...Of our month-long travels through Italy. The choir itself is amazing - probably the best and most intricate we've ever seen - and there is so much more inside. A delightful time, very close to our hotel, the Signa....and if all of that weren't enough, a lovely flower-filled garden right next door.

concerts here is this beautifull adorned basilica are amazing, the atmosphere magical. the paintings on the wall could do with a cleaning, but then it's nice to see the passage of time and the age of things.

Perugia is infested with Junkies and addicts. I didn't enjoy it at all. I was threatened and when I reported it to a police officer he was rude and dismissive. He even threated to have me locked up! South America is civilised compared to this horrid place. NEVER AGAIN!

Beautiful cathedral on the outskirts of Perugia, but an easy walk from the center. The signs in the garden are written in Italian, but many of the names are the same in English, so you can follow what each symbol is.

Attended the Christmas concert given by The Sixteen at Basilica San Pietro and it was an enlightening experience in the historical architectural as well as musical sense. A stunning building in Medieval Perugia with fabulous views across Bella Umbria. In close proximity is the Medieval Medicinal Herb Gardens and Municipal Gardens where the Spring and Autumn Perugia Flower Shows takes... More

The art in the San Pietro is some of the best in Italy. Not many visitors so you will have the feeling you are on your own special tour!

Absolutely the most striking of the Perugian churches and cathedrals. There is a bit to walk from the centro storico, but it is defo worth the effort.

This lovely church hides behind a former cloister that now houses an agricultural college. It is worth seeking it out, as it is one of the oldest churches in Umbria. Interesting as well is how that entire part of Perugia fought against the Vatican on XX Giugno and the monastery helped the wounded and refugees in that battle for Italian... More

Chiedi a qualcuno di guidare intorno alla cattedrale. There are hidden rooms and the underground altar from the first Christians in this area. Also ask to show you the 'heaven' and the 'inferno'. Very impressive!
