I love visiting the historic centre of Perugia. It has a special magic. There is always something happening there - markets, festivals, exhibitions, concerts. I particularly enjoy the Umbria Jazz Festival in July. A wonderful atmosphere and great fun for all ages.

Amazing network of ancient streets and walkways with breath-taking architecture. Take your time to plan at least 2 days to see all of the old town.

This is classic Italy- great place to walk around, shop or stop for a cafe or bite to eat during the day. The architecture is stunning. Great place to visit.

We stayed about 25 minutes from Perugia so visited the town on numerous occasions but the Old Town just once. It combines old town charm and a vibrancy from the many restaurants and shops along the Corso Vannucci as well as an educational institution in one of the old buildings (Nobile Collegio del Cambio) At the end of the Corso...

This is just a wonderful town to visit. It has just about everything you could want in a town. Interesting old streets and buildings to explore, the amazing Etruscan walls and the Rocca Paolina, restaurants where we had truly wonderful meals, elevators to take you up and down the high parts of town and the fascinating Mini Metro transport system....

We have been to this lovely old town of Perugia twice for a weeks visit, each time during the Jazz festival. There is a lot to see and it is well worth a few days stay if you are looking for somewhere not as well known as other parts of Italy. Perugia, is such a beautiful and charming place to... More

Easy pedestrian access by escalators, through the lower levels of the fortified castle. Brilliant views, no traffic, many places to visit. Take two days and a great experience will be had.

Lovely old town - quite large with lots of restaurants and shops. Lots of interesting buildings and churches. Would love to visit at night - maybe next time. Very interesting

One of the most beautiful cities I have busied. The historical centre with its magnificent buildings, churches, aqueduct, lanes, shops and restaurants. The historical centre has fairly steep lanes, good walking shoes a must.
