The dam is the biggest in the South and the lake is significant to the local economy.
We have visited the dam with our guide Rosaria Tancredi.
She really knows a lot about it and we have also visited the inside of the dam.
And explains spontaneously and eagerly.
Visiting the dam was the best part of the day, a worthwhile experience. (Dress appropriately and with adequate shoes, it is cold inside the dam).
The success of this dam visit was thanks to the guide we had.

Entrance to the park is €5 per adult.
It includes the visit to the dam.
Summer entrance is free after 19.00. (from 1 to 25 August)

There is a Restaurant, and I bought the adult menu with the entrance, for a total of €15.
Children menu costs €8.
Food in the self service restaurant is good and abundant.
There is also a pic-nic area.
We were also allowed to take some of our own food and drinks into the restaurant.

Trip on the lake with the boat is slightly expensive at €3.50 for adults and children each. And while the guide knew a lot about the lake, it was the right questions which made him talk a lot about the birth and economy of the lake (it is important to agriculture and drinking water).
The submerged houses are an impressive view.
But you need to ask the right questions.

The park which follows the dam is 6 kilometer and is ideal to do walking or by bicycle. These can be rented in the park at €3 per hour.
You can also rent an electric car at €14 per hour.

The park is still in development and there is more to come in future.
The visit is dependent on your expectations, and your happiness with the visit depends on your own initiative.
The park is manned by a cooperative and volunteers and they are helpful, but probably need more organization and a framework (management).
The potential for development and improvement is significant.
