Lago Trasimeno

Lago Trasimeno

Edit Mode

Lago Trasimeno is the largest lake in Central Italy. Thanks to its warm climate, with long summers and moderate winters, you can swim in the lake from May to September (and is safe for children as well). Pike and carp fishing is a favorite activity for many locals and tourists.

Lago Trasimeno has well-tended beaches and offers a variety of watersports including sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, and canoeing; rentals can be found in the town of Passignano.

The best beaches for sunbathing and swimming are just below Castiglione, near Tuoro and the fishing village of Torricella. Isola Polvese, a mostly uninhabited island, serves today as a public park. It can be reached by boat from the village of San Feliciano and has one of the best beaches on Lake Trasimeno.

Numerous beautiful villages are situated directly around Lago Trasimeno and are well worth a visit. Castiglione del Lago, constructed on a limestone cliff cape on the east side of the lake and the walled town of Città della Pieve with its magnificent medieval center. Here in its historic heart, the narrowest street in Italy can be found (Vicolo Baciadonne)!

Finally, Castel Rigone, home to one of the most significant architectural masterpieces of the Umbrian Renaissance, the Sanctuary of Maria Santissima dei Miracoli, with many masterpieces of art.
