is a charming, mostly mediaeval, walled town about 6 km from Lake
Trasimeno over which it offers a splendid view. The
islands of the lake are sharply visible on a clear day. The few
streets form concentric ovals that lead to the main piazza, Piazza
Grande, which is the location of a fine 15 C fountain. For such a
small town, Panicale has some remarkable art including two works
of Perugino, one a magnificent fresco, in the Church of San
Sebastiano. The 18 C Cesare Caporali Theatre is one of the
smallest in Umbria. Panicale is well-provided with accommodation
and good restaurants.
Worth a visit.
