From Acquapendente there is a nice scenery after San Lorenzo and down to Bolsena. The path through forest and agriculture areas . You will arrive directly into old town of Bolsena and passing the fortress.

Lots of good walking on this path. Don't miss seeing the Cassia old Roman road. The path wanders a large length of Italy, ending up, of course, at Roma
