"Alfredo's at Bracciano Lake, Italy"-All I knew, when we arrived in Rome from our long trip from Phoenix is, I didn’t want to drive far and I wanted a hotel on a lake for the night. Italy doesn’t have many lakes near Rome you can stay on. We planned a week traveling aimlessly through Tuscany on our destination in Cinque Terre. We looked on the map and saw that north of Rome was just what our tired bodies had wanted, a lake. It was in the off season so we knew that getting a room would be easy. We found Hotel Alfredo on Bracciano Lake. A picture-perfect setting on a circular lake with Odescalchi Castle staring down on us. A full moon topped it off. What else could you ask for. Oh..It was my birthday!!
