Passignano sul Trasimeno is an ancient medieval village, defended by a castle that can be reached thorough a fascinating maze of narrow streets and alleyways, and with a lakeside promenade with a scenic view and a garden.
From the pier a ferryboat leaves regularly to Isola Maggiore, the second largest and only inhabited island on the Trasimeno. A path in the wild will take the visitor around the tiny island, with stops at medieval churches and at
an old crumbling castle. The fishermen’s village still gains popularity from the traditional handmade Irish embroideries.
A short distance from Passignano, visit the Trasimeno battle scene. The battle, part of the second Punic war, was fought in the 3century b. C. and ended up with a harsh defeat for the Roman legions. Along the itinerary,  stop at the
explicative panels, an experience best suited for students.
