  • Beautiful in any season! Great for picnics and for nature lovers. I will go there often and every time I'm struck by the beauty of this place. Definitely recommend to inspect it.

  • Despite the rain and grey weather, the Lake offers a glance really wonderful. Through the city of scanno, following a route on foot, you can admire it from above in its characteristic shape of a heart.

  • Absolutely beautiful
  • We discovered quite by accident when visiting the beautiful Scanno and it was a pleasant surprise. Family with 3 children we covered the "path of the heart" by visiting the Hermitage of s. Egidio (where there is a spring and a convenient fontana) and reached the place where he photographed the heart-shaped lake. The excursion lasted for about 3 hours (forward, back and many stops) but it was a beautiful experience. You can swim and rent bicycles and rickshaws and there is a playground and a picnic area. Really very nice. I recommend it!!

  • I am sorry to give a bad review, the Lake and the landscapes are wonderful but there's not a chance to walk in tranquility on the Lake because there is a bike path or pedestrian except for short sections.

  • Lovely Lake. Parking at the price of 1 euro per hour or 5 euro for the whole day. Pedal boat ride Board, 10 euros an hour, 5 euros 30 minutes. You can also rent bikes of various styles. Nice for picnics and fun for young and old.
