Castiglione is a cute little town on the western shore of Lake Trasimino, very near the border with Tuscany. It’s up on a small hill, and provides lovely views of the lake. It has one long main street which is filled with stores and restaurants,...More

Castigliano del Lago is a wonderful little medieval city with restaurants, shops and the Rocca (Fort) del Leone is a gem. Visiting the fort includes a walk through a museum and then into well preserved fort with truly beautiful views of Lake Trasimeno.

Great location for a stronghold guarding the lake and the picturesque village near it. Impressive views from the towers.

Nice castle with great view of the lake. A good place to drop by given the city near at the castle. Though, do not go out of you way to visit the city or the castle; do it if you are near by anyway.

Old world view of a life we will never know. Great views and feels from the fort walls and tours. A definite must see if you are in the Umbria region.

So worth the very reasonably priced entry ticket to both fortress and the palazzo Della Corgna. Not very often you find such well preserved buildings to explore and the views of the lake and surrounding countryside from the top are incredible. The town of Castiglione...More

It looked quite simple, basic to us but the ticket, combined with the Palazzo della Corgna really makes the all experience worth trying. Greatly presented and accessible old castle with fantastic view point over the lake. Don't hesitate, give it a go!
