We spent much of our day on the beach by the side of Lake Trasimeno and saw the boat trips leave every half hour or so for the island. We thought we would complete our day and have a cooling boat trip across the water....More

Liked the history but not the climbing on sometimes rough tracks. Visiting the church and views were enjoyable.

There is a great vibe, lots of history in little things! 1 euro to go around 3 museums! Totally worth the visit

Cliche though it may be, when you step off the little ferry and onto this island, you really do feel like you've travelled back in time. Once a thriving fishing community, now only a handful of people still live here. Most of the buildings date...More

Yes, I think there are two small places, but I’m not sure whether the be right by the ferry has rooms for rent.
