Love Umbria!       Love Trasimeno!

San Feliciano

 

At heart San Feliciano remains a small fishing village and a great place if you like sketching and painting not to mention photography. My favourite time is early, around 8/9am to catch the boats bringing in their fish. You can then watch the fishermen cleaning and mending their nets hungrily witnessed by a large number of very well fed cats! There is also a fishing museum and some of the best fish restaurants around. Excelkent pizza as well! The village is within the Parco del Trasimeno and a good, quiet location for a relaxing holiday especially if you are interested in nature or wanting to cycle or walk.

The town itself has some pretty little streets and quaint houses adorned with masses of window boxes and pots full of geraniums. There are also some lovely walks up into the surrounding hills with good views of the lake and Isola Polvese.


San Feliciano is the ferry point for boats to the nature reserve of Isola Polvese and there’s plenty of free parking available.

On a clear day it is worth visiting later in the day to witness one if the most beautiful sunsets around the lake.
