Trasimeno Lake in Umbria Italy

Lake Trasimeno is the fourth largest lake in Italy and the first lake on the Italian peninsula. Set between typical green Umbrian hills, it is surrounded by many towns, like Magione, Passignano, Tuoro and Castiglione del Lago. It borders Val di Chiana, Tuscany to the north. The Lake Trasimeno has fascinated people like Goethe, Stendhal and Byron, leaving in them an unforgettable vision. Since their time, little has changed. Staying in this area, you can still breathe the atmosphere of that gentle and refined era. Now the only difference is that the inns and taverns of the nineteenth century have been replaced by farmhouses, B&B, campsites and hotels, located along the green shores of Lake Trasimeno to welcome visitors and provide them with all the comforts of a pleasant holiday. The Lake Trasimeno also has beautiful beaches with umbrellas, deck chairs and loungers to make your summer holiday bubbly and special. You can swim in the Lake Trasimeno and the maximum depth is of about 6 metres. There are ferries departing each hour from Passignano sul Trasimeno to the lake’s islands. The Lake Trasimeno has three islands: Polvese, a scientific and educational park where experimentation and research take place; Maggiore, inhabited by only 18 people; Minore, the wildest one, totally covered by local vegetation except for a small anchorage. Walking in the territory of Lake Trasimeno between castles or medieval villages such as Castiglione del Lago, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, in the silence of the woods and the tranquility of the lake, will make you relive a past that now is difficult to discover and that here on Lake Trasimeno and throughout Umbria is still alive today in a stunning natural setting of water and trees. After admiring the beauty of nature, visitors can indulge in sports that are practiced here (golf, tennis, wind-surfing ...) or just swim and soak up the sun on one of the many beaches. There are really many reasons to enjoy a few days of holiday here. Lake Trasimeno is an unforgettable place for your holidays in Umbria, where you can spend moments of pure relaxation.
