Perugia is the largest and one of the most beautiful cities in Umbria. From the old town, situated on a high hill, you have a fantastic view of the Appinnen peaks, the surrounding villages and Lake Trasimeno.
The heart of Perugia is Piazza Grande, where the medieval fountain Fontana Maggiore stands. Next to it is the splendid Palazzo dei Priori, where you can admire the collection of paintings of the National Gallery of Umbria.
If you want to explore the historical centre of Perugia, there are long escalators in the south of the city, which go through the underground vaults of the Rocca Paolina and end directly at the popular promenade, Corso Vannucci. Many small boutiques but also well-known labels and traditional cafés chain up here and invite you to shop and stop for a bite to eat.
