Tuscia Nature

 

Come to capture the charm and beauty of nature in the Tuscia Viterbese. High up above, beech, oaks, chestnuts and turkey oak; lower down, hazelnuts, olives, vineyards and thick underwoods well provided with mushrooms, and hideaways for porcupines, hedgehogs, boars and foxes. Very famous are the Cimini hills that reach an altitude of 1000 meters and which guarantees shady lanes and scenic asphalted roads make it possible to explore deep into the charming woodlands, full of century-old trees, unfortunately fast on the way to becoming extinct. There are many relaxing strolls or treks that provide direct contact with a still unspoiled nature. All around are delightful towns and villages with renowed works of art, including Soriano nel Cimino, Canepina, Ronciglione, San Martino, Caprarola and Bagnaia. The beechwood of Soriano, is considered a pearl and it covers the highest part of Cimini, where the terrain shows traces of a slight crater-like cavity hearkening back to its remote volcanic origins.

Lake Bolsena
Italy’s largest lake of volcanic origins; there are two islands in the centre of the lake, Bisentina and Martana. Bolsena is well equipped with hotels and camping sites. Lake Bolsena provides everything for those in search of a different kind of holiday, a complete return to nature and with generous, hospitable country people. A ride in a boat to draw along the unspoiled banks of the islands of Martana and Bisentina, fishing with the traditional nets, skimming across the water on skis, these are just a few of the things to do when relaxing after a good meal of local specialities. Several small trattorias have sprouted along its banks, often in old renovated huts previously used by fishermen. Just to the west is a second crater, which is now the small lake Mezzano, a real earthly paradise in a setting of peace and quiet.

Lake Vico
This is the other pearl of the Cimini landscape, this volcanic lake rest in a crater situated at 500 meters of altitude in the Cimini hills. The lake is part of an exquisitely beautiful nature reserve enclosing vast areas of hazelnut groves and large marshlands, habitat of many varieties of waterfowl and also offers a variety of plant life; holly bushes, cyclamens, red lilies, wild hyacinths and several varieties of edible mushrooms, including the Noble Porcino. These supreme mushrooms are renowed for their intense fragance and delicate flavour. This paradise also offers a heaven to foxes, weasels, hares, hedgehogs and boars. Waterfowl, include the great crested grebe, symbol of the park. But more than the geography of the lake, it is the legend behind its existence that captures your immagination. Local tales remind us of the legend of Hercules: the Greek giant arrived in the Cimini Mountains where the nymphs Melissa and Amaltea had fled to escape Saturn’s wrath. Here Hercules met a shepherd who asked him to show proof of his strenght. Hercules stuck his club into the ground with such force that water bubbled up, quickly forming a pool which soon grew into a lake. This episode is depicted in a fresco in the hall dedicated to the Deeds of Hercules on the “ PianoNobile “ or upper floor on the Farnese Palace in Caprarola, about ten kilometers away.
