Excellent for a nice, calm and relaxing day. Clean waters, a few nice restaurants that rent canoes, pedal boats and water ski gear and boat. A lot of fish if you like fishing.

If you need to escape from the caos of Rome and you do not want to find the other half of Rone on the nearest beaches of Lazio,choose Lago del Turano. Super relax in a georges place,wondeful colors.
