Vistas – and lakes & mountains
Lago de Fusini
Unbelievable rugged mountain views
Turquois lakes, forest and even a herd of horses. Think Canada but in Italy. The feeling being on such a stunning location after the day visitors have gone home is definitely worth the trip.

Don't shy away – it is a legal parking
Pay 15€ for a ticket at the entrance and drive up to the lakes
There are some reviews about people being send away by the guardian but this information is outdated. Trick is is not to come too early (preferably from 4pm) so day visitors are starting to leave the parking lot.

Upon arrival at the higher lake the guard contacts the entrance desk and shows you where to park. You can prolong you stay for another 24hours if you like.
The lower lake definitely is worth a visit too… nice little restaurant, a water wheel and rowing boats for rent. While the upper lake gives you a better view of the Mangart (Julian Alps) forming the natural border between Italy and Slovenia, the lower lake has a more beautiful color and more facilities.
