Here you can visit some ancient ruins and medieval palaces.
Driving along the lakeside road in Vigna di Valle, you can stop for lunch at La Caletta, one of the best local restaurants. The excellent cuisine here is complemented by the beautiful lakefront views.
After lunch the journey continues to Bracciano, where you will visit the Orsini-Odescalchi Castle. The castle was built in the 15th century by the Orsini family, and passed on to the Odescalchis in 1696. The peculiarities of this site included its pentagonal boundary walls, and its manor–house with frescoes by Antoniazzo Romano and other Tuscan and Umbrian artists. The castle has gained modern notoriety as the locale for celebrity weddings like that of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
