Castiglione del Lago (Umbria)

Castiglione del Lago is a town in the Province of Perugia of Umbria, on the southwest corner of Lake Trasimeno. Castiglione del Lago has evolved on what used to be an island - the fourth island of Lake Trasimeno, in its south west region. Over the centuries, as the town grew, the flat gap between the island and the shore was filled with piazze, houses, churches and other buildings.

What others are saying about Umbria

I am trying to find my Italian roots.  I have documents for my grandfather but I want to find his parents and grandparents.

I have names in my grandmother's line but I need help to validate my findings.  What sources can I use while I am in Italy.

Hi, does anyone have any recommendations for where to find an Italian/English speaking caretaker for a property we're buying in Umbria? 

@joncoh asks:

Hi there - it's time to renew our house/contents insurance, and yet again Intasure have bumped up their premium, this time by nearly 20%, despite the fact that we have never claimed, and they have also removed earthquake cover.
