  • Great views!

    After a short stroll along the lakeside and into the lower part of this hillside town, Suvanki and I decided to have lunch beside the lake - Lago di Iseo. Quickly, we opted for Bar Centrale as this was one of very few options that were actually lakeside.We decided to eat up on the rooftop terrace which has great views over the lake (although it was...

  • Lakeside Restaurant with roof terrace

    This restaurant is on the lakeside in the centre of Lovere, we'd walked past it, expecting to find more lakeside restaurants away from the centre, but in the end we decided that the roof terrace looked quite enticing!Lake Iseo is apparently 'full of fish', with the daily catch being sold to the lakeside restaurants, so I was looking forward to...

    Alighting from the bus, we had spotted market stalls lining the lake-side. It was surprisingly larger than I'd thought at first. First of all we wandered around the food stalls - A variety of local products including cheeses, cured meats, fruit and vegetables - all brightly coloured and appealing. We were nearly drooling over the plump...

    On Saturday mornings you will find the town's local market. Stalls offer a selection of goods from clothing to housewares, fruit and vegetables to dairy produce. Great cheeses and fresh fruit.

Lovere Off The Beaten Path

  • Vincenza Gerosa

    On a wall, above a door way, I spotted this marble plaque, which appeared to be in honour of Vincentia Gerosa, I wasn't sure if this indicated where she was born or lived. A couple of attractive bunches of flowers tied with straw adourned the plaque, and there was a bas relief of Vincenza. Well, I had no idea who she was, but since returning home,...

  • Via Brighenti - an old thoroughfare

    Wandering around Lovere, we came across this interesting 'stairway' that linked 2 roads on different levels. The roof was of a traditional design, similar to some that I'd seen in the sotoportagos in Venice.On one of the walls was a framed painting (pic 3) of an angel watching over 2 children crossing a bridge over a river in the mountains. Sadly a...
