More Information on our Perugia Guided Tour
The capital of Umbria, Perugia, was founded by the Etruscans in the VII century b.C. Where most of the region’s hilltop towns are rather small and intimate, Perugia is instead quite big and ringed with busy roads. The historical centre though is one of the largest and interesting in Italy. From the ancient Etruscan remains to the Middle-Ages, from Renaissance to Baroque, every period produced absolute masterpieces. One of Italy’s finest Gothic palaces, the Palazzo dei Priori, is home, among other treasures, to the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria (gallerianazionaleumbria.it). This is a superb gallery of Umbrian and other art, covering several hundred years. Also worth a visit: the frescoed Collegio del Cambio; San Severo, which has work by Raphael (a pupil of the Umbrian Renaissance master Perugino); and San Pietro, one of the region’s most sumptuously decorated churches.
