Castiglione del Lago

Apart from the charm of its appearance, Castiglione del Lago has all the aquatic sports to offer: sailing, windsurfing, water-skiing, canoeing, swimming and sun-bathing; or you can go trekking or by mountain-bike along the tracks which surround the lake far from the sounds of asphalt and tarmaccadam. There are tennis courts, exercise tracks, beach-volley, stables for riding and hacking. The food is typically local from the lake, enriched with dishes from nearby Tuscany. You can eat in restaurants, in centres for agriturism (farmhouse holidays), or in bistros and wine bars, and you will always be treated with the efficiency and courtesy which has made Umbria so loved by everyone.
