"Lago Trasimeno - relaxing beauty off season" Lago Trasimeno by Trekki

Lago Trasimeno Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 28 photos

Of course I wanted to see Lago Trasimeno during my tour through Umbria in April 2008. This, not only because I wanted to come to peace with my school lessons in history, but also because I love water. I was here only for half a day and April was definitely a quiet season. I missed so much, like a visit to one of the islands, the fishermen museum, the western part of the lake and many other villages ? but then I have a good reason to come back.

All pictures have been taken by me, if not marked otherwise.

    Looks to be a beautiful day to visit the lake. Hope you can come back one day to see more and visit the islands. The castle ruins looks very nice!

    Love the Lake, but not really the sculptures. Like you, I think the Duck is the best!

    We are going to visit Umbria in July and we'll stay in a little village next to the Lago Trasimeno. I see you enjoyed exploring the places along the lake, so it's a good recommendation.

    The area around the lake seems so very serene. Just to walk or sit along its shore must be very relaxing. Oh, and that sculpture... quite unusual. I've never seen sculpture in the lake before :)

    Hi Ingrid, I like your tips on this beautiful lake with all its history. I must admit that I had never heard of Giovanni da Pian del Carpine -- an early traveler to Central Asia and author of the book that Marco Polo had with him when he went exploring!

    What a lovely lake and what interesting tips about the area around it too :-) I confess my classical history is less well-remembered than yours, so this was an unexpected gem for me!

    I never knew there was such a beautiful lake located in the middle of Italy! An no wonder you stopped at the sight of those old ruins with the picturesque pine trees - an amazing sight! Great tips as usual Ingrid.

    A "magic" castle and strange sculptures - sounds like the beginning of a fairy tale.

    I see you've kept busy in my absence, Ingrid. Looks like a beautiful getaway and we sure could use one right now.
