Rome (Civitavecchia) Lake Bracciano Excursion Reviews

Visit the remarkable Lake Bracciano, also home to the well-known Castello Odescalchi in Rome. Because the use of motorboats is prohibited, the lake one of the cleanest in all of Italy. So come and take a dip, and enjoy!

This was one of my favourites. We decided not to go into Rome as it was a long drive and a lot of walking around in the heat. This trip took us into the Italian countryside, to a winery, where we got a quick tour of the place and then sat down to sample a couple of the wines and some bread, cheese and meats. Then we were driven to a small village on the shores of the lake. We had some free time to wander around the market or get a coffee or a gelato. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Finally we got on a motorised cruiser to go across the lake. The bus picked us up from there and took us back to the ship. Read Less

This would have been a two- or three-star, but the wine tasting at the end turned out to be a lot of fun with some great camaraderie. No one wanted to leave.

4 hour tour, transferring from Rome to the CIVITAVECCHIA criuise port. Toured Mideviel Castle Odeschali, village of Bracciano, Lake Bracciano, Quaint village of Cieri and ate lunch at a wonderful Italian countryside restaurant. Our driver and guide, Savino, was truly a gem...professional, pleasant to talk with and so informative about all the sights. RomeCabs provided a service in hiring an English guide for our castle tour and it was such an incredible day. Favorite tour of our trip! Read Less
