Located in Umbria, the greenest Italian region on its border with Tuscany, thought many to be the best of both region. Paciano, Umbria is a small medieval village on the edge of a park overlooking the south shore of Trasimeno Lake (400 meters above see level). Paciano is ranked by European Community as one of the top ten 'ideal villages' in Italy for the overall positive quality of life. It is also an ideal center for sightseeing trips to countless cultural points of interest in Umbria and Tuscany.

The village is located approximately six miles from Chiusi Railways Station. From the train station in Chiusi.

The wine town of Montepulciano is a 30 minute drive, while Montalcino and the Chianti area are a 45 minute drive.
