Lake Vico Nature Reserve

Lake Vico
The Lake Vico Nature Reserve covers approximately 3200 hectares and boasts areas of great natural interest, amongst them the marshes next to the lake and an interesting forest consisting of the Mount Venere beech wood.
Of volcanic origin and at a height of 507 above sea level, the lake is the highest of its kind in Italy.

Lake Vico
According to legend, Hercules dug a valley as a challenge to the locals. When he did so, a huge jet of water appeared and filled up the valley, thus creating the lake that exists today.
Nowadays, the Nature Reserve features a campsite and horse track and you can also hire bicycles, canoes and pedalos for your excursion of choice. More challenging hikes through the woods allow for breathtaking views.
