Say Perugia and you think of chocolate and jazz, but it is so much more: it is the place where you can retrace history and art, from the Etruscans to the Baroque, in a small space. Balanced between imposing monuments, Perugia is the expression of a dominant and modern city. The minimetro and escalators transport you to top of the hill, which offers splendid views and fiery sunsets. The city revolves around the Fontana Maggiore a synthesis of the Middle Ages and its activities.
But it is in the underground that Perugia reveals itself: the Rocca Paolina of the mid-sixteenth century, erected as the result of the pope's outrage against the rebellious city, guards a medieval quarter of great suggestion. The same atmosphere can also be found in the antique stained glass and Perugian textile workshops. To end on a sweet note: at the Perugina Museum you can discover how the famous “Bacio” was born or the first collection of figurines, the ingenious inventions of a young woman in the middle of the last century.
