There is an impressive place for its uniqueness: the Regional Natural Reserve Lake of Posta Fibreno, Frosinone, Lazio Region.

The lake around which the reserve lies, is long and narrow and has a particular origin that makes it crystal clear and cold: the result of a system of karst springs fed by the basin of the Sangro Valley. The peculiarity of this reserve is not only this: there is also a floating island, “La Rota”, natural phenomenon perhaps unique in Europe. The island, within a pond connected to the lake, moves because of the wind and the level of the groundwater sources. In windy days, you can observe this curious phenomenon with your naked eye. Even the trees that rise on the island are unique: they are little more than shrubs because they receive little nourishment, being rooted in water.

Let yourself be surrounded by the quiet and by the natural spectacle of this place, walking through several paths where you can see plants, trees and animals. Near the Regional Natural Reserve Lago di Posta Fibreno bthere are bars, restaurants, pizzerias, farmhouses and B & B.

Even the ancient Romans did not lose the opportunity to celebrate this magical place with their writing: one among all, Cicero: “Amo questa salubrità ed amenità. Specialmente da quando sono qui giunto non mi posso saziare di tanta meraviglia”. With these words, we hope we arouse your curiosity and we advise couples, but not only them, not to miss this magical place.
