Perugia is the capital of Umbria and one of the local hill towns, a city full of charm and history. With your private tour guide you will walk along the city walls, dating back to the Etruscan age, get lost in the symbols carved by Nicola and Giovanni Pisano's on the Fontana Maggiore and be fascinated by the Rocca Paolina.
Every ancient gate, alley, piazza, palace and church will capture your imagination and every museum and gallery will impress you with a sense of history, culture and art. Perugia is not just a stuffy old showcase of the ancient, it also has a young, vibrant and energetic feel. Perugia is the site of many festivals and concerts: the annual fall Chocolate festival and the summer Umbria Jazz festival lend the city to a chic and urbane atmosphere, unmatched by other Italian cities.
From Piazza Italia, you will go first exploring the different strata of Rocca Paolina – the so-called “Perugia underground”. Once back to the city center, there will be a stop at a famous old fashioned but very traditional coffee shop, for an espresso or a cappuccino topped with whipped cream. The tour will focus on the main fountain – Fontana Maggiore – together with the other buildings standing in the square.
