Discover small, traditional fishing villages, hidden olive groves, and a smattering of castles at Lake Trasimeno, the largest body of water in peninsular Italy. Admire the area's churches, and learn about their connection with the region's Etruscan and medieval past. Take a dip in the lake's shallow waters at one of its many beaches, hop a boat to one of its small islands, or try a round of golf at a nearby course.

Where to stay in Perugia

For a view over the city's rooftops, book your stay at a hotel in one of the old town's heritage-rich hotels. Within walking distance from Perugia's main tourist sites, centrally located hotels offer complimentary parking, free Wi-Fi, and quick access to fine shops and restaurants. If all you need is a quiet room and a warm meal, explore the private inns and hostels on the edge of the city. Many Umbrian farmhouses, surrounded by olive groves and ancient vineyards, also offer good-value rooms just a short drive from the city.
