This is the main avenue that runs through old Perugia. It’s essentially a pedestrian street. Lining the street are lovely old buildings. Museums, a cathedral, government offices and former palazzos are just some of the wonderful architectural buildings that you will see. There are cafes, restaurants and shops one can linger and spend time enjoying. Be sure the explore the narrow side streets just off the Vannucci.

Corso Vannucci is the main drag through Perugia. If runs in a fairly straight line from Piazza IV Novembre, where the cathedral, fountain and Palazzo Priori are located, to the panoramic lookout at the Rocca Paolina and the Carducci Gardens.
The corso is a pedestrian zone, so it’s a very pleasant, easy, short stroll up to the gardens.
Historic buildings and former palazzos line both sides of the street. We passed restaurants and cafes with outdoor seating as well as plenty of shops. There were familiar names and brands like Furla, Max Mara, Intimissimi, Calzedonia and Footlocker, as well as small clothing boutiques and specialist chocolate and sweet shops.
Further along, we stopped briefly at Piazza Italia, a tiny but pretty garden-like piazza with two small fountains and statues.
The grand, pink and white Palazzo della Provincia overlooking the small piazza is worth a quick look. This is also where you will find the escalator to the underground Rocca Paolina.
The walk ends at the Carducci Gardens, a small city park with a panoramic view over the Umbrian countryside. Afterwards we crossed the road to have a drink at Punto di Vista where we could sot and soak up more of the magnificent views.

During the day the Corso Vannucci is a nice wide pedestrian-only street in the heart of the old Etruscan city of Perugia. Here you find the Duomo (cathedral), the National Gallery of Umbria, the Cambio and many other cultural attractions, as well as outdoor cafes and restaurants and fashionable shops. However, it is not until the tourists leave at about 5-6 pm in the afternoon that the nightly stroll, the "Passeggiata" begins. The Passeggiata occurs in waves, first young families out for a gelato, then older adults sitting in the sidewalk cafes or strolling and chatting with friends. Then at about 10-11 pm the teenagers and young adults begin to appear en masse. The Corso becomes a sea of young people, some dressed casually, others in the height of fashion. The Passeggiata is where they come to see and be seen. This is a fascinating experience of human social behavior which is not to be missed when visiting Umbria. One cautionary note, the Minimetro does not operate after 9:15pm most nights and therefore you will have to have a car or take a taxi when leaving the Corso Vannucci later at night.

This street connects two of the main attractions of bella Perugia: 'Piazza d'Italia' (where the beautiful 'Rocca Paolina' is located) and 'Piazza IV Novembre'. It is very nice to walk down the streets and have a look at the shop windows and to admire the architecture. The restaurants with the tables in the middle of the streetare mostly tourist-traps... however, if you whish to eat there, I do recomment the 'Caffê di Perugia" on 'Via Giuseppe Mazzini', just off Corso Vannucci, in front of the 'Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbira'.

Perugia is stunning. The historical centre with magnificent buildings, churches and shops full beautiful clothes, shoes, ceramics, jewellery, everything you can imagine. Little narrow lanes that twist and turn, leading you to all sorts of views and ancient apartments, wells and little squares. The food is delicious, truffles, famous Perugina chocolates, ice cream, pastries etc. etc. A must see...

This is the main street in Perugia--with luxury shops, caffè, and lots of great restaurants. Do not miss Sandri, the oldest and most historic caffè in the city.

What a great way to spend an afternoon or evening. You can safely stroll from one end to the other in 10 minutes. But, you would never do it in that time. Designer shops , Gelato cafes and restorante line the Corso Vannucci for hours long entertainment and the " people watching" is the best.

If you like upscale shopping or just window shopping, this is a good place to start. It is also great because the Pinacoteca, great pastry and gelato and restaurants are all to be found on and off the Corso.

Corso Vanucci is the main stret in Perugia and frfom it there are many side streets that mostly head down hill and all re worth exploring. The street has some interesting historical buildings including the cathedral and fountain.

If you want to have a cappuccino, watch Perugia animation or set off to discover the historic city and its monuments, you have to go to this street.
It is mandatory
