We arrived right in the middle of a local festival - Corpus Domini 27 March - 3 June. Lucky us, as it made the town lively and festive. Also, there was a brass band

Yes the lake is very clean and is an enjoyable place for a swim.. probably better than the local coastline - head to the township of Bolsena. It is an amazing region with plenty to see and do.
