A little fog and little bit of sun at the start of our trip to the lake has created a magical experience. Two islands in the lake, sculpture park, place where was Hannibal,... Worth to visit.

This is a huge lake with 2 islands in the middle. You can access the larger island via the ferry and once there walk around the island to see the ancient sites. Lovely way to spend the day if the weather is good!!

I'm sure that the lake is wonderful in the summer, but on a dull day in Autumn, it is nothing special, as the surrounding hills are too low to provide a great backdrop. Beware the roads to the west and south are some of the...More

On the recommendation of our hotel manager we drove to castigilione de lago and took a ferry across to Isola Maggiore for lunch. The ferries operate frequently and cost €16.90 for the return journey which take about 30 minutes each way. Lovely viewsin all directions.

Went for a day trip, water murky and mosquitoes everywhere we walked. Huge clouds of them in the sky. So bad we left after a couple of hours as it was impossible to relax and enjoy the lake.

We are staying in Umbria and spent today at Passignano del Trasimeno, a beautiful lakeside village with fantastic views over the lake. There were several excellent small restaurants, Sottovente highly recommended, and the trip by boat to Isola Maggiore is well worth it.

It's definitely worth it - especially with kids - and you might find yourself going there several times. Start with Castiglione del Lago on the western side of the lake. Skip the central town and drive along the lakefront... More
