There is no sea in Umbria, but Trasimeno is the largest lake in central Italy. A picturesque freshwater body, overlooked by towers and castles, mysteries and legends.
Castiglione del Lago is among the most beautiful villages in Italy, with its Corgna Palace and the frescoes of Pomarancio. A true paradise for those who like windsurfing or canoeing.
A distinct territory in an emerald region that delivers infinite beauty in its many art cities, such as Todi, built on ancient Roman cisterns, and even earlier Etruscan walls, shimmering and white, overlooking green hills. There are many marks of history here; from the mythical Jacopone da Todi to the Temple of Consolation, designed by Bramante. From its terrace you can admire the Tiber, which here is still a wild torrent on its long way to Rome. From here you enter the province of Terni, and the gothic Orvieto appears majestic and impenetrable, perched on the cliff with its solemn Duomo cathedral and esoteric St. Patrick’s Well. The Duomo’s façade decorated with bas-reliefs has made Orvieto famous all over the world.
The wine and food of this area are sublime and varied, though the protagonists are the meats and the precious and delicious truffles, which enrich the traditional first courses for a true ecstasy of the senses.
