Lago di Bolsena Things to Do


    I must recommend to anyone visiting Lake Bolsena a great guidebook called "Bolsena - Everything You Need to Know" by Fleur Kinson. My wife and I found this book REALLY useful when we visited Bolsena last summer. We found restaurants and even Roman ruins that we would never have found without it! It explained the whole history of the town,...

  • recommended reading

    I found a BRILLIANT book which covers every imaginable aspect of Bolsena and the lake - the only comprehensive guide in English I could find anywhere. It gave me all sorts of insider information, suggested walks, and really made me laugh, too! It was called Bolsena -Everything you need to know, and was by Fleur Kinson. I don't know if they sell it...

Lago di Bolsena Restaurants

  • Fish fresh from the lake

    When walking along the path that circles the lake, you may come across a very unassuming seafood restaurant with tables on a sheltered patio to the right of the entrance. If so, you're lucky enough to have found a fantastic seafood restaurant which I unfortunately never noted the name of :( There is a local atmosphere despite it being popular with...

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

  • Through the looking glass

    Gazing out a winter window to the snow-covered boughs is a real novelty for me and I would spend minutes just marvelling at the view. At times I thought how odd it must seem to those accustomed to cold climates whereas I was in my late thirties before I ever saw snow.Thus it was that the cyclamens sitting on the window sill provided a colourful...

  • Those terracotta roofs again

    Let's face it, wandering around the back streets of Italian towns is the reason half the tourists go there.I couldn't help but contemplate that, just a few kilometers down the road was the second largest church dome in Italy and yet here in Bolsena must be a candidate for the smallest. Cute, isn't it.

  • The castello

    Coming down the hill into Bolsena, you can't avoid seeing the castle on its prominent position overlooking the lake.As castles go it's only average but, if you love castles as I do, you have to pull up and have a look. Unfortunately, it was undergoing some restoration work while I was there and was closed.
