The lake tour

 

Located less than one hour north from the eternal city, Lake Bracciano is one of the most amazing natural sites in Lazio. Famed since Etruscan times, this volcanic formation has a 35 Km circumference hosting some of the most enchanting attractions in the region. Castles, Medieval villages, fishing boats, archaeological excavations and forests are all there to be enjoyed.
On this tour, we will go hunting for very special food over a 4-day programme. Guests will meet locals, buy the best fresh and organic produce and cook together back at the enchanting Villa Clodia. The 18th century villa has 11 very elegantly furnished rooms and a stunning view over the lake. Villa Clodia is the ideal location to relax, cook homemade cuisine,
get to know the best Italian wines and discover Italy through the eyes of local people who really love their country
