Even these ducks have staked out there own spot - a lady chased them into the water, they watched her leave, and they came back exactly where they were before they were so rudely interrupted.
I have never seen - I have never imagined - a garden beach! Well, this is what you will find at Castel Gandolfo's Lake Albano. It is unique, imaginative, and satisfying. Lakeside lounging, dipping, sipping, in the midst of garden flowers, plants and greenery. Meander along the lakeside path below Castel Gandolfo and you will find it.
Enjoy an apertivo and snacks on the adjacent pavilion.
Find "your spot" - make it your own - you will see that the locals do this as you notice people tucked away in little niches all along the lake. Some with picnic goodies - some fishing - lovers sheltered by the lakeside foilage - kids kicking their feet in the lake - many locals who have carved out their own little private space. It is inviting...........
The most romantic night spot on the Lake - La Perla offers extraordinary food, music and ambiance. The facility is huge and caters private parties, weddings, conferences, etc. On the second floor there is a beautiful room for dining and dancing until the wee hours.
An unforgettable Italian experience.
Dress Code: People like to dress nicely here.
This fellow was serious - he had three fishing rods going and seemed determined to catch something!
These locals have staked out a perfect spot for lounging on a stationary slanted dock in the lake and watching the boats drift by. And we have a good spot staked out for watching them watch the boats - an apertivo in the shade of a local cafe.
You will see many people out there - in kayaks and canoes. Lake Albano was the site of Olympic watersports some years ago.
