Isola Maggiore

Isola Maggiore – Lake Trasimeno

Isola Maggiore is a pretty island in Lake Trasimeno, Italy’s largest lake, in the Umbria region (see Umbria map). Today it’s known for lace-making but in the 13th century it was deserted and in 1211 Francis spent a month on the island fasting for Lent.
