Enjoy a visit to the charming town of Panicale, one of the most enchanting natural terraces on the Trasimeno lake. It is incredible to see how this small town can boast so many works of art!
Walking through the town with your tour leader, you can visit the beautiful small theatre of the town which construction was commissioned in the 17th century by the wealthy families of the town and the church of St. Michele. Not far from the main square, in a small deconsecrated church admire the magnificent fresco “Martirio di S. Sebastiano” (1505), realized by Pietro Vannucci, also known as “Il Perugino”.
Afterwards we move to a typical small farmhouse owned by a friend of ours, Anna.
Along with her family she takes care of the farmhouse with a great passion that you will notice from the first moment you will meet her. She will be very proud to show you her interesting wine cellar and explain the entire process of making wine. Do not forget to take a walk into the vineyards and taste the wines they produce.
The light-lunch at Anna’s will be a great experience: you will enjoy an authentic atmosphere in which you can truly relax, taste great local foods and good wines.
After lunch we go to visit the world of the famous entrepreneur Cucinelli. Cucinelli produces amazing clothes using cashmere. To say Cucinelli is to highlight how a connection among art, entrepreneurship and great quality choices is possible. Beauty is all around: you can beath it in the laboratory and in any place where this precious yarn is. We do share the concept of this businessman who claims that live and work in the “BEAUTIFUL” helps you to get better.
