Lake Trasimeno is one of the most remarkable places in our region, and the fourth-largest lake in Italia.
Surrounded by the breathtaking views of the Umbrian hills that frame it, it is the ideal place for excursions and art visits.
On its shores, you can see splendid historical villages dotted with towers and castles: Castiglione del Lago, Città della Pieve, Magione, Passignano sul Trasimeno, Panicale, Piegaro and Tuoro sul Trasimeno.
But there is much more to discover: visiting its islands, Polvese and Maggiore, via the ferry that connects them, is certainly an experience worth having.
There is certainly no shortage of gastronomic specialties based on fish from the lake: the queen of the table is the Carpa del Trasimeno, but there are also eel, perch, pike, and silverside.
The most famous dish is the tegamaccio: a kind of cacciucco alla Livornese, made with fresh fish, which is cut into pieces and cooked together with an exquisite tomato sauce.
Treat yourself to a glass of wine along the lakeside at sunset when the sky is colored in all the warmest shades… a moment you will remember forever.
The Trasimeno Music Festival is considered one of the most prestigious festivals in Europe and one of the best music festivals in Italy.
Over the years, the festival has hosted numerous summer concerts on the shores of Lake Trasimeno and in some of the most evocative locations in the region: the Castle of the Knights of Malta in Magione, the Teatro Caporali in Panicale, the Basilica and Abbey of San Pietro, the Sala dei Notari of Palazzo dei Priori, the National Gallery of Umbria, the Morlacchi Theater and the Cathedral of San Lorenzo of Perugia, the Upper Basilica of San Francesco of Assisi, the Teatro della Concordia of Monte Castello di Vibio, Palazzo Trinci of Foligno, the church of San Domenico and the Palazzo Ducale in Gubbio, the Teatro Caio Melisso in Spoleto. In these venues legendary musicians and young talents took turns on stage, in a unique atmosphere, appreciated by spectators from all over the world.
