Come to Isola Maggiore and discover Lake Trasimeno's Legend of Love- It is part of the charm of the island Most legends about lake Trasimeno revolve around Agilla nymph of the lake and prince Trasimeno son of the God Tyrrhenium. The love between nymph and prince bloomed in one of lake Trasimeno's islands. The story tells that one day Trasimeno got attracted from an angelic singing to an island on the lake. And there and then Trasimeno and Agilla saw each other for the first time and it was love at first sight. But destiny was against them and their happiness lasted only one day, the day in which they met and got married. The day after their marriage Trasimeno decided to have a swin in the lake and while Agilla was standing on the seashore Trasimeno got suddenly under the water and never came back up again. His body was never found and Agilla never gave up the hope to be one day reunited to her beloved Trasimeno so she kept looking for him day after day after day. The grieving nymph spent up to her last few days of life searching for Trasimeno and on a little boat Agilla would check each and every boat in the lake looking for her missing love. The fishermen say that when in summer the wind blowing from Toscany comes this way you can hear Agilla crying. And when sailors cross the lake and sudden waves shake the boat they say is Agilla's spirit who believes to have found her true and only love again.
