A medieval village on Lake Trasimeno
On the northern part of Lake Trasimeno, straddling Umbria and Tuscany, lies the enchanting village of Tuoro.
It extends to the slopes of Monte Castelluccio and is historically linked to the famous battle of 217 BC, which resulted in the defeat of the Roman army, crushed by Carthaginian power. The Hannibal Museum commemorates this event, introducing visitors in a detailed narrative through an immersive experience, culminating in the 4D cinema room: an eight-minute video reconstructs the highlights of the Battle of Trasimeno, with 3D graphics and multi-sensory effects.
The historic centre of Tuoro is typically medieval and home to countless examples of fascinating architecture, including the Palazzo della Capra and Church of Santa Maria Maddalena. There are also plenty of nature trails to explore through forests, accompanied by the Rio river, leading to idyllic locations, like Campo del Sole, a unique open-air museum featuring 27 sculpted columns set in a park on the banks of Lake Trasimeno.
Last but not least, there are countless beautiful beaches along the lake, where you can sunbathe and swim during the day and enjoy music and dancing late into the night.
