Tuoro sul Trasimeno
- Restaurants - Typical Products - Services -
The centre, founded in the late Middle Ages, stands in an area which was the setting of one of the most disastrous and legendary battles of ancient times, in which 16,000 Roman soldiers, were annihilated (in 217 BC) by the Cartaginese army of Hannibal.
Its name apparently derives from the so-called "tuoro" fishing which was once practiced on Lake Trasimeno. A short distance from the town lies the parish church of Confine, a Romanesque building of the early 12C.
The Maggiore Island lies within the district, it is the second largest of the three islands of Trasimeno.
