We happened across Iseo on our way to Lake Garda, but decided to stay here as we were struck by its charm and accessibility. We subsequently took a day trip to some of the towns around Lake Garda but found it all to be much more touristy and busy. Iseo is big enough to get everything you need and has a delightful waterfront. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes and we found an excellent takeaway Pizzeria, Forno Porta del Campo (on Via Campo). We also spent one night in the 3 star Ambra Hotel which was comfortable (no frills), air conditioning, clean, friendly staff and nice breakfast.
