The town of Bolsena takes its name from the lake of the same name, it is on the north eastern shores of Lago di Bolsena. Bolsena has I think a much more touristy seaside feel to it than the other towns surrounding the lake, with more in the way of campsites, agriturismo’s, hotels and holiday homes it attracts a lot of holiday makers. The resident population of around 4,000 normally grows to approximately 10,000 during the summer months.
We started our walk at the top of the town, high above the lake and rooftops and strolled downhill. For those of you that were asking me where I took the chimney photo from that I posted on Beautiful World, the fourth mosaic, shows the spot by the archway.
