Private Cortona & Trasimeno Lake

Boat Tour, Excursions
Meet your personal driver at your hotel lobby and start an amazing daytrip on the border of Tuscany and Umbria, starting from the town of Cortona, on southern Tuscany. Take your time to discover the historical center of Cortona with its the museums, the city walls and the palaces, in a fascinating atmosphere that will bring you back in time. Starting from Piazza della Repubblica, the main square where the “cardo” and the “decumano” cross, you will see two palaces overlooking the square, the Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo and the Palazzo Comunale (Town Hall). Don’t miss a look at Palazzo Casali (16th century), which has always been considered the palace of culture and is today the seat of the beautiful Museum of the Etruscan Academy and the Public Library. If you continue along via Casali, you will get to piazza del Duomo and then Via del Gesù, famous for some medieval houses that are perfectly preserved. The facades jutting out onto the street and reinforced by wooden beams are very impressive. Your daytrip will continue to Trasimeno Lake, the largest of the six Regional Parks of Umbria and one of the most important wetlands areas in Italy for the presence of plant species, fauna and fish of great importance. Your personal driver will bring you to one of the many ports and, from then on, you will be in your guide’s hands! Take the boat to circumnavigate the area, sailing up from the ancient fishing village of Passignano sul Trasimeno, set on the shore between the blue waters of the lake and the green of the surrounding hills, or Castiglione del Lago, the Lake “protector”. The town’s most important landmark is, without a doubt, Palazzo della Corgna. During the excursion, the stop at Isola Maggiore will be worth a visit! The Isola Maggiore is the only one of the three islands that has a stable population. It still preserves the unique atmosphere of a 15th century fishing village. At the end of the tour your personal driver will lead you back to your location.
