Swim at the Castel Gandolfo

On our last day of the Italian tour, Janne and I drove to Lago Albano, an old volcanic crater that is now filled with water. On the rim of the crater you can find Castel Gandolfo, one of most beautiful Italian towns, the Pope's summer cottage, and wonderful views.

At the bottom of the crater you'll find nice clean water. Although in the August heatwave the water wasn't particularly cool -- 31 Celsius. Nevertheless, a nice plunge into water before flights back home...

We at Ristorante Bucci, with a wonderful view as shown above. They had interesting meat ball dishes, either with cheese Cognag sauce or the red wine sauce... we ordered both:

This restaurant must have one of the best toilet views, too. From the men's toilet there's a window:

Here are pictures from the swim. Note the black sand:
