Private Driving Services in Umbria with Italy Vacation Specialists to Castiglion Del Lago Umbria

Castiglione del Lago

Cities and Towns in Umbria

 

Originally it was an island. Then the waters of Lake Trasimeno receded and Castiglione del Lago was transformed in promontory with panoramic view of the lake. The Castello del Leone, with its irregular pentagonal shape, four corner towers, and 30-meter high triangular "mastio" tower, dominates the lake and the whole of the surrounding area. It was Frederick II of Swabia who ordered the castle's construction in 1247, as part of his extensive defence system which from Puglia spread across the whole of the Italian peninsular.
 
A walkway links the fortress to the 16th century Palazzo della Corgna, designed by the architect Galeazzo Alessi so as to incorporate the pre-existing Palazzetto Baglioni. Inside the Palazzo one of the most important cycles of late Umbrian-Tuscan mannerist artworks can be seen.
 
The Church of Santa Maria Maddalena was built in 1836 on a Greek cross plan. The interiors of the church are embellished with stuccoes by Piervittori. The Baroque Church of S.Domenico di Guzman features a splendid coffered ceiling and numerous artworks dating back to the 17th century. From Castiglione, boats depart for the three islands of Lake Trasimeno: the Isola Maggiore, Isola Minore and Isola Polvese.

Client Testimonials

In September of 2018 I brought a group of 12 from Venice to Sicily and organized all of my services with the Italy Vacation Specialists. Being a travel agent and in the business, I know how complicated organizing travel arrangements can be in Italy and the IVS team took a huge burden off of me! I would like to start of by saying "THANK YOU" both for the amazing job you did on our trip. There was not one complaint from anybody. All of our transfers, drivers and guides were right on time. This is why we have 3 more groups to send you for 2019 and really looking forward to working with you again!
