Lake Bracciano

Bracciano

Cities and Towns in Lazio

 Lake Bracciano which, with its 57 square kilometers, is thesecond largest of Lazio's lakes, is of volcanic origin, formed in the crater of an extinct volcano. The lake is the destination for a number of important sailing events.

One of the most scenic spots from where to view the lake is that occupied by the Odescalchi Castle. Erected in the latter half of the 15th century by the Orsini, the castle has an irregular quadrilateral form and six cylindrical towers. In 1695 it was purchased by the Odescalchi family, who still own the building. Inside the castle walls, visitors have the opportunity to admire the Papalina Library and a series of magnificent reception halls, such as the Sala dei Cesari, the Sala degli Orsini and the Sala d'Armi. Well worth visiting: the castle kitchens in which there is a fascinating collection of old cooking utensils, and the secret garden: a hanging garden of 1800 square meters which faces directly on to the lake.

A medieval fiefdom, complete with fairytale castle, gazing out across a lake. This is how Bracciano appears to the many visitors coming to admire this enchanting little town in the province of Rome

In the historic center of Bracciano, characterised by its maze of picturesque medieval lanes and alleyways, there are a number of terraces overlooking the lake. Not to be missed: the Cathedral of Santo Stefano and the Church of Santa Maria Novella, this latter commissioned by the Cardinal Giordano Orsini.

Client Testimonials

As a travel agent, but also a traveler to Italy, thee is no other company I would recommend than the Italy Vacation Specialists. Not only do they really care about what they are doing, they also really know Italy and try to educate many people about ways they can best see the country and not fall into tourist traps.

I have been on 4 trips with the IVS team, firstly when they did my first 2 trips for me and then when I went on their Fam trips for Travel Agents which are educational trips for agents. Nobody does Italy like the IVS team and what I have learned is you can actually save a lot of money by working with this company.
