Take a break from big cities and bright lights. Lake Trasimeno and Panicale.
If you have enough of the big and very renowned cities of Italy with their great treasure of art but with a huge number of tourists packed in the main museums; if you have enough of the pollution and crowds of the streets and canals take a break in Umbria. You can stay for a day coming from Rome or Florence or even longer.
Umbria has always been considered a peaceful region, the land of art, saints and good food. In our full-day tour we can visit the Medieval hamlet of Panicale, its winding up cobbled streets and its treasures of great art such as the wonderful martyrdom of St. Sebastian by Perugino, who worked in the Sistine Chapel too. Enjoy the light and view of the Trasimeno lake, sorrounded by the silver greenish olive trees that make this lake unique in Italy and taste the emerald green excellent olive oil and the delicious food of this area. Take a break, relax and go slow.
this tour is very much a sort of "customized tour" therefore the itinerary will meet your requirements as much as possible and will be decided upon our first contact.
It is a very special tour that gives the chance of enjoying both art, history and gastronomy and wine.
A fantastic relaxing day far away from the chaos of big cities.
