Walking in the center of Perugia takes you back several centuries, its medieval streets and suburbs are evocative, the beauty of the Rocca Paolina, the majesty of San Lorenzo Cathedral and of the majour Fountain and appreciate the Gesù church’ style, where are conserved high value works of art.
Yet Perugia is an important center of attraction not only for tourists but also for students from all over the world: the University for foreigners is in fact the most prestigious in Italy and it represents the best way to learn Italian and its traditions.
Perugia is also a perfect base to visit the center part of Italy, cities like Rome or Florence are only two hours far and jewels of architecture like Assisi, Spello or Gubbio are even more near.
In order to live like a real local you can’t miss the extraordinary gastronomic treasures of Umbria: the olive oil, whose cultivation is dated back to the 1st century, the fine red wines of Torgiano and Montefalco, the cheeses, the black truffle of Valnerina but also the pork and the boar meats, from which one obtains sausages, salami, ham and the famous porchetta. Try these products while sitting in your Umbria charming vacation rental, near the swimming pool, maybe in front of a wonderful sunset.
For a souvenir from your cottage rental in the heart of the city? Every house in Perugia treasures a piece of Deruta ceramics, crafted by hand, this colourful pottery is exported in the whole wide world. An ancient art which expresses in dishes, teapots, serving trays and bowls but also lamps, garden tables and everything the fantasy of the ceramists suggests. Wonderful ceramics are produced in Umbria in lovely towns and villages like Orvieto, Gubbio and Gualdo Tadino.
Particularly thriving is also textile industry, artistic cloths and fabrics or laces of superior beauty are produced in Perugia, Gubbio and in the Trasimeno lake area. They are embroidered by hand, a tradition which goes back to medieval ages but also modern cloths like cashmere and high fashion articles are reputed, we have indeed some of the most important companies of Italy.
Perugia is also known as the city of chocolate, in October the biggest European feast, “Eurochocolate”, celebrates all the products made of cocoa, among which the most famous is the “Bacio Perugina”; but chocolate is the set piece of our city year-round and in the historical center you can taste the famous Perugia’s chocolate articles by some of the eldest “cioccolaterie” of the city, remained unchanged still nowadays.
