Tuoro sul Trasimeno is in the Province of Perugia in the Italian region of Umbria, located about 25 km northwest of Perugia. It sits in a dominant position on a small hill that juts out over the plains on the northern shore of Lake Trasimeno. It is a small fishing village that probably took its name from a fishing technique adopted in the lake: the one with the "bulls". There are many interesting and historical nature trails in the area, and it is within easy reach of many other places of interest including Arezzo which is approx. 46km away.
