Lake Bolsena, il Lago di Bolsena - The amazing jewel in Lazio

Located in the foothills of the hills of Tuscany, surrounded by archetypal villages,the area around Lake Bolsena is the perfect example for environmentally-sensitive tourism in Italy.

The area around Lake Bolsena owes its virginity to its good location away from the tourist hotspots of Itay. That is why every tourist who visits the area for the first time can feel the spirit of discovery. On a hike around the lake you can see idyllic villages and towns, charming cypress forests and best of all: only a few tourist. The reason for this is, among others, the really good work of the local tourism organisations whose work is a good example for the development of environmentally-sensitive tourism in Italy. For example, building on the banks of the lake was radically limited by restrictive regulatory measures in the mid-90s, so you have access to the lake shore at almost every point. In addition, the local agro-tourism providers, mostly Full-time farmers, get a lot of support, so they can guarantee organic farming.
