With about 1000 inhabitants, Paciano is listed as one of the Borghi piu belli d'Italia for good reason. It is a small, walled, cobble-stoned town with small little streets and beautiful architecture

We owned a home within this little hamlet. It is peaceful and well kept. It is a town where everyone knows everyone and they have great pride in their little walled town.

The outstanding village of Paciano is situated very close to us and we frequently walk around its streets, within the wall of the town and marvel at its pristine houses and magnificent architecture. The town is only about 3 miles or so from another superb example of the type, Panicale. Indeed, both of these settlements are listed in the top 20 outstanding hill towns of Italy. The drive between them, as I say about 3 miles in all, is delightful and affords spectacular views over Lake Trasimeno. Paciano's houses offer a spellbinding tour. They are classically, magnificent stone houses typical of the Umbrian region, which have been restored and are maintained to an impeccable standard. The only thing I would add is, however, that the majority of them are owned by foreign buyers and, therefore, in the off-season, before the tourists come in significant numbers to take up residence in them, the village is largely deserted and has little going on. Nevertheless, do take a stroll here yourself if you're hereabouts.

In the territory of Umbria (and of nearby Tuscany) there are many well-preserved historical centers. But the old town of Paciano is further appreciable, because apparently even the smallest incident of twisting the building took place in the circle of its pentagonal walls. It not by chance has been officially inserted in the category of "Borghi più belli d'Italia" (the most beautiful villages in Italy). The village, in the Middle Ages ruled by the city of Perugia, has admirably preserved its appearance of a "castle" (that in the Italy of "Comuni" means mostly no "residence of a feudal lord", but "fortified village"), probably because it has not increased its importance after the time of its foundation (the town now has less than 1,000 inhabitants), then the ancient buildings were always sufficient for its population. A special feature that distinguishes Paciano by many other historic centers are the streets not paved with stones, but with bricks. This was a custom much more widespread in the past: for example, it seems that this type of flooring was still normal in the entire city of Siena until the eighteenth century (and now preserved only in the Piazza del Campo). In Paciano instead it has been maintained; even if the bricks have been renovated recently. The village also appears quite lively from a cultural perspective. In short, Paciano is worth a visit by those who spend some time in the area.
