We have traveled extensively for the past 10 years and we just had an experience we will never forget. We were extending another trip to spend a week in the Tuscany and Umbria area of Italy. We stayed at Villa Trasimeno, a bed and breakfast near Passigano Sul Trasimeno on a hillside overlooking historic Lake Trasimeno. It is within easy reach for day trips from of Florence to Orvieto and Montalcino to Assisi. The hosts, Carmelo and Luana Oppedisano, took care of our every need including breakfast each day and a special three course dinner each evening. Carmelo is a wonderful chef and Luana is a fantastic pastry chef. During the day Carmelo took us to fifteen villages all within a 1.5 hour driving radius in his very comfortable van. His knowledge of the history of all of Italy and his insights on artists, sculptures, and paintings was extraordinary. No matter where we went, he was able to recommend a restaurant for a remarkable lunch. On the last day, we asked him to take us to some villages where tourists do not go and he produced an unforgettable day. Carmelo and Luana lived in the United States for several years owning restaurants in Cleveland and their English is perfect. For seven days we dined on specialties with never a repeat item. We had met Carmelo on a tour in Rome and his knowledge of all of Rome and its history was impressive. By the end of the week we were part of the family and highly recommend Villa Trasimeno, Carmelo, and Luana.
