We start from Siena through the hills of Crete Senesi, sail along the northern shore of Lake Trasimeno, the largest body of water in Italy, until you get to the ancient city of Perugia. From the parking lot to get to the city we will travel the escalators that will enable us to cross the ancient archaeological finds and the brick vaults of the Rocca Paolina up to the Giardini Carducci, heart of the city and the beautiful balcony over the valley.
