The fourth-largest lake in Italy, Lago di Trasimeno is not a bad location for swimming, fishing and other water sports, but hardly comparable with the country’s northern lakes. The only blemish is the autostrada along its northern shore. In 217 BC this area witnessed one of the bloodiest battles in Roman history as Hannibal's Carthaginians routed Roman troops under Consul Flaminius, killing 16,000. The battlefield extended from Cortona and Ossaia (Place of Bones), in Tuscany, to the small town of Sanguineto (The Bloody), just north of the lake.

It is advisable to check also the availability of the apartments in Perugia and the apartments in Gubbio.
