We had a great night's sleep, and it was a beautiful day! Breakfast included juice, yogurt, and a gorgeous apple tart, but I was quite happy with three of these:
We were headed to Lake Bolsena. We got about 4 km down the road, came around a curve, and this guy was standing in the road. I rolled my window down to take a picture, and could have patted him on the head.
Lake Bolsena is located on the borders of Lazio and Tuscany. The lake is formed in the crater of an extinct volcano. The town of Bolsena was a once a Etruscan settlement, and is now a pretty resort town on the lake.
Bolsena sits on a hill overlooking the lake. We wandered from the top of the hill, down through pretty quiet streets, and lots of steps, then walked toward the water, and along the lake in search of lunch.
We had lunch outside just feet from the water, then made our way back through town and up the hill. It was an enjoyable day trip.
