One hour away from our agriturismo, you can enjoy and visit the amazing city of Perugia, home of important artists like Perugino and Pinturicchio and place of artistic training for important Renaissance characters such as Raffaello, Piero della Francesca, Pietro Aretino and Luca Signorelli.
Perugia was founded by the Etruscans and its historical centre still has a harmonious medieval appearance. Many monuments and places of interests are worth a visit, among which IV Novembre square with its Fontana Maggiore, the Etruscan Arch, the Cathedral of Saint Lawrence, the national Gallery of Umbria and much more.
For the chocolate lovers, Perugia is also known as the “City of chocolate” and, in October, it hosts the popular event “Eurochocolate”, the European festival of chocolate.
