Bracciano is a marvelous Italian town located halfway between Rome and Viterbo. The natural surroundings are amazingly tranquil and fascinating. The town faces Lake Bracciano, which has volcanic origins, and it is an important tourist location. Lake Bracciano, indeed, is famous for being an important hub for many sports because of its natural park. Odescalchi Castle was built in the 15th century and combines the functions of a military defense structure and a civilian residence of the feudal lords of the period, the Orsini and Borgia, both papal families. As one of the largest and best-maintained castles in Italy, it also houses a museum; as a center of cultural events, the Castello has hosted several high-profile weddings like the one of Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes.
