Perugia, located in the green heart of Umbria, is a city rich with a unique atmosphere. For three hundred years, from the 11th to 14th century, the city was a free "comune" and this period transformed it on a geographical, commercial, artistic and cultural level.
The city centre offers the best examples from this thriving period including the splendid "Palazzo dei Priori" (which houses the National Gallery of Umbria), the Cathedral of San Lorenzo and the gothic "Fontana Maggiore" (Great Fountain), which is considered the city's symbol. A walk down the main street will take you past many interesting shops, markets, restaurants and antique doors that open onto picturesque courtyards and terraces.
Perugia is the artistic and cultural centre of Umbria offering such famous events as the "Umbria Jazz" festival in July and the "Eurochocolate" fair in October. For children, Perugia is home to the "Città della Domenica" (Sunday City), Italy's first-ever amusement park, which is also now an animal park filled with many interesting species to be discovered.
