Panicale 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.
