Lake Piediluco is located in the central part of Italy. On its shores is the village of Piediluco, a hamlet in Terni. Situated at the southeastern periphery of Umbria, with a branch bordering Lazio, Lake Piediluco can be considered the largest natural lake of the region after Trasimeno. The name seems to be interpreted as “at the foot of the sacred wood.” Together with the Lungo, Ripasottile and Ventina lakes located in the Rieti province, this is one of the remains of the old Velinus Lake, a large alluvial basin.
It has an irregular shape with a perimeter of about 13 kilometers. The lake is at an altitude of 375 meters, with a maximum depth of 19 meters. Its natural tributary is the Fuscello River, and the other two tributaries are represented by man-made canals.
The panoramic view of Lake Piediluco, the second lake in Umbria, is characterized by low-lying colored houses lined up next to each other, separated only by the narrow alleys that move vertically through the ancient village formed in medieval times.
