The largest lake in central-southern Italy, Lago Trasimeno lies in Umbria, close to the Tuscan border. It is surrounded by beautiful medieval villages, and sloping hills mostly cultivated with olive groves. It is home to three islands: Minore, Maggiore, and Polvese, of which only the last two can be visited and reached by short ferry rides. Lake Trasimeno is also famously linked to Hannibal, the great Carthaginian leader who decimated the Roman troops here before vigorously continuing his journey towards the Urbs. Among all the villages around the lake, Castiglione del Lago, Tuoro, Passignano, Panicale, are those that offer the most opportunity for tourism and from which you can take beautiful walks overlooking the lake.
