Castiglione del Lago is located along what was once an important road, close to the south of Orvieto, Chiusi and Arezzo in the west to the north. Its location in an area so contention, first between the Etruscans and the Romans, later between the towns of Tuscany and Perugia, on numerous occasions caused the destruction of the original fortifications, rebuilt several times. Founded by the Romans under the name Novum Clusium (New Chiusi), stands on a hill in ancient times was the fourth island of Lake Trasimeno (the three islands that still exist are the Maggiore, Minore and Polvese) before the strip d 'water that separated it from the mainland was filled. In the urban structure of the old town is easily seen in the three parallel streets that cut longitudinally over the country (decumani), the Roman origin.
