Lake Martignano, is a small lake in Lazio, Italy 15mi north-north-west of Rome, in an extinct crater or maar.OverviewIn ancient times Lake Martignano was part of southern Etruria and called Alsietinus Lacus. Augustus drew from it the Aqua Alsietina; the water was hardly fit to drink, and was mainly intended to supply his naumachia (lake made for a sham naval battle) at Rome, near San Francesco a Ripa, on the right bank of the Tiber, where some traces of the aqueduct were perhaps found in 1720. The course of the aqueduct, which was mainly subterranean, is practically unknown: Frontinus tells us that it received a branch from the lake of Bracciano near Careiae (Galera): and an inscription relating to it was found in this district in 1887.There is a lawn beach, lake-side cafes and restaurants, and walking tracks.Nearby townsCampagnano di RomaBraccianoAnguillara SabaziaTrevignano RomanoOriolo RomanoSutriCapranicaCesano

  • I spent a couple of days here in this lake in early September. The setting was quiet and relaxing. 5/6 euro cost on cots. If you bring your towel you can put on your lawn but after a pole that marks the boundary of the settlement. Me and my boyfriend we were made to lift and move. Although there were very few people and we don't bother anyone, but for goodness sake, they are working. To get to the factories we took a minibus (€ 1 one way and € 1 return per person) to the large outdoor parking of cars and motorcycles (5 € to leave the car, € 3 If after 3 in the afternoon, I think). He left us at one point. From there we had to walk a long, steep descent full of holes for about 5 minutes, that uphill are 10 hahaha. Then we finally made it.

  • A small lake pollution yet on the outskirts of Rome, where you can spend pleasant time outdoors. Possibility to rent equipment (chairs, umbrellas, pedal boats, etc). Suitable for children of all ages, offers the possibility to eat on the beach at an affordable price. From the parking lot where you have to park your car you can take a shuttle to get you to your destination or take a pleasant walk of about one kilometer.
