If you are going to see the Christo new art installation FLOATING PIERS
at Lake D’Iseo , Italy….you better be prepared.
Is going to be VERY crowded. Cars are not allowed, so you have to find alternative ways to reach Sulzano, where is the departure. Here how to get there
Here a 5 stars way to organize your visit and to spend (very appropriate word, considering the very high budget you need for Hotes) your FLOATING PIERS EXPERIENCE.
Since You ‘ll be the area I strongly suggests to visit the legendary Berlucchi Cellar , the vinery and Palazzo Lana
Berlucchi is definetely the Italian champagne ( or even better than the french!)
They have 4 different limited people tours from Euro 15.00 up . The tours include a wine tasting and the local food tasting. Reservation a must.
Here info http://www.berlucchi.it/en/special-events/
Here the itinerary I suggest
Train to Brescia (from Milan is about 1 hour)
If you have suitcases get off in Brescia ( which is also e beautiful town) and check in at beautiful Hotel Vittoria
If you don’t have suitcases get off in Brescia and get a local train (same station, usually 10 minutes waiting time) ) from Brescia to Borgonaro (20 minutes and a very nice panorama view) get off at Bordonaro and walk (10 minutes) to Palazzo Lana for your visit Berlucchi experience.
So, You will have a glimpse of the land of Franciacorta ( famous for its wines)
After the Berlucchi experience, get train to Sulzano,, walk to the Piers. (is a short way and train is the best way to get there, no car will be allowed)
Enjoy the Piers , then get the train back to Brescia and then to your prior location.
Another sleeping possibility would be L’ Albareta Relais&Chateaux, venue with restaurant of Gualtiero Marchesi , without doubt the most famous and most recognized Chef in Italy.
It ‘s a dream location, the trip will be a little more complicated. because you have to arrange with a car to get there and then to get to the Piers. To enjoy Christo new creation, no tickets will be necessary to see, enter and enjoy its art. The project will be completely free of charge.
