Calm and beautiful lake, good motorsports scene.
Oct 2019
Took part in a small trackday on the Autodromo di Pergusa, very good experience and people.
Track is used as a footpath and for doing sports when not in use for motorsports.

Can not get to the lake
Mar 2018 • Couples
We drove around the lake hoping to get close to it but you can not due the old race track that goes around it.
Such a shame.

Due to the motor racing circut....

..you cannot seem to get to the lake shore!. That said the walk around it on the small road is fine, but like every where in Sicily, rubbish and fly tipping makes a real mess. The whole island is an eyesore and it has got worse since I visited 30 years ago. A shame...the whole tourist industry should be up in arms as it seriously does take away from the natural beauty. No one seems to give a hoot and bin bags, kitchen sinks and builders rubble are dumped in every layby, scenic spot and on the side of the roadways.

Pergusa autodromo
Jul 2016 • Solo
Autodromo Pergusa is a historic racetrack around the lake Pergusa, races of ETCC and Abarth series were held here on this old-style track. The park is open for public visitors, many local people are using the unique place for cycling, running or just simply walking. Recommended trip for racing fans.

Scenic Lake
Aug 2015 • Couples
The lake is not suitable for bathing as a race track runs around the shoreline. Take a bike and ride around the lake following the course of the race track. There are some interesting vistas and the distance is very manageable.

Waste of time
Jul 2015
You drive around the lake on a bumpy track that, due to the vegetation, make views of the lake impossible. There is no access to the lake due to the racing circuit. As I said, a waste of time

Worth a short visit but don't go by bus!
Aug 2015 • Solo
This is a lake about 5 miles from Enna. It supposedly has mythological significance as the Gateway to the Underworld where Hades abducted Persephone. It's also a wildlife refuge with some uncommon species. Unfortunately it's hard to see much: the lake is surrounded by tall dense vegetation, with only an occasional boardwalk access point.

Also,in the sixties someone had the weird idea of building a formula 1 racetrack round the perimeter. This is still there, though not used much recently as far as I can see; it further blocks access to the lake and rather ruins the ambiance!

The main thing to note though, is that the number 5 bus which goes there from Enna runs in the morning... and then STOPS running completely for the whole afternoon! I was stuck there for several hours until the service resumed at 4,30 PM, and there really isn't much to see or do...

Beautiful Lake but restricted views
Beautiful lake but unfortunately views are very restricted due to the autodrome. Quite a disappointment.

Calm and relaxing place

There are some entry points to approach the lake. One of the roads is not very good condition and a little bit steep. When raining, it could be like a river.

Views completely spoilt
Sep 2014 • Couples
We were exceedingly disappointed with our visit here. We expected to be able to walk around a lovely lake. Lake Pergusa is a unique natural lake which apparently is a special wildlife habitat, home to migrating birds, rare species and beautiful flora. When we set off on our walk we realised that the only circuit around the lake is on the motor-racing track. We walked around this for its 5 km of distance and only caught a rare glimpse of the lake. The track is enclosed by its security fencing and tall vegetation which obscures any views of the water.
