Discover Lake Trasimeno’s Isola Maggiore and Isola Polvese with the Busitalia boat service

Trasimeno Lake navigation service

Travel on Lake Trasimeno, between the islands and the main lake towns, with the Busitalia service.

What to see on Lake Trasimeno

Isola Maggiore is the main island on Lake Trasimeno and the only one inhabited all year round. Once you disembark, you can visit the town centre with its medieval architecture and most important monuments: the Church of San Salvatore that safeguards a painting by Sano di Pietro, the house of the Capitano del Popolo and the Gothic-style church dedicated to San Michele Arcangelo, with frescoes dating from the 12th to 14th centuries. Also worth a visit are the Lace Museum and the places where Saint Francis of Assisi lived, in particular the Chapel that preserves the bed on which he slept.

Isola Polvese, the largest island, is most famous for being part of the Lake Trasimeno Fauna Oasis. This location offers more than just walks and breathtaking landscapes. A short stroll from the port is the 15th-century Rocca, whose perimeter walls surround the courtyard used as a theatre for open-air performances. Following the path to the left of the castle, you will reach the Aquatic Plants Garden, designed in the 1950s by one of Italy’s leading landscape architects, Pietro Porcinai, and home to a wide variety of both aquatic and Mediterranean plants. The walk concludes at the island’s beach, equipped with a playground and volleyball courts, ideal for young and old.
