Perugia

Perugia is a place of some style - at least in its old centre - and a city proud of its attractions, its universities, its sights and its Serie A football team. A drink on the Corso Vannucci , its great central street, reveals a buzz you won't find elsewhere in the region, a sense of dynamism embodied by the cosmopolitan Università Italiana per Stranieri - created by Mussolini to improve the image of Italy abroad and now, privately run, the country's largest language school. This same dynamism remains evident in the city's above-average number of films, concerts and miscellaneous cultural events, and is highlighted further at Umbria Jazz (held in July), Italy's foremost jazz festival, whose stars have included Miles Davies, Stan Getz, Wynton Marsalis and Gil Evans.

In terms of sights, Perugia's interest - for al that it's an Etruscan town - is essentially medieval. In addition to the Palazzo dei Priori, home to the Galleria Nazionale and the Perugino-painted Collegio del Cambio, there is the duomo and a full quota of churches - the glittering interior of San Pietro the most celebrated, the rotunda of Sant'Angelo the most ancient. Idiosyncratic one-offs give plenty of reason for wandering the city's streets, the best being Agostino di Duccio's facade for the Oratorio di San Bernardino and the Gothic sculpture of San Domenico, Umbria's largest church.


Corso Vannucci

Corso Vannucci

Medieval Perugia hinges around the Corso Vannucci, one of Italy's great people-watching streets, its broad expanse packed from dawn to the early hours with a parade of Umbria's style-makers and followers. Named after the city's most celebrated artist, Pietro Vannucci, better known simply as the Perugino, the street has several of the city's key sights, not to mention the most atmospheric cafe in the city - the Pasticceria Sandri at no. 32 - and one of the better central places for coffee and lunchtime snacks - the cafe del Cambio at no. 29.
The Corso strikes off from Piazza Italia, a largely nineteenth-century ensemble, concluding in the medieval Piazza IV Novembre, former site of a Roman reservoir. On opposite sided of it are the city;s two traditional power centres: the Palazzo dei Priori, still the home of the council, and the duomo. At the centre is perhaps the most graceful fountain in Italy , the Fontana Maggiore, stunningly restored to as near a pristine state as its 700-year-old sculptures allow.

Getting to Perugia by car:

From the north (Milan, Florence), the best exit for Perugia on the A1 motorway at Valdichiana, where the superstrada SS75bis branches into Umbria at Lake Trasimene and continues towards Perugia. From Rome travelling northwards along the A1 motorway the best exit for reaching Perugia is at Orte, which is connected to the regional capital at first by the ss204 to Terni and then by the E45 (or SS3bis) from Terni to Perugia.
The A14 motorway down the Adriatic coast of Italy has an exit at Cesena for the E45 "superstrada" to Città di Castello and Perugia.

The SS75bis has five exits for Perugia (from North): Perugia-Ferro di Cavallo, Perugia-Madonna Alta (best to reach the "Renato Curi" football stadium) , Perugia-San Faustino (best to reach the main railway FS station, also good for the old town center), Perugia-Prepo (good to reach the old town center) and Perugia-Piscille (good to reach the old town center).

Getting to Perugia by train:

From the North, the main line between Florence and Rome has a station at Terontola (on the branch line to Lake Trasimene, Perugia, Assisi, Spello, and Foligno), so coming from Florence take one of the dozen daily trains to Terontola/Cortona (1'/2 hr.) that meet up with a connecting train to Perugia (35 to 50 min.).
From the South, the main line between Rome and Ancona has a station at Foligno (on the branch line to Spello, Assisi, Perugia and Lake Trasimene), so coming from Rome, take one of the nine daily trains on the line to Ancona, stop at Foligno (1 hr., 40 min. to 2 hr.), where you can transfer to a Perugia-bound train (30 to 35 min.).
