Great for swimming

Fresh and quiet a hot summer day. The lake is situated in a volcanic crater so the beach has black volcanic sand. Less crowded than the sea. There are a couple of nice trattorias... read more

This lake is very dear to me because I used to spend there my summers when I was a kid.

Surrounded by wild and step cliff covert by cool forest. You could wall around looping to avoid summer hot or looping for wildilife. Having a gourmet experience in one of the excellent restaurant laing on the lake shore or biking along several MTB track....a pearl few miles North of Rome....

Fresh and quiet a hot summer day. The lake is situated in a volcanic crater so the beach has black volcanic sand. Less crowded than the sea. There are a couple of nice trattorias by the shore.

The lake partly fills a volcanic crater and is surrounded by unspoilt forest with plenty of scenic walks.
