It was an eerie feeling to look down from the road vista point at the lake considered by the ancients to be the entrance to hell. BUT, that said, it's just a lake and not that much to see. So if you have to make...More

This beautiful lagoon(?) formed by a volcanic caldera is very peaceful. It is a good place to take a picture especially from above. Unless you stop at a cafe, it won't take long.z

This spectacle will take you back into the Roman times. The lake is roughly circular, measuring 2 km (1.2 mi) in circumference and 60 m (213 ft) deep.

You can have a nice 2-mi walk around a lovely, peaceful lake, and enjoy the ducks who call it home year 'round. On the way, you'll pass the ruins of the Tempio di Apollo. It's not restored, but seeing it the way it is helped...More
