    Things to do on holiday in Castiglione del Lago, Umbria, Italy

    Although there are numerous fascinating sights to be seen within the town walls of Castiglione del Lago, there are two features that really stand out as essential viewing from a Castiglione del Lago holiday rental villa or apartment. The Fortress of the Lion (Castello del Leone), with its distinctive pentagonal design, dates back to the 12th Century and has some remarkable feats of engineering within its walls. The Town Hall is no less impressive, although much of its appeal comes from its Renaissance style as opposed to its powerful appearance. It is here that you can find the civic museum and gallery which houses beautiful Renaissance frescos and paintings from local masters.

    Every other year, Castiglione del Lago springs into life as the bi-annual Coloriamo I Cieli festival fires up.
