Lake Trasimeno Hotels

Lake Trasimeno, near Perugia in Umbria, is the fourth largest lake in Italy. Popular tourist destination, the lake is surrounded by the Parco del Lago Trasimeno, a green oasis full of wildlife. The lake is accessible from the A1 motorway, exit Val di Chiana towards Perugia.

The area of Lake Trasimeno is inhabited since prehistoric times and is historically famous for the tremendous battle that took place on its shores in 217 BC: in three hours the Carthaginian army of Hannibal defeated the Roman legions of the consul Gaius Flaminius making more than 15 000 victims.

There are three islands in the lake. Polvese island, the largest, where the Province of Perugia has established a scientific and educational park. The Maggiore island, the only permanently inhabited (35 people) connected to the mainland by ferries leaving from Tuoro, Castiglione del Lago and Passignano. The Minore island, covered with vegetation and which is home to a colony of cormorants.

Of course on the lake you can enjoy any kind of water sports. Some of the most important sports centers include the Sailing Club Trasimeno in Passignano, the dock of San Feliciano and the motor-boating schools in Magione, the Sailing Club Castiglionese in Castiglione del Lago and Porto Punta Navaccia on the shore of Tuoro.
