This trip was excellent - a short trip outside of Rome centre you discover amazing scenery. The clear glistening waters of the volcanic lake were just stunning. We kayaked for a good couple of hours but the waters were calm so not too taxing. There was time for a beach stop and pizza. Our favourite trip of Rome

Super relaxed activity to do on a beautiful lake. So calming after a few days of busy Rome. Kayaking was easy and fun. Swimming was lovely. The pick was arranged smoothly. Really nice!
