“Magical Time Machine to the 60's”

La Citta della Domenica
Ranked #51 of 177 things to do in Perugia
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 May 2016 via mobile

It was a wonderful day with the kids during the week. There had been not many people around which increased the magic feeling in this park. You feel the nostalgia from the 60's where this park has been created, which also reminded me a lot to my grandparents. This is not the park for people looking for action like in Lego Land or Gardaland, this park is for people enjoying walks in nature and travelling back in time, when fairy tales did not have to compete against Harry Potter or Star Wars to catch a child's attention. Great park for families looking for some Cowboys and Indians experience, enjoying to see diverse animals and to climb on buildings not build on plastic, but build to last the next 100

We visited this park during our holiday in Perugia, we had 5 kids with us (from 3 to 13) and all of them loved it. The place is rustic and screams for some basic maintenance but the area itself is very nice! The views of Perugia from this park are fantastic!

All the kids loved the go-karts but you have to pay an extra € 1.50 for the ride (2 laps). There is a small and easy maze which was a lot of fun for the children. The train ride seems to run only once or twice a day.

The restaurant/cafe at the entrance offers burgers, hot dogs, pizza and small dishes. The quality of the food is just like in you average gas station. The other restaurants and the bar were closed.

This is a place to visit with a bunch of kids where they will definitely have a lot fun!

Città della domenica is a staple park here in Perugia, I even went there when I was young, more than 30 years ago.
I must say most of the attractions are the same, a little run downs, however the zoo area has been redone and is very nice.
It is obvious that the park is doing the best it can with limited funds and children have a blast. It is sad that the go-karts and bumper boats are not included in the hefty price-tag, considering they are the only modern ride. Some of the highlights, besides the many animals, were the live fairy-tale characters, the train ride, two large slides, the Princess beauty castle, live animal shows and the kangaroos.
We take the kids once a year and enjoy a day at the park, I just wish there were some amusement park rides. Truthfully speaking there were mode attractions back in the 80's, most of the current ones were also there in the 80's....

My advice is to go, but don't expect something like Disneyland, it is a different experience worth the price.

The Città della Domenica is a park with attractions for children, but there is also a fantastic pizza place and restaurant which has got good dishes and great views. Inside, it is a very large space so I don't normally book to go there. The best thing is the view just outside the main building. You can have a sense of the whole of Perugia, it's all in front of you to enjoy. Take your camera!
Only downside is you need a car to get there, because it's out of town and there are no buses to take you there.

Just getting here is an adventure. Up a pot-holed road seemingly going nowhere, with no signposting that I saw (use satnav). The views from the car park over Perugia are impressive. There looked to be lots to do. But the truth is this place is in need of serious investment. I'm not just talking about a lick of paint, but a lot of the so-called attractions are crumbling away or semi-deserted. Whatever you do, don't trek up the hill to the fairytale castle, it really really isn't worth it. On the plus side, there was no issue with crowds and the fact that it was so overgrown meant there was plenty of shade. Us adults did get some amusement from just how run down and pointless it all was and how creepy some of the attractions were. And, despite being bored some of the time, there were some bits the kids enjoyed, such as the big slide and the boats (extra charge) and the surreal Jesse James show, and there were animals, albeit it not very notable ones. There was no unifying theme. Definitely not worth the entry fee. I can't quite bring myself to give it one star because the kids (who it was for) enjoyed some of it, the staff were friendly and I came away feeling perplexed rather than angry.
