Beautiful to live all the day. You can go through the path of the mountain and arrive to a fantastic view from the mountain on the lake (starting from the hotel Roma, 45 minutes no more). Try! And...

This lake is beautiful and so blue! It is in the shape of a heart. We loved it here. Great place to walk and eat lunch! There is a trail to walk to see the lake from the top!

Lake Scanno, the largest natural lake in Abruzzo ⚓️ Lake Scanno was formed naturally following a landslide of Mount Genzana, which blocked the course of the Tasso river, flooding the surrounding valley and giving rise to the lake 🤔 Lake Scanno is surrounded by a series of mysteries and curiosities, which make this place even more suggestive. But beware not all stories are true. 💚 First of all, there is to dispel the myth that Lake Scanno has the shape of a heart. Actually that is not the case, but from some vantage points you can see it in that form. There is a path called "The Path of the Heart", after an hour of walk from the foot of the lake it will allow you to reach the most beautiful panoramic point of the lake where I am standing at. ⛪️ Along the way you will also meet the Hermitage of San't Egidio. Too bad that it was closed when I passed by. .
Beautiful lake. Many things to do by the lake. If you are adventurous do the "sentiere del cuore" the path of the heart. It is strenuous and go up for over a mile. It is worh it.
