It is right in the heart of one of the richest areas in the world for history, art and culture. Within a two hour drive you can see a substantial part of the world's artistic heritage including ancient, medieval and Italian Renaissance art. There are also a wealth of cultural and folklore events around the lake. There are three artistic and environmental trails – Perugino and the Umbrian School in the 15th and 16th centuries; the sancturies of the Trasimeno area; and the artistic appreciation of the della Corgna (details from local tourist information offices).
