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.

The lake itself is a haven for sailing and fishing, and you can hire a boat, get a lesson or organise a fishing trip easily from within the town.

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

Fantastic view. We had a wonderful stay- lots of nice villages/cities/lake to visit in the area.

We enjoyed the country side and the view, the swimming pool was very popular. In the house the kitchen was well equipped and the facilities and the bedrooms were excellent. In the shops in Tavernelle we found good food. We did visit lake Trasimeno, the city of Peruiga, and the outlet mall in Valdichiana. We also did run and walk along the roads in the mountains around the Villa. We also lay in the sun and enjoyed the heat. We got good information from the owners side.
