Isola San Paolo
At the north and south end of Monte Isola, Lake Iseo, there are two very small islands. I would have loved to have visited them, but they are private, so I could only photograph them from a far.
To the south is the Isola San Paolo, there once was a monastery, built in the 12th century but later demolished. It also serves as a platform for a stunning villa.
As we were walking along, I noticed some large boards, mentioning floating piers from the main land to Monte Isola and also around Isola San Paolo, so I took some photos of them to investigate them at a later date.
I found that…….More than 40 years ago artist Christo developped the idea for the Floating Piers. After he found Lago d’Iseo in Northern Italy being the perfect place for this work, it went quick. More than 1.3 Million people had a striking haptic and visual experience walking on the orange Nylon tissue across the lake……. how amazing that would have been, although I think it might have been a little busy.
To the north of Monte Isola is a much smaller island, Isola di Loreto with a 19th century villa occupying most of it.

I found a notice board with some details about the above island, which looks quite interesting.
