Adige delicacies blend together with typically Christmas folkloristic events like the horns muse or traditional songs. An unmissable event for lovers of good food, for those who want to make Christmas gifts different from usual or for those who want to immerse themselves in the typical Italian atmosphere.


Since the beginning of December, the third edition of the "Lovere, il Borgo della luce" initiative has been launched, a project aimed at enhancing the architectural, historical and artistic beauties of the village by projecting over 10,000 square meters of buildings of some of the works of Lover of the American artist Robert Duncan. In particular, the event concerns the marvelous amphitheater of Piazza Tredici Martiri, the Tadini Academy, Piazza Garibaldi, Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II and the promenade dedicated to Lady Wortley Montagu.
The artistic-scenographic lighting will create a magical atmosphere in which the projected works of art will acquire new life and dimension, transmitting, at the same time, new perspectives and views of the ancient village, among the most beautiful in Italy.
Lovere is colored with magic thanks to the ice rink, which will be inaugurated on the day of the Immaculate.


From Friday 7 December 2018 to Sunday 6 January 2019 the lakefront of Sarnico will host the traditional Christmas Markets.
Exhibitors from all over Italy with crafts, Christmas items, local products, gifts, handmade jewelry and quality textiles in the typical wooden houses but overlooking the lake! The market passes through the beautiful lakefront of Sarnico, starting from Piazza Besenzoni, where the spectacular ice-skating rink is also installed: the ideal way to spend a wonderful Sunday with the whole family

These are just some of the events that cheer the days leading up to Christmas, making Lake Iseo and its characteristic villages even more fascinating. Continue to follow us on our journey to discover Christmas events and traditions.
