WHAT TO VISIT
AT YOUR RIGHT UMBRIA AT YOUR LEFT TUSCANY
The Trasimeno Lake, its island and all lovely towns (like Passignano perfect for an aperitivo night on the lake shores) around it give the opportunity to visit small medieval towns, for children we advice to take the boats and visit Maggiore and Polvese islands (Lucia has always available all ferry hours).
On the right the green Umbria offers many ancient towns to visit: the small but ADORABLE town of Corciano (super romantic at night!), Gubbio and Spello medieval towns full of churches, museums and history. At 45 minutes by car with the highway a special visit is mandatory to Assisi and its Cathedral.
On your left lots of stunning Tuscan towns and cities are pretty near from la Dogana. The magical Cortona, perfect for a romantic walk at night or for visiting its stunning churches (included the so called Devil Route church or the Eremo of San Francesco were the peace of the forest and the waterfall fills the hearts and the souls.
With the car in 1 hour you are at the Medieval town of Arezzo where the first week end of each month there is the beautiful antique forniture market (here the link: http://www.fieraantiquaria.org ) where we also bought many dogana’s ancient pieces for the apartments! At 45 minutes by car the famous city of Siena with its towers and its stunning Cathedral. On the way back to la Dogana if you like shopping there is the Valdichiana Outlet (link: http://www.valdichianaoutlet.it/en/home ) with lots of brands and super discounts (Nike, Adidas, Levis, Intimissimi etc.).
