Visited the museum and bird hides reached via boardwalk across the marsh Saw many common and rarer species. For a longer visit take the signposted cycle path which starts beyond the hotel and which follows the edge of the Lago towards the Puccini Villa.

Despite paying €110 for a guide, we only saw saw coots, moorhens, grey heron, buzzard, cormorants, black headed gulls, Cetti's warbler, great crested grebe, manky mallard ... Pathetic ! Armed with a bit more information, I discover that the lake is polluted from chemical run-off from local farms. Being such a large lake I suppose it's such a big job... More

We took our 4 and 2 year old here and to the roman ruins next door. They loved watching the fish and birds and the opportunity to have a run around. We walked through the little museum (two rooms in a house) and the guide was helpful. The boardwalks rails are big enough for a child to crawl under but... More

On the Internet we have seen pictures of that nature and we were excited. Yes, the photos do not lie and it's really beautiful. But the whole journey takes about twenty minutes, maybe few minutes longer. But since the entire trail written only in Italian, so we did not understand anything. You can go there, but do not expect any... More

Living "next door", I visit the lake on a weekly basis. The WWF oasis has done really a great job on the boardwalks allowing you to walk just up to the edge of the lake and hidden in observer huts you can watch the wildlife . Over the years the boardwalks have been increased to various routes now, Go early... More
