Trasimeno lake

FOURTH LARGEST LAKE OF ITALY

The Trasimeno district is set in an intriguing borderline area between the Umbria and Tuscany regions, undefined in language and landscape, in the flavour of its cuisine, and in its traditions. It lies right in the centre of Italy, at a point which already in ancient times was close to the routes leading from the centre and from Northern Europe to Rome. A point easily reached and yet secluded, thus, a very special sort of wedding destination.

Trasimeno Lake and its surrounding lands were once part of the Etruscan domains. Remains of this civilisation are still visible today, particularly in the area around Castiglione del Lago. The area was later colonised by the Romans, but the clearest traces of past civilisations that remain visibile today are from the Middle Ages, when a series of castles and fortified towns sprang up in the surrounding hills. Passignano, Monte del Lago and Castiglione del Lago have all remained virtually intact through the centuries. The remains of two castles survive on the Polvese and Maggiore islands.

There are many ancient towns along the Lake Trasimeno shore where you can have either a civil, catholic or symbolic wedding.

Most town halls of these towns were built in the 16th or 17th century and are filled with breathtaking hand-painted frescoes and genuine period furniture and artwork, also many of the churches date back to the 12th century and contain unique and irreplaceable works of art, frescoes and religious artifacts.

The wedding reception venues are endless, you could have it in a spectacular villa with lake view, in an ancient castle, in a more modern restaurant or hotel…it’s up to you!
