Lake Bracciano (Lago di Bracciano) Tours and Activities

Lake Bracciano (Lago di Bracciano)
Thanks to its proximity to Rome, Lake Bracciano (Lago di Bracciano) has long been a popular retreat for city dwellers while remaining largely off the tourist radar. The medieval lakeside villages of Bracciano, Anguillara, and Trevignano have waterfront promenades and the lake waters are ideal for swimming, sailing, and water sports.

The Basics
In addition to taking a dip or sail on the lake, visitors can explore the rolling countryside around Lake Bracciano via the hiking and cycling trails running to the Macchiatonda Nature Reserve and the Tarquinia Salt Marshes. Lake Bracciano is a popular excursion from Rome, and joining a Lake Bracciano day trip that includes stops at the historic Orsini-Odescalchi castle and lunch is an easy way to experience the lake and environs without the hassle of driving. 

Alternatively, consider joining a longer tour of four of central Italy’s most beautiful lakes—Bracciano, Bolsena, Vico, and Trasimeno—or enjoying the view from above by booking a paragliding experience or hot air balloon flight over the lake.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Day trips include time to explore the lakeside towns of foot, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothes.  
  • The waterfront promenades are accessible to wheelchairs, but some of the town centers are steep and difficult to navigate.
  • A lake excursion is a fun break for kids and can include a dip in the water and walks along the shore.
  • Lake Bracciano and its surrounding towns are very picturesque, so be sure to bring your camera.

How to Get There
Lake Bracciano is just about an hour outside of Rome by car or there are regional trains from the Roma Tiburtina station to the town of Bracciano that take about 90 minutes to make the trip.

When to Get There
The lake is particularly beautiful in the spring and fall when the surrounding countryside is lush, but it you are hoping to take a dip in the water, time your visit for summer. 

The Orsini-Odescalchi Castle
Lake Bracciano is also known for its Orsini-Odescalchi castle, built during the second half of 15th century by Napoleone Orsini and almost perfectly preserved. The castle was the site of the 2006 nuptials between actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
Address: Province of Rome, Lazio, Italy
