Discovering the Macchia Grande (Great Wood) of Manziana

In the part of Etruria located in Lazio, between Lake Bracciano and the Tolfa Mountains, you can discover a magnificent oak wood and a singular example of the ancient volcanic activity in the area.
Directly on the Via Braccianese, just outside the town of Manziana an unpaved road provides access to the Macchia Grande woods.

After going through the gate, you go down to the right to the broad meadow of Prato Camillo, a favourite location for many movies including Roberto Benigni's Pinocchio, where from late spring until summer you can see the brightly coloured bee-eaters. Continuing along the Strada della Mola, you come to a stretch of the ancient Via Clodia, which led to the facilities of today's Baths of Stigliano over the nearby Ponte del Diavolo.

Further on, you see the ruins of the old Manziana Mill, built in the 17th century. Going over Via dei Pontoni and Via per Sasso you reach the Caldara, a broad depression with the volcanic phenomena characterising the Tolfa area. According to a legend, this is the place where the formula was conceived for the mythical Philosopher's Stone, capable of transforming lead into gold. After a small birch wood, you come to a spring where a little geyser of hot water spouts out of the ground.

What to see:
Bracciano (8 km from Manziana), Castello Orsini Odescalchi with its cylindrical towers dominating the town and lake. Canale Monterano (a couple of km to the west), with the remains of the dead city of Monterano.

Lake Bracciano

The beauties of nature and the landscape, historical and cultural aspects, and the archaeological and artistic heritage all make Lake Bracciano a very popular tourist venue.
The lake, which forms a water reserve for Rome, boasts crystal clear waters that are ideal for bathing and for a number of water sports such as swimming, sailing, windsurf, canoeing, dragon boating and diving.
Canoeing and sailing are the most popular sports practised on the lake, as we can see from the many clubs located on its shores.

All cycling lovers, including those less interested in competitions, can take a ride all the way around the lake. A convenient cycling path is now being completed, and is available for some stretches near Trevignano.
The only difficult climb (just a few hundred metres) is the one leading to Borgo di Vicarello, a picturesque cluster of rural houses with a single small traditional-style trattoria.

The zone between Lake Bracciano and Lake Martignano is crossed by very many unpaved roads, an ideal place for excursions by mountain bike and on horseback.
Then there are many specialities of local cuisine, with fish being the main protagonist.
The most appetising items are eel and filet of perch, whitefish, broccoli, mushrooms, game and white wine, prepared and served in the many restaurants around the lake.



Bracciano - Martignano Regional Nature Park

This is the park of the volcanoes, or rather of the extinct volcanoes. Both Lake Bracciano, large and heavily settled, and the smaller Lake Martignano, occupy the bottom of a crater of the ancient Sabatino volcanoes, which reached its maximum activity about 400,000 years ago.

Nothing survives of the past consisting of explosions and earthquakes in today's peaceful landscape of wooded hills set like a crown around the lakes where sailboats and canoes ply.

The lakes are an excellent place for birdwatching. Walking on the shores or travelling on a boat, with binoculars, we can observe numerous species of birds such as moorhens, rare varieties of duck such as red-crested pochard and the Aythya nyroca, species found in the north such as the kingfisher and the Gavia arctica, predators like the brown kite that nests in this area. The fish living in the lakes include pike, royal perch, catfish and roach.

Anguillara Sabazia, Trevignano Romano and Bracciano, dominated by the impressive Orsini-Odescalchi Castle are the towns located on the banks of Lake Bracciano. The atmosphere of Martignano is completely different; it is set among solitary fields with access on foot only, along a little road going down to the bottom of the green bowl.


Terme di Stigliano

The waters of the Terme di Stigliano (Baths of Stigliano), located in Canale Monterano, 50 km from Rome, are among the most iodized in Europe, and emerge from various thermal springs at a temperature of between 36 °C and 58 °C; the main springs are Bagno Grande (39 °C), Bagnarello or Grotta (53 °C) and Fangaia (55 °C).
The thermal treatments consist above all in baths, mud packs, showers, inhalation, steam, aerosol and massage. The facilities also have a sweating grotto where the steam emerges from hot springs at a natural temperature of 51 °C. The thermal mud used in the spa is obtained from the mud excavated from silica and clay formations found there, and then left to ripen with the hot spring water.

