After breakfast, travel to Lake Trasimeno for a boat ride to Isola Maggiore. Stroll around the island to reach the Scoglio (rock) of St. Francis, a richly spiritual point, testament to the Saint’s visit to the then-deserted island during Lent in 1211. You can still see the spring that he dug with his hands and the boulder imprinted with signs of his knees. Climb up to the parish church of San Michele Arcangelo, on top of the island. Here the breathtaking view of the lake allows you to appreciate its geomorphology, its resources, flora and fauna; from this point you can also sense the dynamics of the defeat of the Roman army under Consul Gaius Flaminius by the Carthaginians of Hannibal (217 b.c.)Lunch at a terrace-restaurant on the lake, choice between one on the island one on the lakeside.
