Lakes of Abruzzo
Among the lakes of Abruzzo there are half a dozen or so that really stand out. One of the most picturesque is an artificial lake situated within the expansive Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park. At one end of Lake Barrea the eponymous hill town looks down on to the water with mountains in the distance and hills on both sides.
Belonging to the same park area and an hour's drive from Barrea is Lake Scanno which lies a short distance north of the town of the same name. Then from there it's just a short hop to Lake San Domenico close to the little village of Villalago. Lake Bomba, Lake Piaganini and Lake Casoli are more spread out across Abruzzo.
