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.
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.
The old village of Paciano is a small maze of narrow roads and piazzas protected by the medieval stone walls. There are a few traditional restaurants and cafes, a good selection of basic amenities such as a pharmacy, mini-market and post office and some historic architecture including the Church of San Carlo Borromeo.
The “TrasiMemo” Museum in Paciano holds the key to the memories of the community’s heritage. There are exhibitions on traditional artisan crafts from all around the Lake Trasimeno area. Local people hold talks in the museum and there is also a public workshop and play areas for children.
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.
