Lake Bolsena’s water is clean and suitable for swimming.
From Capodimonte’s small harbour you can take boat tours of the lake. These often include a stop at the Bisentina Island to offer passengers time for a swim. Or you can rent your own motor boat, rowing boat or canoe at the bathing establishments of “Il Platano” and “La Bussola”.
Sailing, fishing, cycling, hiking and riding are among the many activities available on and around the lake.
There are many springs of hot thermal water in the area, some freely accessible scattered in the countryside, others in organized beauty centers such as the Terme dei Papi and the Terme di San Sisto in Viterbo and those in Saturnia in Tuscany, all at a short drive from Capodimonte. .
The beaches of the Mediterranean are also not far. Montalto di Castro is at a 40 minute drive, while it takes only a little longer to get to the Tuscan beaches of Capalbio and la Feniglia at Monte Argentario.
In the pleasantly warm evenings of the Summer, most towns of the Tuscia region are animated by festivals, feasts and events. Don’t miss the concerts held in churches and piazzas and organized by the Festival Barocco di Viterbo and the Tuscia Opera Festival, as well as the Est Film Festival held in Montefiascone.
Many towns and villages hold food-and-wine festivals to promote the region’s typical food products.
In August, don’t miss the Fiera del Vino wine festival in Montefiascone when the wine producers open up their cellars for wine tasting in the historic center of this charming town.
