Lake Iseo, Italy: Take your bet­ter half to drink wine, climb a moun­tain, and drink wine

Bloomberg Businessweek (Asia) - - CONTENTS -

Two hours northeast of Mi­lan, Lake Iseo is of­ten over­shad­owed by the big­ger, ritzier, Ge­orge Clooney-er Lake Como. But Iseo is much more quaint. De­com­press and re­con­nect with your bet­ter half against a dra­matic back­drop of vine­yards, me­dieval cas­tles, and the roughly 5-square-mile, 1,400-foot-high Monte Isola, which soars up from the mid­dle of the lake. This sum­mer, all eyes will be on Christo’s next block­buster art in­stal­la­tion, The Float­ing Piers, his first out­door project since 2005’s The Gates in New York. For 16 days in June, the public will be able to walk on water for al­most 2 miles atop 200,000 float­ing cubes cov­ered in glit­ter­ing yel­low fab­ric.
