Hotel Lovere Resort & Spa ****
Located in the most northern part of Lovere and just a short distance from one of the most beautiful Medieval villages in Italy, which the hotel takes its name from, Hotel Lovere offers guests relaxing stays on lago d'Iseo. The Fata Turchina Spa, which is onsite, boasts a swimming pool, massage rooms, a gym and many aesthetic treatments. Furthermore, the hotel can host workshops and conventions in the meeting room for up to 50 guests, whilst the Pinocchio restaurant, which looks out over the lake, serves up the best dishes from the local and international cuisine. Guests can also make use of the hotel's mountain bike hire service to admire the beautiful surrounding landscapes of the lake, or they can sail on the lake, which does not require a nautical licence, directly from the hotel's small jetty.

Some of the hotel's services and facilities:
The town of Lovere has preserved many traces of its long history: Ancient Lovere shows signs of the passing of eras from the Etruscans, Romans and Celtic Gauls, whilst Medieval Lovere boasts a beautiful Renaissance style centre with the symbolic dome of the Basilica di Santa Maria, and the modern part of Lovere shows signs of Napoleon and the birth of steam navigation on the lake. Surrounding the lake and just a short distance away are many points of interest including villas, open areas of greenery and much more. Lovere and Bergamo are close by and the latter's old town can be reached via a funicular and it is certainly worth seeing Piazza Vecchia, the Duomo and Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. Brescia also has a lot to offer including the castle, Roman theatre, Tosia-Martinengo Pinacoteca and Santa Giulia museum.
