The lakes of Lazio

Lake Bracciano
The limpid waters of Lake Bracciano are abundant with fish. The lake is very strictly protected against all kinds of pollution, as it represents Rome’s main drinking water reservoir. The lake is embraced by gentle hills and majestic mountains, and its shores are lined with deep green, century old trees. Its long sunny beaches offers many water sports (wind surf, swimming, fishing, sailing, canoeing etc…) and innumerable excellent restaurants and open air cafés are scattered along the shore. Here you can lazily lye in the sun , or choose to swim or windsurf, or again opt for touring the lake on board the Sabazia Boat, thus being able to admire, from a different perspective, the Lake’s three medieval villages: Bracciano, Anguillara and Trevignano Romano, this latter being the gem of the area.

Lake VICO
Lake Vico is located in the crater of an ancient inactive volcano, in the centre of a natural protected oasis which hosts a great variety of eco- systems . The deep green mountains which embrace the lake, are covered by century old oaks, beeches and chestnut trees, joining branches overhead, and gently slope down to the lake shores. The end result is a fascinating live painting of rare beauty. River “Vicano” , originating from Lake Vico, smoothly runs down from the lake towards River “Treja”, and is particularly interesting as it is an artificial river, created by the Etruscans, who excavated its course in tufa stone. Therefore the river runs underground for about 100 meters, and surfaces beyond the hills. The local flora, jealously protected and respected by man, confers an added fascination on this blessed corner of Lazio. Here you can enjoy trekking, hunting, bird watching, horse riding, swimming and sailing, in total peace and tranquillity. And you can crown your day by having a succulent meal at one of the lovely little restaurants on the beach or along the lake shore.

Lake Martignano
Lake Martignano is immersed in a natural park, splendidly secluded. Due to its isolation from the beaten tracks, the lake almost represents a miracle of ecological integrity.

Lake Bolsena
This is the largest lake of volcanic origin in Europe. Here you can enjoy enchanting boat tours on its limpid waters, and sail to the secluded beaches of the Islands of Martana and Bisentina
