Nice place to visit with families. Impressive.

Not Lake Como but still interesting. Many restaurants. Of course boating and fishing activities. Attractive but not overwhelming. Peaceful and calm most days and evenings.

We stopped for coffee on our way to Pienza, at a lovely restaurant right on the water by the pier. Clear blue water and fish swimming in the lake - a restful sight

We went on a one day excursion to Trasimeno. It is truly a wonderful place to view - but don't go there for swimming in the lake. The fish are dead :( and the water is not looking well..... We did have a very nice day due to the castle and the small town situated at the lake.

We stopped for lunch in Castiglione del Lago during our drive from Perugia to Pienza, at a lovely restaurant right on the water by the pier. Lovely clear blue water and fish jumping below us.

Lake is beautiful and lots of lovely villages especially Castiglione del Lago. Lovely artisan shops and places to sit and try the local cheese and wine - perfect setting.

We drove by at first and then doubled back to get a close look. Although we didn't take a boat ride to the islands in the middle of the lake , we might on another visit. So serene!

Lovely place to get away from it all. Loved the small villages along lake. Nice to walk just before dusk. Feed ducks, befriend local cats, have a beverage and people watch. Amazing at sunset

Must go when the weather is nice and the buildings are open....very very strange schedule. During May only on weekends. I went on a gorgeous Sunday. The 30 minute ferry ride was relaxing and enjoyable. The hiking was great and the churches awe inspiring. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Wonderful lake, quieter than the northern lakes. Family friendly , plenty of camp sites and shopping . Plenty to do in surrounding areas and beaches on the northern side. Great bars a restaraunts and plenty of music. Great place for a chilled out holiday . We have been coming for 9 years now. Never dissapointed .
