Trasimeno Lake: events, routes and activities

Come and discover the Lord Byron's "silver veil" that bewitched with its charm several poets, painters and travellers across centuries.

Located in the northern side of Umbria, at the border with Tuscany, the Trasimeno Lake is a truly natural heaven. 

The fourth largest lake in Italy, it owes its name to an ancient legend: the story goes that the fearless prince Trasimeno, son of the wise Etruscan king Tirreno di Lidia, fell desperately in love with the nymph Agilla, and later he married her on the lake's shores.

Nonetheless, the wrath of Gods fell harmfully on the young lovers: today it's still possible to hear in the distance, among the gentle breeze darting over the lake, the moaning of the nymph Agilla, continuously searching for her lover swallowed by waves.

Breathtaking landscapes, old stone villages, typical flavours and water sports for all kinds of fun, but also big events, among ancient traditions, music and great shows: discover the Lord Byron's "silver veil", that across centuries bewitched with its charm several poets, painters and travellers.
