In the heart of the Tuscia around Viterbo at a little less than two hours from Rome is Lake Bolsena. It is the fifth largest water body in Italy and one of the cleanest in Europe.
A striking territory you’ll experience and love for all its beauty and the variety of sports on offer.
Whatever your passion is, you will definitely have the chance to satisfy it with unique experiences. Sailing trips to admire the splendid palaces and English gardens of Bisentina Island or fantastic diving with the lake bottom that will amaze you for its variety; from a landscape full of ruins to a desert.
If you are not a fan of sailing but still want to try a boating experience, we recommend touring the lake in a kayak. There are so many routes to follow that you’ll be spoiled for choice!
For those looking for a less demanding experience, let’s meet on the pier of Capodimonte where the Fenice and Letizia boats will take you on a beautiful journey.
Lake Bolsena is also great for sport fishing with its 21 species that inhabit the crystalline waters of the basin.
