Montisola Lago d'Iseo - Palm Print Culottes & Peasant Style Boho Blouse

Montisola is a fairly big island in the Iseo Lake (Lago d'Iseo). It is the biggest lake island in Italy as well as in Southern and Central Europe. You can reach it daily via the ferry boat service offered. Main ports for that service are Iseo, from which we parted, Sulzano e Sale Marasino, all located on the Brescian side of the lake, that is the side that is part of the province of Brescia.

Montisola

At Montisola (or sometimes refered to as Monte Isola which is the name of the conglomerat of small villages located on the island) there is a variety of things to do. You can walk around the whole island by foot, or rent a bike to do it. You can enjoy a bath in the lake as there are several points that provide space to put a towel and easy entrance into the water. Or you could visit either the Rocca (a small castle) or the church/sanctuary Santuario della Madonna della Ceriola on top of the mountain that gives the island its name. Personally we haven't been to the church yet, but I've put it on this summers bucket list which I plan to share with you all soon.




If you are ever on holidays at Lake Iseo, I absolutely suggest you take a day trip over to this island. Starting from Montisola they also offer a so called "3 Island Tour" by boat. You will be ferried from the big island over to the two smaller ones which are both privately owned. I don't think you can visit the houses there, but just riding the boat around the lake is an enjoyable experience.

My Boho Vacation Style Outfit

Well there really isn't much to see. Usually my husband takes the pictures of me, but that day he wasn't with us, so I asked my parents. Alas... I'm afraid you will have to do with "Mini Me" pics and gorgeous scenery. I hope you can still get an idea of what I was wearing. It was a great choice for walking along the lake side and at some point dipping my feet into the water. The palm print culottes appeared on the blog before, styled less casual, more chic although I'd really only would have to change up shoes and accessories here to elevate the look. Maybe I will, to show you the difference.
