“Do Not Miss Chiesa San Pietro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

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!

“Mindblowing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

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.

“such history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

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 independence.

“Molto impressionante!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

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!
