Lake and mountain, vineyards and hillside, villas and castles, churches and monasteries: these are the attractions that make the Franciacorta an ideal location for spending a holiday in complete relaxation, but fun and diversions are not lacking. All this, accompanied by the excellent genuine mountain and lake cuisine, infused and marinated with the exceptional wines that have achieved recognition and honours around the world. Of immeasurable beauty, its artistic legacy reveals itself gradually, in the Abbey of Rodengo Saiano, in the Convent of the Annunciata di Rovato and in the Monastery of S. Pietro in Lamosa; it would be a pity not to visit the many small churches that dot the hillside. The Franciacorta region and Lake Sebino offer an assortment of notable destinations, each different and interesting in their owns special way; from Monticelli Brusati where the happy sound of the crystal-clear waterfalls guide the tourist along the bicycle path that leads from Paratico to Brescia. Continuing on, immersed in a truly wild and protected natural environment, we reach the natural sanctuary of the Torbiere (peat moss plantations) of the Sebino, a fine example of preservation of the regional legacy. This land offers suggestive views of itself, in every season. For all those who consider a vacation the best opportunity to pamper oneself and look after well-being and good health, the Franciacorta region is also the site of prestigious mineral springs spas and modern health treatments based on grapes.
At Franciacorta, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, mountain chalets, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
