The guide book warns you that every inch of this church is covered in paint, gilt or marble and it was not wrong! This is truly a stunning place. There is an entrance fee but you receive an iPad which is loaded with all the...More
It was the last Basilica I visited in Perugia. So beautiful and full of famous paintings inside in the Basilica and in the corner room the Sacristy. You will find several Caravaggio paintings and one Raphael’s painting “Jesus and John the Baptist”. It is in...More
San Pietro is a fascinating church historically and artistically, but there is so much more here. It forms part of the complex, based around various courtyards, of a part of the University, so has a lively student buzz. It also has lovely gardens, including a...More
I happen to stay in a little hotel near this church that would be easy to overlook as it is a little off the beaten path. At the rear, there was a beautiful medieval garden with beautiful views of Perugia. They were about to close...More
By "coherent" is meant decor that is coordinated and not the rococo mish-mash that so many churches exhibit. The garden is more than a kitchen garden, but a retreat from the hubbub of the city. Well worth the walk from city center.

A note on Scavi (10 Replies)
I've noticed travellers on other forums referring to the Scavi tour as 'Disney-ized' and saying that a tour of one of the Catacombs is much more worthwhile. I'd just like to set that straight. I took a tour of the Catacombs of San Sebastiano when I visited Rome in 2008. It was excellent - there were a lot of empty grave niches, art and so on. This morning I was lucky enough to tour the Scavi - the excavations under the Basilica di San Pietro. It was far from Disney-ized. There are glass...More