The Stigliano water, due to its physical and chemical characteristics, is especially suited to the treatment and prevention of a number of diseases. Treatment at the Baths of Stigliano, undertaken during the week for the entire opening period, is available under conventions with the National Health Service.

Vejo Park
What a fate for the lands which once rivalled Rome. In years past they formed a southern strip of Etruria, an enemy to be defeated which only Furius Camillus succeeded in defeating in 396 B.C.

They are now a green lung for the capital's inhabitants looking for rest and relaxation and clean air at a short distance from the metropolis. Veio Park stretches out for fifteen thousand hectares to the north of Rome, between Via Flaminia and Via Cassia, and includes the so-called Agro Veientano within an area where the natural and historical-cultural features blend together in a landscape of great value.

Nine municipalities lie within the park: Campagnano di Roma, Castelnuovo di Porto, Formello, Magliano Romano, Mazzano Romano, Morlupo, Riano, Sacrofano and the 20th District of the Municipality of Rome. With a surface area of 7,000 hectares, the latter alone covers almost half of the protected area.
The woodland is rich, especially with Turkey oaks, but there is no lack of strips of holm oaks and poplars, willows and alders in the damper areas. There is also a wide variety of fauna which includes some species of special naturalistic interest such as, for example, the spectacled salamander, rat snake, arno goby, back kite and kingfisher.

Thanks to their specific unspoilt nature and beauty, some areas are considered to be of importance at a community level such as Valli del Sorbo in Campagnano. The influence on the landscape of the works created by the Etruscan and Roman civilisations is unquestionable, with a large number of archaeological finds being recorded. The presence of a necropolis and residential settlements is of great interest, such as the site of the ancient Etruscan town of Veio and the Roman Villa of Livia in Prima Porta.


Lazio -eternal wonders.

This is the cradle of occidental civilization and Christian culture, of lakes and legends, of thermal spas and history, of ancient roads and verdant hills. Lazio is a region of central Italy bordered by the Tyrrhenian Sea,traverse by the waters of the Tiber River and mainly characterized by hills and mountains, while it slopes down near the coast.
This region has different yet complementary features, unblemished sceneries and spectacular horizons among the towns. Visitors can enjoy incredibly beautiful views, like Villa Borghese in Rome, the Italian capital.
Villa Borghese is the most famous city park for walking or cycling. It represents an unparalleled experience between art, containing the Borghese Gallery with its masterpieces, and the nature surrounding it, including lakes and ancient trees. Lazio is also full of spas, whose history is bound to the several thermal water springs that had great success in the Republican Age and continued to be used in the Imperial Age. The Romans built sumptuous thermal baths and we can still admire their vestiges around the territory; first of all, the Terme di Caracalla (now in a state of magnificent ruins) in the heart of Rome.
Tivoli is another spa, but its fame is mainly due to the artistic beauties it contains, like Villa D'Este, with its splendid fountains, gardens and magnificent palace of the Renaissance, and Villa Adriana, the ancient residence of emperor Hadrian. The two villas are on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
For those who prefer the sea, this region offers some pearls such as Gaeta, Sabaudia, San Felice Circeo, Sperlonga and the Islands of Ponza and Ventotene, while those who love lakes will enjoy Bracciano, an enchanting stretch of water encircled by the intense green of the surrounding nature and overlooked by a magnificent 16th-Century castle. Walking along the Medieval streets of the villages by the shores of the lake, visitors can feel that these places are not only bound to the Roman Empire, but were also the theatre of various historical periods. Lake Bolsena, in the area of Viterbo, gives us an example of it, as it is the biggest volcanic lake in Europe and encloses two islands, Bisentina and Martana. This lake combines the charm of lush nature and splendid view,s with the history and traces left by the Etruscans, Romans and successive populations.
Finally, mountain lovers will not be left disappointed by Lazio, thanks to the ski resorts of Terminillo, Livata and Campo Staffi. This land evokes memories of unrivalled places and intense emotions, but also a clear perception of the relentless march of time, that justifies the attempts of our ancestors to challenge time and leave us their remembrance.
The provinces of the region are: Rome (regional capital), Frosinone, Latina, Rieti and Viterbo.
