DAY 5: Mines San Aloisio Tassara & Iseo on Lake Iseo
The Miniera San Aloisio Tassara provides a unique Mine Trekking Adventure guided tour of about 2.5km underground to observe a motionless world preserved intact for 30 years. The Mine was the richest and most extensive siderite mining concession of the Trompia Valley. It was the last iron mine of the valley, but was finally closed in 1985. Its heyday was around 1936, when the mine had great importance for the fascist government at the dawn of World War II. Protective helmets with lights will be provided while proper hiking shoes and clothing suitable for subsurface temperatures is advisable.
DAY 6: Lake Iseo
Iseo Town in the southern end of Lake Iseo in northern Italy has a population of 9,000 and sits in the Italian region of Lombardy in the province of Brescia. Most people have heard of the Italian Lakes: Como, Maggiore and Garda are world famous for their beauty, culture and charm. For centuries the rich and famous have come to their shores to rest, relax and recuperate. Yet arguably the most spectacular lake has been left in relative obscurity. Lake Iseo is the quintessential ‘undiscovered gem’. Iseo Town probably has one of the highest concentrations of clothes shops per square meter in the whole of Italy. From designer boutiques to cut price outlets it would be hard to come away without finding something. Our Friday Tour will depart at 8am and return by 3pm.
