A short cinematic 5K aerial drone video of the Lake Iseo or Iseo lake (Italian: Lago d'Iseo) is the fourth largest lake in Lombardy, Italy, fed by the Oglio river. Lake Iseo is in the north of the country in the Val Camonica area, near the cities of Brescia and Bergamo. The lake is almost equally divided between the Provinces of Bergamo and Brescia. Northern Italy is known for its heavily industrialised towns and in between there are several natural lakes. Lake Iseo retains its natural environment, with its lush green mountains surrounding the crystal clear lake. There are several medieval towns around the lake, the largest being Iseo and Sarnico. A notable tourism sector has emerged. Sarnico is the home of the famous luxury brand Riva, maker of some of the most stunning boats in the World. The roots of classic Riva yachts go right back to 1842, when a young Pietro Riva began repairing and building yachts on the Lake. But it was his great-grandson, the legendary Carlo Riva, who had the vision to create a range of wooden-hulled speedboats that were to become the epitome of the jet-set era of the 1950s and 1960s. Carlo Riva was inspired by the products of the American yacht builder Chris-Craft, for which he was an agent, and he used Chris-Craft and Chrysler engines in his classic Riva yachts. Some of the most famous Riva boats bare names such as: Tritone, Aquarama, Junior, Aquariva, Rivamare. A road has been carved into the side of the mountains that travel to circumnavigate the entire lake. In the middle of the lake there are Montisola island, Loreto isle and San Paolo isle (which compound the Monte Isola municipality). There is easy access via the regular running lake ferries. The Floating Piers, an art installation by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, was open to the public at Lake Iseo for 16 days in June and July 2016 and it was a massive success, bringing a huge public to the lake.
