Volcanic lakes

To the SE of Rome is a couple of really beautiful lakes that many tourists to Rome miss out on, Lago di Nemi and Lago Albano, but they are worth a visit if you happens to be able to get there. With steep hills around a deep blue lake they seem like a completely different world to busy Rome. Along the shores of Lago di Nemi is a small museum about the pleasure boats of Nero found there and an excavation of a Diana temple. And if you've had enough culture take a dip in the lakes from one the small beaches.
