Perugia is a wonderful area that is packed full of things to see and do. It doesn’t matter if you are young or older, there is sure to be something that appeals to you, whether it is some culture in the theatre, or perhaps letting your hair down once the sun sets. This is a fantastic place to have on your Italy holiday destination list.
Umbria’s lovely petite capital, it seeps history through all of its cobbles alleys and magnificent palazzi. Rolling fields lead up to it high above on a hill. It is wonderfully free from tourists most of the time which makes it ideal for exploration, however during events like the Umbria Jazz Festival and the annual Chocolate Festival the atmosphere of the city magical.
Perugia boasts a pristine medieval centre and an international student population. You don't have to look far for reminders of its colourful history, from ancient arches and medieval basilicas to Renaissance frescoes by the likes of Perugino and Raphael.
