Bracciano is my favorite place to escape to.
Especially when I have an unplanned day or just a few hours off and I want a spontaneous and yet a luxury tourist experience. And I do dare to call it luxury, because Bracciano has it all: historic site, art exhibitions, street markets and concerts, beautiful nature, relaxing beaches, water sports, breathtaking panoramic spots and, of course, yummy italian restaurants.
There I go in quest of peace, joy and inspiration.
And all that is only 1 hour and 3 euros away from Rome :)
