The sunsets here are among the best I have ever seen. If you like taking pictures of nature, doing birdwatching this is THE place. The two tiny islands in the lake are worth a visit, but Castiglione del lago and Passignano are definitely the must-see towns on the lake, they are amongst the most picturesque towns in Italy.

When the Romans encountered the army led by Hannibal, it is said the battle was so fierce that the dead soldiers in the lake caused the lake to turn RED for THREE days!!

We are frequent day visitors to Lake Trasimeno. Lovely walks along the lake. Interesting shops and the best hot chocolate we've ever had in the first cafe you come to as you leave the main parking area.... sorry I don't know it's name!

We stayed in a place near the lake for one night and were surprised that water in that lake is not suitable for swimming. The water had green color. Plus many many many large mosquitos when the sun goes down so it is better to stay at home in the evening.

A beautiful lake which is the 4th largest in Italy with a 60 kilometre circumference. It has 3 islands, two of which have ferries from various villages around the lake. There are beautiful villages around the lake. Most close to the lake are fishing villages. It is so good to see that there are still fishermen carrying on the tradition.... More
