During our Culinary Traveling Genes Adventures in Tuscany, we encourage our guests to discover the wonders of nearby medieval hilltop towns, local villages, and magnificent landscapes during their free time. Creating a list for a guests was not an easy task because there are so many that are incredibly captivating with truly beautiful art, history, traditions, and breathtaking nature and, of course, amazing and incredible food to enjoy along the way.
One of these splendid areas that boasts fantastic views is Lake Trasimeno and its beautiful islands and towns, a favorite being ‘Castiglione del Lago,’ the most picturesque town of the lake. A delightful village overlooking Lake Trasimeno with all the impressiveness of its castle, ‘Rocca del Leone.’ A village that has very ancient Etruscan and Roman origins and that has kept, throughout the centuries, a particular charm, thanks to the beauty of the old town centre, which is still ringed within medieval walls, with an outstanding view of Lake Trasimeno and Valdichiana, towards Cortona.
It is definitely worth a visit!
