Thanks to its green areas and its geographical location Perugia offers a variety of opportunities to practice sports, long walks, running and hiking.
The above-mentioned “Pian di Massiano” is suitable for walking and running: thanks to the flat paths and the green lawns which surround it, it is particularly apt to take care of one’s physical shape and health.
In the same area a nice lake hosts various animal species, geese, ducks, roosters, hens and various kinds of birds. The little lake is also close to a large playground for children.
Just three kilometers from Villa Nuba is the park of Ponte Felcino, a green area whose paths cross the woods and run along the Tiber river.
This park offers the opportunity to practice healthy walks and rides in a peaceful and untouched environment.
The most charming park in Perugia is surely that on the hill “Trinità”: a wooded area, with the typical Mediterranean scrub, on the summit of Mount Malbe.
From this park, about 10 Km from Perugia, one can admire a wonderful view on the whole city.
The Trinità park is ideal for tasty picnics, to harvest asparagus, mushrooms and black truffles. Inside the park one can also spot wild boars, hares, hedgehogs, squirrels and many other animal species.
