Insider tip

Bloomberg Businessweek (North America) - - Etc -

Monte Isola has been in­hab­ited since Ro­man times. Char­ter a boat from Bellini Nau­tica (bellinin­au­tica.it/en/; $1,689 for a half- day) and dock at the vil­lage of Carzano, or take the ferry, which makes mul­ti­ple stops and is a lit­tle cheaper at $2.50. Ei­ther way, once on the is­land, you can hike to ru­ral set­tle­ments and fol­low a path to the top of the peak. Stop for lunch at La Foresta (foresta­mon­ti­sola.it/ris­torante.php) for lo­cal dishes such as dried lake sar­dines with po­lenta.
