Car pick-up will be at the hotel, followed by a transfer to Bracciano's Lake, situated 28 miles north of Rome. This is an important water reserve for the surrounding territory of volcanic
origins. Bracciano is popularly known for the Castello Orsini-Odelscalchi, which dates from the second half of the 15th century. The castle is regularly open for guided tours in the summertime and classical music concerts are hosted occasionally. We will then drive to Trevignano, a most picturesque village, of about 4,000 inhabitants. It stretches along the northern shore of Lake Bracciano, formerly known as Lake Sabatino. Built in a basalt cliff, the village lies at one end of a small bay, formed by the secondary crater of an extinct volcano.
With the conquest of the villages of Veio & Caere in 387 BC, the Sabatine region came under the control of the Romans who built many villas. Steeped in history, Trevignano today welcomes visitors with its delightful Medieval Quarter in a magical setting created by the fresh water of the lake and its limpid hues.
Your driver-guide will then take you to Anguillara, a Medieval village of about 12,000 inhabitants. It takes its name from Angularia, an ancient Roman villa so called because it stood exactly on a right-angle bend in the shore of the Lake.
It's a journey among history, nature and appetizing cuisine. Lunch will be served in a typical local restaurant.
Sightseeing will continue on your return to your hotel.
