Get out of your bed early to see the stunning sunrise. It's amazing, waiting for the sun on your back coloring the lake in pink colours. You can see the sunset in the lake. What a perfect place to be.

We arrived right in the middle of a local festival - Corpus Domini 27 March - 3 June. Lucky us, as it made the town lively and festive. Also, there was a brass band

This was an unplanned, unexpected joy. Lago di Bolsena is the town and the lake - "the largest volcanic caldera lake in Italy" as at least five people proudly told us. The town is quiet except in mid-summer (we were there in late September), so...More

Yes the lake is very clean and is an enjoyable place for a swim.. probably better than the local coastline - head to the township of Bolsena. It is an amazing region with plenty to see and do.
