Tuoro sul Trasimeno Vacation Packages

A village has stood on this site since the Middle Ages. The town takes its name from an old fishing technique that is no longer practical here. Notice a few remaining traces of medieval architecture as you explore the town. Hear about how the Romans were defeated by the Carthaginians at this strategic location between Tuscany and Perugia.
Admire the well-preserved features of the 11th-century La Pieve di Santa Maria di Confine.
