More information than you could possibly utilize on one trip can be found at Perugia’s travel website, Perugia Online.

This one site provides a wealth of information about Perugia, including where to shop, dine, stay and entertain yourself. Here are some interesting tidbits found at the site:

*Most shops close in the middle of the day, roughly from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., but some don’t, especially those in areas visited most by tourists.

*Perugia is 6 hours ahead of the United States’ Eastern Standard Time.

*Many churches have strict dress codes and visiting them – even during non-service hours – require you change out of your shorts and flip flops, or make arrangements ahead of time to be wearing proper clothes.

*The food in Perugia is generally simple, with a base of olive oil, sometimes truffles and boar.

The Perugia Online website is incredibly detailed and useful. With the information here, you may not find a need for a traditional guide book. It is like an online guide book.
