Side Trips from Rome Sights



Lakeside Lido

Lakeside Lido Review

Lined with restaurants, ice-cream parlors, and cafés, this is favorite spot for Roman families to relax. No motorized craft are allowed on the lake, but you can rent paddleboats and kayaks. The waters are full of seafowl, such as swans and herons, and there is a nature trail along the wooded end of the shore for those who want to get away from the throng. There are bathing establishments where you can rent deck chairs; you might also want to stop to eat a plate of freshly prepared pasta or a gigantic Roman sandwich at one of the little snack bars under the oak and alder trees. There's also a small, permanent fairground for children.
