Standing in front of the Hotel Bufani, you will see, across the street, a sign for the Rocca Paolina. Go down the escalator and wander through the beautiful caverns, stop and watch the (10 minute) arte-video that takes you through the history of Perugia in...More

In a busy thoroughfare, between escalators, you will find what is effectively an archaeological site, with little alleyways, rooms and medieval tiled floors. There are shops, art displays and a first rate AV presentation on the city's history. And all without graffiti, litter or drop-outs!...More

Don’t miss a chance to walk the old streets beneath the Corso Vanucci. The history of Perugia which goes back to the Etruscans.
