Welcome to Italy in Photos and an immersive visual journey through the enchanting town of Anguillara Sabazia: – Anguillara Sabazia is a captivating town located in the Metropolitan City of Rome, Lazio, central Italy. It’s nestled on a small cape on the coast of Lake Bracciano, approximately 30 kilometres north of Rome. The town’s name originates from an ancient Roman villa called “Angularia”, which used to sit where the shore makes a right angle. The local history of the town is deeply tied to the Anguillara family for centuries. The family owned several buildings in Rome, so they did not live year-round at the lake. The town passed from the Orsini’s to the Grillo family rule in 1693. Anguillara Sabazia is a popular destination for tourists, thanks to its medieval centre, beach, and proximity to Rome.
