Route Guide

This route runs along the water mirror of Lake Albano and can be traveled by bicycle. The entire ring measures about 11 km and is an easy walk, thanks to the practically non-existent altitude difference. The very first part of the itinerary is asphalted, but soon gives way to a real path that could be a bit muddy on rainy days. You will cycle through a dense forest that reaches the shores of the lake. In several points you can go down to the height of the water which is incredibly blue and clear. In addition, you can stop and relax with your feet in the water.
