PERUGIA

Tourist information on Perugia

General information on Perugia

With a medieval aspect and only apparently small, Perugia presents the characteristics of a scattered municipality, with its remote villages across its vast municipal territory (the 11th largest in Italy) and its multitude of greenery and fields. Founded by the Etruscans, it is a city of art, rich in history and monuments, but also the cultural, productive, and business district of the region and a tourist destination. Perugia has a very intense city life, especially linked to the presence of one of the oldest University of the Peninsula - founded in 1308, as well as the largest university for foreigners in Italy.
Several must-sees are: Fontana Maggiore, one of the most famous fountains in Italy and a symbol of medieval Perugia - the Cathedral of San Lorenzo, the Rocca Paolina, an ancient fortress, built upon request of Pope Paul III, and the Etruscan Well, a great hydraulic work that testifies the technical knowledge of the population of Perugia, already 300 years before Christ.
