Lake Nemi

Wedding at Lake Nemi

The lake is most famous for its sunken ancient Roman ships. These ships were very large and technologically advanced for their time. On the Western edge of the crater at Via Nemorense, there is a fine exhibit of the archeological excavation of the late 1920s which exposed the enormous structure which Caligula had ordered built. Emperors Caligula and Tiberius sailed on Lake Nemi not merely to cool off in summer, but to assert themselves as Nemorensis, rulers aligning with the Stars, wedded to Earth's perpetual life-force.
