    Lake Bracciano Best Seen on the Ferry

    Ferry Boat at Bracciano dock

    The ferry boat ride to the three towns - Bracciano, Anguillara, Trevigno - is the very best way to see the lake and these villages. Each town has its own personality and you can explore them all.
    We had the most interesting tour guide, Elena, on the boat who had many tidbits of interesting information that you will not find in tour books - her commentary was in Italian. You might ask if she is available.

    Castello Odescalchi

    by rita_simoes Updated Oct 12, 2007

    There are guided tours to the castle starting every hour (it's not possible to visit the castle on your own). In august 2007, when I went there, the ticket costed around 7€.

    It's a very pleasant tour, with wonderful views to the lake, and the castle itself is very interesting. (photos of the rooms are not allowed)

    Inside the castle it's also possible to hold... your wedding! :-) They rent the building for gala dinners, private ceremonies, conventions, etc. Well, maybe one day when I'll be rich....

    Visit Anguillara Sabazia

    Alluring.

    Perhaps the prettiest of the three villages on the lake, Anguillara Sabazia (or simply anguillara) is a real gem, especially at night time.

    Walking along its cobbled streets and getting lost in its cosy atmosphere is a very nice way to spend a summer evening.

    Also, you should try some "anguilla" (eel) based dish. As you have guessed, eels give the village its name.

    Highly recommended.

    The Odescalchi castle

    by baronedivandastad Written Jun 27, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The bedroom view must be nice.

    Bracciano (the village) is dominated by the massive Odescalchi castle, which was built by the Odescalchi family in several stretches starting from around 1450.

    The castle had several important guests during its lifetime, including a couple of popes. It is open year round, and works as a museum and as a conference place. If you have enough money you can even take your friends there for dinner.

    Nowadays, the castle is one of the better preserved in Central Italy, and the view over the lake from the outer courtyard is absolutely spectacular.

    Fun in the Sun on Lake Bracciano

    Lakeside at Bracciano - and this was Ferragosta!

    This water is so inviting and, in contrast to the Rome beaches in Ostia and Feregene, you can always find a spot that is not crowded.
