Rome and the Lakes of Lazio Region



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.
The Lakes
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.

Bolsena on the border of Lazio and Umbria, and between Viterbo and Orvieto, Bolsena is the largest volcanic lake in Europe. Excellent for water sports, it has English style gardens on Bisentina island and wild nature on Martana Island. Spend time on one of the local fishing boats or cruise aboard a traditional Bolsena Lake boat, day or night. Food lovers will enjoy a vast assortment of restaurants along the coast specializing in local fish, rigorously accompanied by Bolsena area olive oil and wines.
A most Intriguing Trail is Sentiero dei Briganti used by Smugglers and Outlaws
Bracciano This lake is located further south, between Rome and Viterbo provinces and close to the Lazio beaches. The three major communities around the lake are the city of  Bracciano, Anguillara Sabazia e Trevignano Romano. Overlooking the lake is the Orsini Odescalchi castle, famous for vip weddings; this 15th century structure is also a museum. Nearby is the Air Force Museum with over 60 planes, motors and other equipment.
