The Palio delle Barche, or competition of the boats, is an historical reenactment of the power struggle between two important Perugian families: the Baglioni and the Oddi. The spectacular race takes place on land and on the lake waters on the last Sunday of July. The burning of the castle is particularly thrilling, as are the fireworks over the lake, and both attract thousands of visitors from all over. During the event the local tavernas open their doors to offer the finest of local culinary tradition.
