- The Lake itself is stunning with deep blue colours and romantic panoramas.
- Charming medieval towns surrounding the lake - Anguillara and Trevignano Romano.
- The most famous castle in Italy - Castello Odescalchi: for events or just to visit!
Best time for a Lake Bracciano wedding: year round, the climate is fairly mild.
Lake Bracciano is only 19 miles from Rome and one of the most enchanting parts of the Lazio region. A vulcanic lake, Bracciano is the 8th largest lake in Italy - large enough for sailing. It is surrounded by charming medieval towns such as Trevignano Romano and Anguillara. Anyone planning a wedding in Italy should consider getting married in Bracciano. This is where Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes chose to celebrate their wedding at the magnificent Odescalchi Castle. Besides the castle there are medieval towns, historic villas and unique churches and wedding halls for civil ceremonies. Outdoor civil ceremonies are possible in Anguillara.
Without a doubt, the Castello Orsini-Odescalchi is the most noteworthy historic venue in the Lake Bracciano area. Overlooking the Lake (the views are amazing!) it is a perfect example of a Renaissance fortress. It can host very large events as well as couples only blessing ceremonies.
Exploring this romantic lake is highly recommended and easy to do as it is so close to Rome.
