3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 The church of “Sante Maria Degli Angelo”, large, with a high
dome and two towers, imposing.
All of the above mentioned towns and all other large towns
on this road are situated high up on cone shaped promi-
nences havering around some old castle ruin which has ^for^ cen-
turies, ceased to afford them protection. Now so quiet, sleepy
and rusty, basking in the hot sun like lizzards on a a wall
On, through the large ancient city of Perugia to the
lake of Trasimeno beautifully bordered with olive clad slopes
and containing three pretty islands. Eight miles in diameter
and nearly thirty in circumference, celebrated for the bloody
battle between Hannibal and the Romans B.C. 217.
