Beaches

Beaches

Although Umbria is a landlocked region, you can still get a taste of the Italian beach life by visiting Lake Trasimeno. It’s central Italy’s largest lake, ringed with attractive beaches where you can soak up the sun or take a cool dip in the clear waters. There are nine beaches in total, located in Castiglione del Lago, Trasimeno, Magione and Passignano. All offer typical amenities including sun loungers, umbrellas, cafes and snack bars. The lake’s waters are monitored carefully to ensure they’re clean and safe, making this a top spot for swimming in the summer months.

Get out on the water by renting a canoe, sailboat or pedal boat during your Umbria holidays. With brisk breezes, Lake Trasimeno is the ideal spot to learn how to sail. Stay in a lakeside villa or resort hotel to make the most of Umbria’s beaches. A number of charming medieval villages are situated around the lake offering panoramic views.
