Arguably one of the most beautiful lakes in central Italy and just an hour outside the city of Rome, Lake Bolsena is a fabulous location for a romantic Roman getaway or the not-so-traditional family vacation to Rome. The lake is volcanic but it’s perfect for bathing and water sports and located near an old village that’s full of beautiful and interesting history. Being located so close to Rome, the weather is pleasant all year round . There are plenty of charming options for accommodations, such as a Visconte Palazzo with incredible rooms and frescoes. Take a walk along the Francigena, the road the ancient romans used to make their way France.
During the summer months, the lake is the perfect place to relax away from the chaos of most of Rome’s beaches, or play in the water (equipment for water sports are available to rent).or head to the beautiful Umbrian town of Orvieto for a walk in the small city center, it’s all just 15 minutes away. In fact, you can reach several interesting little towns, such as Val d’Orcia which is just about 60 Km north. Countess Concierge can organize special wine tastings, Olive oil tastings, a visit to a peonia garden (a very unique experience!), local restaurants and other off-the-beaten-path history tips.
