Lake Trasimeno lies between Umbria and Tuscany. framed by a gentle landscape planted with vines and olives.
Three islands surface from its waters: Maggiore and Minore close to the northern shore, and Polvese in the southeast corner. Its banks are dotted with tourist resorts, in particular Passignano, Tuoro and Castiglione del Lago. To defence its fascinating and wonderful environment the Region created, with a Regional Law, the Natural Park of Trasimeno. The lake offers countless water sports activities and is a real paradise for anglers and keens on nature.
Pike and the prized carp "in porchetta" are gourmet specialities of Lake Trasimeno. Irish lace and pillow lace add lustre to the Trasimeno's crafts.

Catch a ferry to one of the lake’s islands and visit Isola Maggiore to watch the fishermen mending their nets and women knitting lace. Visit the old romantic castle and the small church on top of the island where you may enjoy a fantastic panoramic view. Or go to Isola Polvese, a natural reserve with the ruin of an old monastery. At Oasi della Valle at San Feliciano you can watch rare local and migrant birds. Around the lake there are many interesting little towns for shopping, museums and restaurants. Before dinner have an aperitivo in one of the lake front caffes at Passignano sul Trasimeno or Castiglione del Lago watching the change of guard when the swallows return to their nests and the bats begin to draw their circles in the air. In the surrounding hills you can visit our village Castel Rigone as well as Cortona, Citta della Pieve, Paciano, Panicale and Magione.

Corciano and Deruta


The centres of Corciano and Deruta are no less fascinating, with their narrow alleywais and nobile buildings.
The hills and countryside are primarily cultivated with vineyards, olive trees and grain. Artisan crafts flourish here; wrought iron, lace and majolica ware (at Deruta important is the Museo della Ceramica).

Assisi, a land of Saints and religious movements, represent the heart of Umbria's spirituality. Set above a spur of Mount Subasio, which overlooks the verdant Umbrian valley in the broad basin of the Chiascio and Topino rivers, Assisi appears from a distance to be terraced with a cascade of churches, houses and bell towers. The area also includes others important towns that are true gems of art and history such as for example Bettona (with its precious Pinacoteca), Cannara and Bastia Umbra. Now as in the past, the shops in Assisi and the nearby towns display fabrics with tight, geometric embroidery representing imaginative patterns and animal's shapes ("Assisi stitch"). And in Umbrian cuisine, olive oil plays the leading role.


The District is an ideal starting point for those wishing to explore the most important town of central Italy. It maintains the delightful lush-green setting, the woods, the olive groves, hermitages and churches and clear spring (Campello sul Clitunno).
The spirit of Spoleto skilfully rides the ride than ever (for example the Rocca Albornoziana), like the atmosphere redolent with learning that seems to impregnate the stories of the city, only to bloom in June, when Spoleto celebrates the splendours ot its more recent traditions: "The Festival of Two Worlds".
A similar melting pot of history and tradition can be experienced in the flavours of the local cuisine, robust yet unexpectedly refined, caressed by the delicate whites and vigorous reds of an ancient enological tradition. One more reason to maintain a special memory of Spoleto's district, and even to take home some of the local homemade produce of the fertile Umbrian hills: olive oil, wine, mushrooms, sausage meats, truffles, honey and chestnuts.

Foligno - Norcia - Cascia

The district, one of the most enchanting for landscape and architecture includes important villages and towns such as Foligno, Nocera Umbra, Norcia e Cascia in the Valnerina.
