  • It is impossible to put into words a sunset or a sunrise at Lake Trasimeno: the colours and their shades are so various and intense that it feels like being in a dream. To fully appreciate this unique feature of the Lake the best seasons are spring and autumn; the ideal place to enjoy the sunset is the area between Oasi la Valle and Passignano (East), and to see the colors of dawn, the area West (Castiglione del Lago).

  • I love the Lake Trasimeno and living just a few kilometres from it, I go there often. I think it's one of the most beautiful Umbria. You can find everything: hotels, bed and breakfast, restaurants, pubs, kiosks along the Lake. Everything always very clean and cared for. In spring and summer there is always a large number of people but the lacustrine countries never become unsustainably chaotic, there's a pleasant gradually. The Lake is spectacular even in winter, when it is agitated and threatened by clouds swollen with rain. There is a sense of surreal poetry and grace of nature that only in such place you can find. Beautiful, I love it and you can not help but to love you too
