Here we are in Perugia, the capital of the Umbria region, an Etruscan, Roman and Lombard city. The historic center of Perugia is small but a real treasure holder, and if the climbs are your kind of thing, this place will give you many emotions. In Perugia myTour leads you to discover the delicacies of Umbrian cuisine and takes you to know the beauties of this territory.
Perugia is a city that lies vertically, and you can enter through the ancient access doors to the pedestrianized historic center. The ancient medieval city is still well preserved, and can be explored on foot, revealing a new monument, a new attraction at every corner. Among ancient buildings that have now become home to museums, artisan and food shops, Perugia has a young population, with many university students and a slow but lively pace.
