The route

San Savino is a small and beautiful village. Its jewel in the crown is its Castle, a small fortress completed in 1180 and whose dominant position the entire south-eastern slope of the lake, is testimony to how strategically important was as outpost for the town of Perugia. Leaving San Savino you immediately immerse yourself in the orderly and worked fields of the farmers of the area, until you reach a wood in which a large part of the stage later develops. Walking in a wood is not an experience that everyone is lucky enough to live with. Along the Via del Trasimeno, there is a continuous immersion in nature.

Step by step, through woods, cultivated fields and olive groves, you can get to Mongiovino Vecchio (Old Mongiovino), a small village gathered around its castle, built in 1312 for strategic reasons in defense of Perugia, well preserved for tourist reasons.

From there the path continues straight towards Panicale, the end point of the stage. Panicale can be seen in all its beauty on the hill on which it rests quietly, and it is one of “I Borghi più belli d’Italia”, the most beautiful villages in Italy. In Panicale you can find multiple places and monuments to be visited.
