Lifted by a hill above a valley patterned with fields, where the River Tiber runs swift and clear, Perugia is Umbria’s petite and immediately likeable capital. Its centro storico (historic centre) rises in a helter-skelter of cobbled alleys, arched stairways and piazzas framed by magnificent palazzi (mansions). History seeps through every shadowy corner of these streets and an aimless wander through them can feel like time travel. Amongst many important folkloristic events taking place in the city Umbria Jazz and Eurochocolate gastronomic festival are definitively worth a visit.

Città della Domenica is the first amusement park of Italy for children. Together with its spiritual sister, Assisi, Perugia is a candidate for European Capital of Culture 2019. It is also a bustling university town full of life that has always been the center of much attention. Perugia is known also for the fine chocolate that is produced there – any visit must be accompanied by some ‘Baci’ chocolate. The biggest annual event is a jazz festival which is held in July and attracts many renowned international performers. In October, chocolate lovers get to indulge their taste buds at the annual festival. The city contains many museums, the main one being the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria which is inside the magnificent Palazzo dei Priori. A walk down the main Corso Vannucci from the Rocca to the Fontana, will lead you to the museum. From here, take a stroll down the Via dei Priori for a step back in time.
