Castiglione del Lago
Comune Castiglione del Lago, Province Perugia, Region Umbria.
Castiglione del Lago, located in the path of the most beautiful villages in Italy, extends in the north-western Umbria, is bordered by the Tuscan provinces of Arezzo and Siena and is the capital of the district of Lake Trasimeno.
Various are the outings: that of art, e.g., because we are in the lands of Perugino and Pinturicchio, but also of other great teachers, and the architecture, with a truly imposing presence in the territory of dozens of castles, manors and fortresses.
Remarkably interesting is the gastronomic journey: this is the area of the Colli del Trasimeno wines, but also close to that of the Chianti, in the heart of the Sienese hills: about tens minutes from Montepulciano and its Nobile di Montalcino and its Brunello unsurpassed, long considered one of the five best wines in the world.
Equipped beaches, surfing, sailing school, swimming pool, tennis courts, bird watching at Oasis Valley in Polvese Island, declared a scientific-educational Park.
Lovers of relaxation will find a wide choice of Spas that are just a short time and offer every type of treatment, both therapeutic and aesthetic or simply relaxing.
