Lake Trasimeno Holidays

Beautiful lake in rolling Umbrian countryside

Set in rural Umbria near the Tuscany border, your holiday in Trasimeno is ideally placed to explore these two fascinating regions. Assisi, Perugia, Siena and Florence are all accessible in a day. Castiglione lies on the south-western shore of the lake. Its old walled town overlooks the lake and is a delight to explore. Passignano (main picture) sits on the northern shore. Its historic centre of cobbled streets is dominated by an imposing fortress. Both resorts have lake bathing and ferry services to the islands of Maggiore and Polvese and excellent restaurants serving local cuisine. There is also plenty of walking to enjoy in the Trasimeno National Park, as well as a fascinating Etruscan history to explore.

Palio Delle Barche

In July one of the main events during the summer is the “Palion delle Barche” This historical re-enactment tells the story of rivalry between two historical Perugian families, the Baglioni and the Oddi. The event takes place on the last Sunday in July and is a race in 3 parts, water, overland and back in the water. 160 contestants divide
into 4 teams to race against each other and one of the most gruelling parts is running the steep steps to the fortress that overlooks Passignano carrying the extremely heavy boat. Fun to watch and a great atmosphere!
