“What's all the Fuss?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

For me this church was just OK-I like over the top, marble, a symphony of angels, paintings, stucco and to be surrounded by relics, gold and saints; this has none of that! It is, as advertised very simple. However I did enjoy the walk there very much. From the center, walking along Via Battisti was beautiful with great views going downhill then going up hill through the neighborhood on Via Garibaldi; this made the visit worthwhile in addition to climbing the tower of Cassero di Porta S. Angelo. Otherwise, if you need a city escape and some quite time with out glitz and glamour, this is your place. Gratis entry.

“Worth a walk out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Head a little way out of the city centre to find this ancient building, once a roman temple, now a church. It's small and somewhat plain but with terrific atmosphere. Next to the museum of the medieval walls. Lovely views everywhere.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

Well first of all I loved the location! At the end of its own little strada, the temple comes into view immediately as you turn on to the old stone roadway. It's a slight uphill walk to the temple with a substantial lawn and stone pathway leading to the entrance. Much unlike the chiesa's, cathedrals, Basilicata, and Duomo of Italy, the temple is not huge. It is a little gem the beauty of which is its simplicity and setting.

“An oasis of rest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013 via mobile

Tips is the oldest church in Umbria. It is not the most beautiful because of the decorations since it has almost none. But tips made the church beautiful because of its simplicity. Really a must-see in Perugia

“Divine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013

This circular church is a total joy. It is simple and beautiful inside, and there is something very special in the atmosphere there. The altar is in the centre, surrounded by pews in the round.
