Perugia Visitor information

Capital of Umbria and home to a prestigious university, Perugia’s centro storico tumbles down the slopes to unattractive modern suburbs. Negotiate these and use the escalators to reach the centre, where the broad Corso Vanucci, lined with classy shops, runs to Piazza IV Novembre, home to the Duomo and the exquisite 13th-century Fontana Maggiore, work of the Pisano family. Down the Corso too, you’ll find the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria, a treasure house of Umbrian art, characterised by its light and colour; Pinturrichio, Perugino and Raphael were all born in the region. There are more paintings by Umbria’s super star Perugino in the Collegio del Cambio, once the HQ of Perugia’s bankers. From here, narrow streets lead down the hill to churches and museums, notably  San Severo, Sant’Angelo, San Pietro and San Domenico, now housing the Museo Archeologico Nazionale dell’Umbria.

History of Perugia

Perugia was founded by the Etruscans, a central Italian tribe, much of whose civilisation was absorbed by the Romans as their power grew. The Etruscans held very firm beliefs in the afterlife and much of what is known about them comes from their burial sites. They often buried their dead surrounded by grave goods, often in chambers decorated with scenes from the deceased’s life – hunting, fishing, feasting and dancing. The Romans adopted some Etruscan gods as their own, though the Etruscans placed more emphasis on natural divinities such as the sun-god, Usil, and Cel, the earth goddess. The archeological museum has a good Etruscan collection, which includes amulets and jewellery, pottery, bronzes and a reconstructed tomb. Post-Roman times, Perugia was ecclesiastically important, no less than five conclaves of the church were held here and the religious orders of the Dominicans, Augustinians and the Franciscans all built churches.

The booking was simple and quick. We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the stay immensely! The view from the monastery was beautiful. The brothers were welcoming and very helpful. Staying is such a peaceful place gave us the rest we needed to continue our journey.

Good location as only a short walk from the centre (at least on the way there as it's down hill). Good size room, excellent bathroom facilities and very helpful staff.

Ho soggiornato per sei giorni ad agosto e sono stata molto bene. La posizione è fantastica, con una vista su Perugia davvero bella. Buona l'accoglienza. Peccato qualche ospite un po' chiassoso. Nel complesso buono!

Bookingproces not clear to me: I had received confirmation from speedybooker but at Monteripido they were not expecting me. Nevertheless there was a room available and I enjoyed my stay very much.
