This little gem in the middle of Lake Trasimeno is really with a visit if you're spending days in this wonderful part of Italy.
Get the small ferry from either Castiglione or Possignano and spend time aboard to settle down in tempo, because once on the Maggiore you will find yourself spun out of time and into the past.
Go to the top and visit the original church where the holy Francis of Assisi used to come to quite meditation, way from the hustle of Assisi. The locals charge a small fee for entrance and the backstory - an it's really worth it. you can still trace the development in catholic fresca painting dating all the way back to the original church. At it's height this little island held eight churches (!)
The island also house a couple of restaurants and they are both quite alright - but of course they know to charge you for being caught on the island until the next ferry. You properly won't mind, it's a wonderful afternoon.
