  • Maybe I chose the wrong time of year to visit this location, the fact is that the Lake was dry and the shore a pile of stones and mud. The Lake is nice, but didn't give me special emotions.

  • The lago di Barrea is a gem nestled in the mountains, it is an artificial lake, but seems to have been there forever and creating a collection with the villages that surround it (Barrea, Villetta Barrea and Civitella Alfedena) unique and wonderful. Go visit it. .. Deserves it!

  • The countries around the Lake lago di Barrea (Barrea, Villetta Barrea and Civitella Alfedena) were a pleasant surprise. Ideal for those who want to spend a vacation surrounded by nature and discover ancient villages. The Lake has several places where you can get wet and there are also some areas with playground. Till sunset views of the Lake from the village of Barrea is truly spectacular!
