This is a 5-hour private driving tour around the lake villages
of Bracciano, Trevignano and Anguillara.
Collectively they are the most picturesque and best preserved
territories of the Lazio region.

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 Castello Orsini-Odelscalchi,
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.
