Lake Trasimeno Reviews & Ratings
Nice, enjoyable and quiet place!
A relaxing place absolutely a must to visit
A visit to the incredibly beautiful Trasimeno Lake is a MUST if you happen to be in Italy. The emerald waters surrounded by hills and mountains, combined with the small ancient towns that are scattered around the lake, make this place a unique experience! A trip to the 2 islands is also something that you gotta do. Don´t forget to try the delicoius local food too!!! A MUST!!!
Cool shallow lake.. but Dirty water
Beautiful lake in the middle of breath taking Italian country.
