Great views in the distance you might as well see the Lago Trasimeno which is very famous for being the setting of battle between the Romans and Hannibal. You can see a lot around from here.

Pick up a gelato from nearby Gelato Ti Amo (see review) or a Pizza al taglio from next door (didn't try but lots of locals went there to get pizza), and come have it here around sunset time; maybe also get a bottle of local wine. Perfection.

This is a great place to view the all area, you can park outside of the city, and use the escalators to get there.
