Founded by the Etruscans, Perugia today is the major cultural and manufacturing pole of Umbria. Although the ancient Etruscan road structure remains the same the city was remodeled by romans in ancient times.

Along its steep medieval streets, panoramic landscapes, monuments and museums, the city is able to offer many attractions to the visitor. Despite the appearance of a small fortified medieval village, Perugia has indeed a very busy city life and a thriving business culture.

During the visit certainly don’t miss a stop in Piazza IV Novembre, a symbol of medieval Perugia, with its Fontana Maggiore, the charming Etruscan well and the unusual Cathedral of San Lorenzo. Enjoy some regional specialties while exploring and discovering this great city.
