Beautiful, peaceful lake. Warm, clear water. Good place for all ages. Our 1 year old was very happy toddling around.The only disappointment is that if you want to go for a walk you're slightly limited to the beach part.

We were staying in Orté - but wanted to swim without driving to the coast. This find was a treasure. I'd suggest taking the time to find locals and ask where the best public swim beach is - but we simply drove into the private parking lot of a beachside cafe and asked if we could park and enter the...

Pure, transparent water in this ancient volcanic crater makes it the best place to swim near Rome. I've never seen it too crowded like the sea beaches get in Italy. There are restaurants serving fresh lake fish (pike-lucio, perch-persico, whitefish-coregone) in many delicious ways, right on the shore, so you can swim in the lake, sunbathe on the black volcanic...

One of the most beautiful lakes in Italy, still a natural reservoir, wonderful limpid waters, lots of outdoor activities and surrounded by astonishing woods. Close to many historical towns and sites, it is in the heart of Tuscia region and only a few kilometres north of Rome. A real gem!!

Spent 2 weeks (August and September) in the vicinity and swam regularly in the lake. (The lake is in a volcanic crater and black sand on the beach). The water was clean and warm and no motor boats are allowed (except for the boat yard when testing repairs, and this did not happen at all when we were there), only... More

This lake is very dear to me because I used to spend there my summers when I was a kid. It is surprising how the lake has kept its natural beauty intact during the years, how great the local management was to spare it from cheap touristy places and constructions. The lake is still simple and welcoming, with nice beaches... More

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.

It's a gorgeous lake with views that stagger... and if you have lunch at the restaurant that flanks the main beach; you'll be treated to the eerily human sounding Mynah bird that greets guests with his cheery CIAO!

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