  • The "sea of Perugia", as it was known until 20 years ago. Now, in some areas it back to rearrange the rooms, the beaches, the receptivity, to return foreigners, Italians and perugini in one of the cleanest Lakes of Italy. Another feature of the Lake is its spectacular sunsets, especially from the countries of San Feliciano, Sant'Arcangelo, Torricella. Romantic sunsets ...

  • Nearby, on the West Bank of the Lake, is Castiglione del Lago, bonita defended locality, in his time, by a historic castle. Coming from Arezzo, in Tuscany, you will enter into the northern tip of the Lake and you can see the hills behind which the armies of Hannibal went into hiding to trap the Roman army and push it toward the water. Rome was harshly defeated that day. The town is beautiful and walk, without being something outstanding, is nice.

  • Very nice view. The little towns that surround it are characteristic and very interesting, from the point of view of the "culture of the Lake". Perhaps deserves greater attention and care on the part of "insiders" and competent bodies to give a greater enhancement to a similar natural resource. Beautiful to visit the Islands, especially in spring.
