Why should you visit Lake Trasimeno?
If you want to make the most out of your time in the region and already have plans to do a number of things during your stay, you may not think that a visit to the lake is all that necessary. However, there are quite a few good reasons why our travel and tour experts feel that it could add something special to the journey. That’s why a few of our Tuscan tours include a visit to this natural landmark.
The lake is in the centre of a wide variety of beautiful places
The fact that Lake Trasimeno is situated in Central Italy means that there’s a lot to do around it. It’s surrounded by some of Italy’s greatest locations – Florence, Rome, Siena, Arezzo and several others. This often means that aside from the beautiful, natural views, there’s also plenty to enjoy a short distance away. If you plan on going from one destination to another, this could be an excellent place to take a little break from your travels and just enjoy nature.
The perfect spot for hiking, biking and exploration
There’s a reason why our experts include a visit to Lake Trasimeno in our adventure tours of Tuscany – and it’s simply because it’s the ideal spot for anyone who wants to do something exhilarating and exciting. Wandering around the traditional and historic towns may be an incredible experience, but those who want to get their adrenaline pumping are certain to enjoy a bike ride around the lake to do something new and unique from the rest of the Tuscan tour.
The castles and ruins around the lake
We may have mentioned the towns and cities that surround Lake Trasimeno, but these areas aren’t right on the waters. There are many castles and ancient, ruined sites that are located very close to the lake that you might want to check out, however. Even some of the lake’s islands, such as Passignano and Castiglione del Lago, have some incredible landmarks to check out. Zocco castle and Guglielmi castle are both great examples of this.
