TOURISM

Lake Bracciano is a large fresh water lake north of Rome in the Lazio region. The main town is Bracciano with its historic castle.

Despite its proximity to Rome, mass tourism has yet to discover Lake Bracciano. The unspoiled countryside around the lake is protected by a large natural park which includes the smaller Lake Martignano (Lago di Martignano). Explore this lovely area on foot, by bike, on horseback or by car. Footpaths cross meadows and woodland, where you can see rare birds. Stop for a picnic along the lake or eat in a trattoria in one of the towns. Try the regional cuisine, washed down with a good local wine. Sit at a bar in one of the typical little squares and enjoy a gelato, espresso or cappuccino before moving on.

The crystal-clear waters of Lake Bracciano are the delight of sailors (small boats only, up to four people), wind surfers, canoeists, you can swim and sunbathe with no noisy motorboats.

Lake Bracciano is 15 km from the sea (20 minute drive) where there are several nature reserves (Tarquinia Salt Marsh Nature Reserve, Macchiatonda Nature Reserve, Macchiagrande Oasis, Torre Flavia Marshland Nature Reserve).

The half-hourly train service from Bracciano reaches Rome in 40 minutes, via a direct line to St Peter's and Trastevere, with bus and metro links to all major sites.
