Vico Bolsena and Bracciano
Rome the Capital of Italy is a trip inside the contemporary reality of the eternal city, visiting 20th and 21st century sites and museums. A journey that begins with the Rationalist style of the EUR and Foro Italico districts, through the working-class areas of Garbatella, Quarticciolo and Pigneto from the twenties and thirties, as well as newer architectural challenges such as Renzo Piano’s Auditorium and Richard Meier’s Dives in Misericordia Church. Just a few kilometers outside the city you can go boating, windsurfing or canoeing on volcanic lakes, walk or bike in the colorful countryside, taste unique typical foods and experience the history, traditions and ancient culture among Etruscan ruins and in medieval castles.
Vico as with most lakes in this region Lake Vico is of volcanic origin; it is surrounded by cane fields and is horseshoe shaped. Mount Venere is 800 meters high, with several walking and biking trails. At the "well of the devil" - a semi-vertical grotto – there is a great view of the entire lake. Watch out for foxes and wild boar! The coastline is great for bird watching, cycling and water sports - windsurfing, sailing and canoeing. Overlooking Lake Vico is Caprarola with a XVI Century Farnese Palace; the Sagra della nocciola occurs here at the end of August; an opportunity to taste local chestnut based specialties, sweets and ice cream.
