    If you arrive via the bus terminal this is the first major structure you exeperience as you ride up the escalators and some stpes with your baggage to reach the upper levels of the city of Perugia. Rocca Paolina was a fortess built by Pope Paul II to control and pretect the city at a time of unrest. It is a massive stone structure with tunnels that wind down to lower levels of the city.It is well signed in English. Avoid struggling with luggage when you visit.

    My friend and I had a lovely time in Perugia and used the Minimetro several times. Perugia is a wonderful city and our only complaint was that most of the restaurants do not have gluten free food which is difficult for snyone with that intolerance

    Piazza IV Novembre is the heart of Perugia and you will walk past it to the various streets and small alleys that wind their way down to below the town.. It has the Fontana Maggiore , a 1274 fountain built to celebrate the arrival of water via an aquaduct and the impressive cathedral and many other historic buildings.

    I joined a one hour virtual tour by Heygo. Our guide, Patrizia-Umbria, was very knowledgeable and spoke very clearly. She was so interesting that it make up for travelling virtually during this Covid time. Firstly, we took the Minimetro with her to the hill at the top. She focused on the Perugino outlet and told us very interesting story about Luisa Spagnoli who started the Baci (Kisses) chocolates. In the shop, we saw the different flavours and types of chocolates. We also learned about how Luisa Spagnoli also thought of the idea of using angora yarn for knitwear including shawls, boleros, and fashionable garments which she trademarked l'Angora Spagnoli.
    I strongly recommend a tour by Patrizia as she was so enthusiastic in leading the tour with her knowledge and friendly mannerism.

    This was a great wine tasting! The food was delicious, our host was very knowledgeable and was able to answer every and any question we had. The oils were so good that we had six bottles shipped to the US along with their truffle honey and truffle salt. I would recommend this tasting to anyone!

    I recommend the walks around the lake (I recommend "Passignano sul Trasimeno") or the visit of the islands (I recommend a visit to the "Isola Maggiore", with ferry "Busitalia")

    When you are in beautiful Perugia, it is one of the must go places. It is an impressive
    basilica at the center of the city.

    We loved the design and layout of the newly refurbished museum. The exhibits are exquisite and the descriptions very helpful in seeing the development of art through the late medieval to the Renaissance. Their exhibits peter out after 1600 so the last few rooms are unnecessary, but the richness of most of the rooms are truly wonderful. I didn’t think it was expensive. The window seats are special.

    The fountain has sat in the Piazza Novembre in the heart of Perugia since around 1275 and was erected when a new aquaduct was built to provide water to the elevated town of Perugia. They managed to get water , without pumps via a forced pressure duct system to flow up hill. For those that have seen the aquaduct it was quite a feat.The fountain is impressive and sits below the cathedral and cannot be missed when walking through Perugia

    This octagonal temple is not on the tourist track, slightly away from the centre.
    We were alone there - very meditative experience.

    Lovely architecture, worth exploring. Significant medieval religious art work. Quite, with few people. Good window seats to rest as walk round.

    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.

    Teresa (the great granddaughter of the first Moretti glass painter) led us through the workshop and told the story of the artists and the amazing art with clarity and heart. I came away with a much greater appreciation of the art and skill needed to produce the exquisite painted glass. The portrait of Queen Margarita has to be seen to be believed. What a treasure this family has preserved! A unique experience, not to be missed.

    Spent nearly a half an hour with my daughter in otherwise empty chambers gazing at Perugino’s creations. Che bello! It was like a private viewing, both here as well as at the Nobile Collegia della Mercanzia, located just a few steps away and added into the ticket for just an extra Euro.
