“not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

Once in Perugia, you Have to visit the Rocca Paolina, an old town that you can reach via escalators. Old homes and shops perfectly kept will bring you straight into the middle-age. Amazing, one of a kind.

“An underground walk way, not to be missed if in Perugia.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

Just before you go down there are colums which you can whisper into in the corner and you can hear it in the other corner-try it! lots of people on the underground walk way walking to and from work but still a great piece of history to be able to walk into.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

Juast across from the Brufani Palace. A moving escalator will take you down (and back up) to the ancient town. It is a MUST SEE in Perugia as well as the City Hall with a museum.

“another world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

Going down the escalators you feel like you are going into another world. You could imagine to see old carriages and people dressed in medioeval armours. Fascinating
