Monte Isola (also spelled Montisola) is a island in the province of Brescia, in Lombardy,in the lake Iseo.

Monte Isola ranks as the largest lake island not only in Italy, but also in South and Central Europe. However, many lake islands in Finland, Sweden, Norway and the European part of Russia are larger. The peak of the island at 600 metres (1,969 feet) above sea level is 419 metres (1,375 feet) above the average surface elevation of Lake Iseo (181 m (594 ft)), making Monte Isola one of the highest lake islands in Europe.

Monte Isola is formed by 12 frazioni: Carzano, Cure, Masse, Menzino, Novale, Olzano, Peschiera Maraglio, Porto di Siviano, Sensole, Senzano, Sinchignano and Siviano.

There are two main ports Carzano and Peschieria with a frequent ferry service with the surrounding mainland villages, including Iseo,the main industry on the island was the construction of boats and the manufacturing of fishing nets.
