Trevignano lies along the placid shoreline of Lake Bracciano, north of Rome. While it's now a popular getaway destination among hip Romans, it has a history that stretches back to antiquity. Artifacts testifying to its notable past are housed in the town's Museum Antiquarium, with pieces from the Etruscans, Romans, and subsequent periods displayed.
Trevignano is situated in an area historically known as Tuscia Romana, which stradles southern Tuscany and northern Lazio. It has been inhabited since the Etruscan era, evidenced by the impressive necropolis of Olivetello, located just outside town. The whole area is rife with archeological finds that are exhibited in various museums throughout northern Lazio.
Trevignano's historic center sits right on the shore, which is skirted by a tree-lined promenade. In the piazza, the square, solid clock tower that once served as a defensive look-out is also the portal to the charming pedestrian lanes that meander through the old medieval core of town. The church of Santa Maria Assunta preserves a magnificent fresco dating back to 1517. Along the lake you'll find attractive outdoor cafes, pastry shops and tempting restaurants. Trevignano has shops and grocery stores, as well. The lake offers summer fun with its sandy beach where you can also rent kayaks and small boats for jaunts along the waterfront. Ruins of a defensive fortress hunch on a hill above town.
The other towns on Lake Bracciano are worth a looks, as well. Anguillara offers up fabulous frescoes in the Palazzo Baronale, while Bracciano boasts the impressive Orsini-Odescalchi castle, a crenelated castello built in the 1400s and still owned by the Odescalchi, an influential aristocratic Roman family with roots in the Renaissance. It has been the site of celebrity weddings and papal conventions.
Tuscia Romana is a fascinating area to explore. Within an hour you can reach interesting towns such as Sutri (12 km), Viterbo (45 km),Tarquinia (61 km), Caprarola (25 km), and Tuscania (52 km). The other-worldly Etruscan tomb city of Cerveteri is also nearby, and you can easily make day trips into southern Tuscany from here.
There is wonderful GOLF CLUB TERRE DEI CONSOLI in Trevignano Romano.
Despite its proximity to Rome, mass tourism has yet to discover Lake Bracciano. The unspoiled countryside around the lake is protected by a large natural park which includes the smaller Lake Martignano (Lago di Martignano). Explore this lovely area on foot, by bike, on horseback or by car. Footpaths cross meadows and woodland, where you can see rare birds. Stop for a picnic along the lake or eat in a trattoria in one of the towns. Try the regional cuisine, washed down with a good local wine. Sit at a bar in one of the typical little squares and enjoy a gelato, espresso or cappuccino before moving on.
The crystal-clear waters of Lake Bracciano are the delight of sailors (small boats only, up to four people), wind surfers, canoeists, pedalò, anglers or those wanting to swim and sunbathe with no noisy motorboats. (Motors can only be used by the fishermen who supply the restaurants with pike, whitefish, eel, whitebait and other freshwater specialties.)
Lake Bracciano is 15 km from the sea (20 minute drive) where there are several nature reserves (Tarquinia Salt Marsh Nature Reserve, Macchiatonda Nature Reserve, Macchiagrande Oasis, Torre Flavia Marshland Nature Reserve).
Lake Bracciano an ideal base for exploring Rome without being trapped in its urban chaos. The half-hourly train service from Bracciano reaches Rome in 40 minutes, via a direct line to St Peter's and Trastevere, with bus and metro links to all major sites. Or drive to the outskirts of Rome and take the Metro. No wonder lots of Romans have abandoned the city and now commute to work from this area.
This peaceful, smiling lake and its surrounding parks is wonderful in every season. Many Romans have their vacation homes in the Lake Bracciano area, as the ancient Romans did 2,000 years ago, and come here on week-ends year round. Many stay here from late March to the end of October - which is also the popular time for tourists to visit.
This is a good area for dining, as the local countryside produces a rich range of produce - fish and eels from the lake are local specialities, along with nuts and game from the surrounding countryside. In the piazza-cum-car park outside the castle entrance there is a handful of places to eat and drink.
