|Thursday 19th April - Italy - Bolsena
Today we left Florence and drove towards Rome. At Orvieto we turned off to Lago Bolsena. Our plan is to have a night at Bolsena and then go to the coast North of Rome for a couple of days by the sea, before going to Rome. The girls were awake during the journey and very happy.
Orvieto looked dramatic, on a hilltop surrounded by fortress walls and archways, but we didnt visit the town we drove past. We have driven past lots of places that look so lovely, but we just drive past it makes us think that Italy is a beautiful country. We arrived in Bolsena in the early afternoon and its gorgeous too. The lake is huge. We are at a good campsite right beside the lake with a little beach of black sand just a stones throw from the car. We were all swimming today in the lake me and Naomi only very briefly, but Andrew and Keziah swam for quite a bit. The water is very cold, but the weather is so lovely and warm.
