Your car will pick you up at the hotel
and drive to Bracciano's Lake, situated 28 miles north
of Rome. This area is an important
water reserve for the surrounding territory
and it is of volcanic origin.
Bracciano has become popular due to its 15th century
which is where the American movie actor, Tom Cruise,
got married. The castle is open regularly for
guided tours during the summer. Occasionally,
there are celebrations at the site that include weddings
as well as classical music concerts. Our next
stop will be Trevignano, one of the most picturesque
villages with about 4,000 inhabitants. The area
stretches along the north shore of Lake Bracciano, formerly
called Lake Sabatino.
Built on a basalt cliff, the village lies at one end
of a small bay. It was formed by a secondary crater
of an extinct volcano. With the conquest of the villages
of Veio and Caere in 387
BC, the Sabatine region came under the control of the
Romans. They consequently built many villas
there. Steeped in history, today Trevignano welcomes
many visitors with its delightful Medieval
quarter. It is located 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,
another lovely Medieval village of about
12,000 citizens. It takes its name from Angularia, an
ancient Roman villa that was situated exactly
at a bend in the lake's shore. This is a journey back
in time to experience the history and nature
as well as indulging in the appetizing cuisine.
Lunch* will be served in a typical local restaurant.
Sightseeing will continue on the way back
to your hotel.
The tour is for a group
of up to 14 people.
It includes private car transfers and a fluent,
English speaking tour-manager.
