If you are already in the old town of Perugia, then take a walk down Via Cesare Battisti to the arc. The view is amazing! You can see an old aqua duct on the hill (used as a walkway now), then you will see the...More

This arch is built over 2000 years by the Etrusks. Absolutely impressive that hands designed and built this Arco Etrusco. And that it has survived all wars and other threads. More of the Etruskian history can be found in the archeological museum of Perugia.

More majestic than expected. Built in the 3rd century BC by the Etruscans, before the Roman period. The Etruscans fell to the Romans in 40 BC. The Gate was restored by Augustus (the first Emperor of the Roman Empire) after his victory in the Perusine...More

Our hotel was nearby Arco Etrusco so we've been passing through it several times a day. Every time he impressed me again. The question that imposes itself: how and with what technique they have build something so impressive???

This Etruscan archway was one of the original archways to enter the old city and there was buildings above it that were destroyed over the years. When you enter the site you go into the old city with its massive walls of rock!!

We set out to find the arch. It was a bit of a walk but absolutely worth it. As you gaze at it you cannot help but think of how many others have passed underneath it. Well worth the walk.

As you stand in front of the arch and stare at it, you can picture what the city must have been like 2300 years ago. This was one of the gates into the city. It's hard not to feel transported into a different world

An easy walk down Ulisse Rocchi street behind dome (nice little bakery along the way). This arch was built around the 3rd century B.C., and was one of the 7 entrance gates to Perugia in the Etruscan period. About two centuries after its construction, the...More

This really created respect for the Etruscans. Layer upon layer of civilization, with the Romans for once not being the foundation. Remarkably complete and strong looking. OK, it only takes a few minutes, but it's definitely a good few minutes. Opposite the gate you can...More

There is no way these gates - admittedly old and historic - are a top attraction in this town. You walk up and down hill all day and to climb just to see this is not satisfying.
