Everyone has heard of Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, but few know about the beautiful lake and historic region that lies in the heart of Italy, not far from the popular Tuscan and Umbrian tourist spots and it remains one of Italy's best kept secrets.
Located on the borders of Tuscany and Lazio, the lake is formed in the crater of an extinct volcano. The waters are crystal clear and teem with fish, and are ringed with crescents of fine volcanic sandy beaches. The capital of the Lake is Bolsena itself. Once the Etruscan settlement of Volsini and medieval town of miracles, it is famous for its gardens and annual flower festival.
The nearest mainstream airports are Rome Fiumicino and Ciampino and if you are driving, both have good access to the Rome ring road. Being newer, Rome Fiumicino is better organised, although being quite a lot bigger means actually getting through and out of the airport can take some time. At Ciampino, take the bus into the central station or find the courtesy bus that takes you round to the car hire area, as it's a 15 minute walk otherwise.
Some may prefer Pisa or Perugia, as they are smaller airports and the extra journey times offset by the lack of delays in the airport itself.
