We drove around the lake hoping to get close to it but you can not due the old race track that goes around it. Such a shame.

..you cannot seem to get to the lake shore!. That said the walk around it on the small road is fine, but like every where in Sicily, rubbish and fly tipping makes a real mess. The whole island is an eyesore and it has got...More

The lake is not suitable for bathing as a race track runs around the shoreline. Take a bike and ride around the lake following the course of the race track. There are some interesting vistas and the distance is very manageable.

You drive around the lake on a bumpy track that, due to the vegetation, make views of the lake impossible. There is no access to the lake due to the racing circuit. As I said, a waste of time

Beautiful lake but unfortunately views are very restricted due to the autodrome. Quite a disappointment.

There are some entry points to approach the lake. One of the roads is not very good condition and a little bit steep. When raining, it could be like a river.

We were exceedingly disappointed with our visit here. We expected to be able to walk around a lovely lake. Lake Pergusa is a unique natural lake which apparently is a special wildlife habitat, home to migrating birds, rare species and beautiful flora. When we set...More

A lovely natural lake that has been utterly devastated by a go-kart track right around the lake. It would have been beautiful and rich in Greek mythology it is such a shame that it is encircled in an unused track. So sad. On the upside...More
