Rich vegetation, characterised by beech, pine, fir and chestnut woods, create an enchanting frame to the Monticchio Lakes. They formed on the crater of the extinguished volcano.
The Lago Piccolo (Small Lake) and the Lago Grande (Big Lake) are separated by a stream.
They look like two gems that, during the day, reflect the glows of the green nature moulding and confusing themselves in it and, during the night, create a very evocative landscape.
Those who love nature will find in this wonderful scenery the right environment for their explorations and will have a taste of the lightly sparkling water that naturally springs from the streams.
In the summer you can hire pedal boats and investigate the lakes by yourselves. The stately Benedictine Abbey of San Michele overlooks the lakes, high in the forests above it is a wonderfully peaceful place.
