Perugia

Things to do - general

 

This small town is the center of Umbria region in the heart of Italian country. Perugia is home to several universities, and is renowned for its student population that crowds the narrow streets of the medieval town all year long. The astonishing Etruscan Walls are just one of the many historical spots to be visited during one of our tours to Perugia. The city has warred and contended against the Vatican throughout the centuries. Today, remnants of this battle can be found in the bread… Why the bread? Because the Peruginis refused to pay the Church tax for salt, and they stopped using the salt in their bread. And for this reason, today people from this city still eat bread without salt in remembrance of the independence they pursued through such harsh economical battles. The city was built by Etruscans far way in the past approximately in the X th century BC and still today Perugia’s infrastructure (the main streets that was developed by Etruscans) are the same of the past centuries. Perugia is a pivotal and significant location to visit many other towns of this beautiful region. When is the best time to see Perugia? The Springtime! The enormous woods and forests all along the city are filled with blossoms of vibrant and animated flowers. One amazing “natural” show is in the Colfiorito Valley, where thousands of flowers blossom at the same time, offering to the visitors the impression of a rainbow in the valley. Colfiorito Valley is close to the town of Assisi, where Saint Francis used to pray.
