All life in this little town, as well as its mains attractions, are connected to the lake that lies beneath it, Lago di Vagli, which was formed artificially in 1947 when a dam of the river Edron was brought down.
The symbol of the area also pertains to the lake, even if it's a symbol only visible once every decade or more. The village of Fabbriche di Careggine was submerged in 1953, when one of Lake Vagli's dams was made higher, allowing it to hold more water. The towns of Il Pantane and Piari were also swallowed by the lake, and their inhabitants also forced to leave.
Apart from admiring its natural beauty, there is time for fun and games at VagliPark, a large adventure park aimed at the whole family. It includes the Lake Vagli Biopark, which offers a nice long walk along the banks of the reservoir, and a suspension bridge for both walkers and cyclists, whose 132 metres make it one of the biggest in Europe.
More daring spirits can take on the Volo dell'Angelo (flight of the angel): a stomach-churning leap into the void as you soar over the surface of the lake for a distance of 1500 metres, held 350 metres high by a steel cable, and reaching speeds of 150 km per hour. The zipwire is designed to be accessible even for those with disabilities.
