In this region of great lakes, the Dolomites, and stunning green valleys, the landscape is perfect for trekking, having fun in the sun, or a dip in the water. In front of the Villa di Catullo is Spiaggia Giamaica: a large slab of rock creating a beautiful, smooth, white-rock beach surrounded by crystal-clear waters.

Behind it is the famous villa Grotte di Catullo. If the lake level is low enough you can walk around to Lido delle Bionde: a beach with a pier, a bar and a lawn shaded by olive trees.
