Discover the beauty of Bracciano and its lake.
Take a panoramic drive through the gorgeous Etruscan countryside to Bracciano, a quaint hill town, followed by a scenic boat cruise along pristine Lake Bracciano, formed within an ancient volcanic crater. At Bracciano, tour Castello Orsini-Odescalchi, a well-maintained 15th-century castle that has hosted several high-profile weddings. See how tranquil Lake Bracciano mirrors its beautiful surroundings as you take a leisurely boat ride to Trevignano, one of the medieval towns dotting the lake’s coastline.
