We stopped off at the east side just before San Feliciano for some quiet, untouristy walks. We then drove round to the relatively more busy 'Castiglione del Lago'. It was still very quiet with people taking it easy by the lakeside. Parking easy. Looked like there was some good fishing going on.

jump on one of the frequent boats for a sail on the great and tranquil lake. See where St Francis stayed for one lent and walk leisurely around the island. Good shops, tourist office and cafes. You can swim from one of the beaches. You can watch many types of birds on the lake. A great day out.

Closer than the beaches of Toscana os Marche, the Lago Trasimeno offers a really nice view and bathing area near Perugia, accessible by train and car. Id specially recommend the area of Castiglione del Lago, where there are lots of green areas as well!

We loved this lake so much that we returned here several times for a lazy afternoon at the beach. The lake is large and is surrounded by gentle hills. The water is clear and luke warm, very pleasant for swimming even though there are many water plants. We went to Passigliano and found a cafe with easy acces to the... More

Our trip to the lake was such a contrast to the 12 days we spent in the hills above Cortona. We could see Cortona from the cafe where we say drinking cappuccino in Castiglione di Lago. There are beaches for children to play and swim and bars and cafes along the waterside. You can take a boat trip to an... More

This is a lovely lake surrounded by lovely places to go to the beach and or explore a small hillside town. There is an island in the middle, that you can take a boat to for the day. I didn't do that but wish I had time to.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two visits to Lake Trasimeno and her beautiful sandy beach. There were a fair number of people but it never felt over crowded. Visitors kept the beach clean and there was no litter around which could so easily have blighted this spot. We visited a sandy beach and were able to walk out to swimming depth... More

When you are in the area, it is a nice change of scenery to come to the Lake. We discovered a nice beach cafe and ended up spending several hours there, swimming in the lake, having a few drinks and snacks and using the paddle boats
