Great experience! Amazing views and splashing water are a great opportunity to relax and enjoy the moment. Historylovers will be impressed by the remains of an antique village underwater.
Special thanks to Alex, the guide, he was really friendly and shared some curious facts about the lake and Italy in general. Definitely worth doing!

We had a fabulous time paddling around Lake Albano at the end of October. We booked a tour the night before, and Alex picked us up at the metro to drive us to the lake. Alex was a great guide, and we couldn’t have had a better time. The BEST way to relax away from the craziness of Rome. Anyone can kayak, trust me, and you won’t find anything more peaceful than this lake. Just you and the turtles,……and of course Castel Gandolfo looking down at you in the beautiful crystal clear water. Do it, you deserve it!

Absolutely amazing. Me and my wife ( from Britain) visited Italy first week of July. The weather was extremely hot. After a few days of site seeing oh and shopping,I was done for! We found this on Google search and it was just what we needed. Great staff 👍 collected us bang on time at station. Even when we stopped we got a cheeky slice of Pizza. Now not sure if that’s normal. But wasn’t in the purchase of this. Even gave us a tip on a town we could eat and get very drunk without being over charged! Obviously I’m all over that and now it’s starting to turn into a real holiday. Highly recommend for all ages . We are in our 30s and loved it. When I say all ages. I mean I wouldn’t take my dad Whos nearly 80 there. Not unless I wanted to say goodbye or spread him 🤣🤣🤣

We had a great time in Rome! Different from the usual must see places in the city, this walking and eating in Castelli Romani was surprising. Beautiful places and views ( the best sunset ever!). We tried the strawberry pie, typical from the area, so sweet! Lovely dinner, Alex looked like a old friend. Definitely worth it!

I saw this experience a long time ago and it was top of my list to go and do when travel opened up again and it was worth the wait.
Amazing location only made better by Francesco and Valerio who were not only fun and gave some good information on the area they really took care of the group as a whole.
The lake is calm and gentle and every good for beginners but nature needs to be respected and good guides are key for a safe enjoyable and very relaxed experience.
I appreciated the option of a single Kayak being available as being paired with a stranger does not always go well :).
I really suggest you book this if you are staying in Rome so you can see Rome and Lazio beyond they city! I was staying in Castel Gandalfo and also enjoyed getting out there and meeting a really great group.

Amazing Kayaking experience! Would highly recommend, the guide was friendly and very knowledgeable.

Upon arrival the guide provided life jackets, waterproof bag for valuables to take onto the kayak (phone) we then spent 5 minutes going through how we should use the paddle and any questions that we had.

We were then helped into the kayak, single and double kayaks are available and we chose double. We spent the first 5 minutes getting used to the kayak before we followed the guide around the lake. The guide made us feel very safe and reassured us that the kayaks are very hard to flip over, he also helped us and have us tips on the correct and easiest ways to paddle

We paddled and ever now and then we would stop and the guide would explain about the area and history of the lake. We stopped off for lunch at a local restaurant where they had everything ready for our arrival. We had local meats, bread, wine and bottled water. We had Vegans in our party and Vegan food was available on request.

The guide then asked if we wanted to head back or carry on around the lake for a little bit more which is what we decided to do.

It was a beautiful day, we saw turtles in the lake and were guided by a great host. A must when travelling to Rome!

This was one of the best tours we've ever been on. We were picked up from the meeting point by Gianluca and taken to the lake. The kayaking was great, we're moderately fit and didn't struggle. Gianluca told us stories about the Pope's summer residence on the hill, the lake itself and how there are Roman ships sunk at the bottom. We saw lots of turtles sunbathing on the rocks, went for a swim and were even given pizza. An amazing experience 20 minutes from central Rome that we'll remember for the rest of our lives - and they should charge a lot more for it! Gianluca was amazing and really made the day special for us.

Fantastic kayaking experience just outside of Rome. Lago Albano is absolutely heavenly. The water was clear and warm. The instructors were welcoming and very friendly. There was the opportunity to swim in the lake and take in the breathtaking surroundings. The team can collect you from the metro station if you don’t have a car and it’s only a short subway ride from central Rome to the collection point. If you fancy a break from the city I would highly recommend this activity. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Rome.
