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.
