Perugia, Italy

Perugia Italy
The art town of Perugia, Italy is the principal city of the Region of Umbria, Italy, home of two respected universities and a major centre of Italian art and architecture. The Collegio del Cambio houses wonderful frescoes by Perugino, while the Collegio della Mercanzia has a fine later 14 C wooden interior. The Cathedral of S. Lorenzo stands on the Piazza IV Novembre which is also the location of the splendid Fontana Maggiore. Another side of the main piazza of Perugia is formed by Palazzo dei Priori (the Town Hall, encompassing the Collegio del Cambio, Collegio della Mercanzia, and Galleria Nazionale).  Other major sights of Perugia, Italy, are the Church of San Pietro and the Tempio di San Michele Arcangelo, a round church built on the foundations of a Roman temple.
Anyone visiting this part of Umbria or southern Tuscany is strongly recommended to set aside at least one day to visit Perugia and to explore its art and architecture, most notably the Perugino frescoes. The ambience of the town is also very pleasant and the large number of students means there is a more youthful atmosphere in the evenings that is commonly the case in the hill towns of Umbria.
