The medieval town dominated by an imposing castle is famous for its volcanic lake and quiet atmosphere.
Bracciano is both the name of a pleasant lake and a medieval town overlooking it, famous for the majestic Odescalchi castle. Built by the family Orsini in 1470, the stronghold became a Renaissance residence where lavish banquets and feasts were often held. Still privately owned, the castle is accessible for tours and mostly refurbished with period furniture. It also displays a collection of ancient armours the kids usually enjoy.
The borgo of Bracciano is a relaxing town with paved narrow alleys and little squares where is nice to get lost. It is also renowned for its gastronomy, including a local truffle.
