This little gem in the middle of Lake Trasimeno is really with a visit if you're spending days in this wonderful part of Italy. Get the small ferry from either Castiglione or Possignano and spend time aboard to settle down in tempo, because once on...More

A perfect spot for meditation. It offers walking trails across the island, surrounded by olive tree, and nice panoramic spots to look over the lake and surroundings.

Worth the ferry trip - harbour, street, cafes, restaurants, lakeside walks. Best in sunshine The toilets are behind the tourist info Watch the times for the return ferry - unlike some of Italy they do follow a timetable.

Caught the 'water bus' from Tuoro direct to the island. Very peaceful and felt like stepping into a different pace of life. We ate in a pizzeria overlooking the lake, beautiful views and surprisingly good value for money. It's a steep climb up to the...More

Historical place & religious place but even if you wish to visit a nice island with family or just a walk, consider this one. Plenty of restaurants to and their prices are actually less than expected.
