Just off the main square (Piazza IV Novembre) is this hidden historic gem. The well dates back to the 3rd century B.C. and is over 120 feet deep. The entrance to the museum is down a small alley, past a restaurant. )Entry fee is a very reasonable 3 euros). Once inside, I watched a short (10 minute) film about the well which was very interesting (in Italian with English subtitles). Then I passed through a turnstile and descended a set of narrow stone steps to get to the glass bridge that spans one of the widest parts of the well. For safety, only 10 visitors are allowed at a time. This, coupled with my exploration of Perugia’s Rocca Paolina (underground city), was a highlight of my visit. Absolutely fascinating!

This well is amazing and well worth visiting. The skill and engineering know how to build is incredible. It would be hard to build now let alone 2300 years ago

Did a quick visit here when in the city to visit the chocolate festival. It doesn’t take long, there is a short film too. Well worth a pop in to have a look.

You have to hand it to the Etruscans... the well allowed them solace during sieges. They had no choice but to team up with the Romans.... imagine how different things would be if they had been the conquerors. The wives were only mildly impressed. Mercifully quick if there's no line.
