A Lakeside Castle, VIP Access, and Aperitivo

Bracciano, ItalyCall For Price 1/2 Day

Elegantly situated on the edge of Lake Bracciano, the picturesque 15th-century Castello Odescalchi offers a spectacular view of the volcanic lake and town below. As arranged exclusively for our clients, your visit will include a private trip to the apartment and secret garden of the Orsini and Borgia family during the feudal period. This castle is often used for private events including weddings of European VIPs and Americans such as Tom Cruise. The castle is only a short ride by a regional train from Rome. Directions on how to get to the town of Bracciano will be provided upon booking the Experience along with suggestions on things to do the rest of the day.


After taking in the history of the architecture, the former residents, and the many ceiling frescoes, tapestries, ancient arms and more, a special Italian aperitivo and a selection of local produce will be served to you in the castle courtyard. As the perfect end to a perfect day, we highly recommend a stroll through the streets of Bracciano with the remainder of your time spent relaxing by the lake, which is just a short walk from the castle.
