Castiglione del Lago

Castiglione del Lago is a town situated on the southwest corner of Lake Trasimeno. The historical centre is a well preserved, walled medieval locality that features a handful of Piazzas and churches. There are a number of restaurants and shops in the town centre but the town’s main attraction is the Castello del Leone, otherwise known as the ‘Fortress of the Lion’, that has withstood a number of sieges and features square towers in four of its corners.

Excursions and Places of Interest

Excursions and Places of interest at Castiglione del Lago

Natural areas of beauty

Umbria is home to Italy’s fourth-largest lake – Lake Trasimeno, where around this 128 square kilometres of sparkling blue water lie plenty of distinctive towns and villages, olive groves and vineyards. As the beaches of Italy’s coast can be quite a drive from this region, there are a few spots around the lake where you can swim in its clean and shallow waters. There are ferries that can be taken from Passignano which sail to the islands across the lake. There is a beach based on the lake just outside of Castiglione del Lago at La Merangola, where you will find many water sports, a bathing area, a café and other land activities including volleyball.

Water Parks

Tavernelle Aquapark

Hosting a small but pleasant collection of flumes and swimming pools, the Tavernelle Aquapark is a great place to visit for all ages and is just a 25 minute drive from the resort of Castaglione del Lago. There are areas for toddlers and loungers for adults, located in between the brightly coloured twisting and turning tubes. There are toilets and places to have a snack on site.

Regions to visit

Perugia

Why not spend a day exploring Umbria's capital, and largest city, Perugia. The city boasts a large number of museums, galleries, churches, palaces and its Duomo to keep the whole family occupied. Some sights include the Palazzo dei priori, the Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria, Church of Saint 'Angelo and Museo Archeologico Nazionale dell'Umbria to name a few. Perugia also offers a wide choice of restaurants, bars, cafeterias and gelaterias and the city has a relaxed yet lively nightlife. Each year Perugia plays host to Umbria Jazz, Europe’s top jazz festival featuring concerts and live performances by many famous acts.

Other Places of interest

Perugina Chocolate Factory

Taste the famous chocolate from its recognisable shiny blue wrapper, the Perugina Baci, straight from the factory it is produced from. Located a 15 minute drive from the centre of Perugia, the factory also has a museum and a gift shop, however pre-booking for a place in the English speaking tour is highly recommended.
