Our collection of Lake Trasimeno Villas will let clients base themselves right at the heart of the region of Umbria. Perugia is the capital of this beautiful region, and is also the hub of all that goes on. Perugia itself sits atop and climbs up a small hill. It offers winding cobblestone streets, old arches and palazzi, and a plethora of medieval art.
The latter especially can be found within places such as the Palazzo de Priori (the town hall). Of course, visitors can also enjoy the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria which offers art from the 13th-19th centuries.
Within historical Perugia, you will also find the beautiful Basilica di San Pietro, and the impressive Cattedrale di San Lorenzo.
Perugia is widely acknowledged as the cultural center of Umbria. It holds many festivals throughout the year. Some of the most noteworthy include Umbria Jazz, one of Europe’s best jazz festivals, and Eurochocolate, an annual chocolate festival held in October. The latter is all the more relevant to the town, given that the Baci Perugina chocolate originate here. Today, Perugia is a fun-loving university city. It attracts many foreign students, but has a vibrant nightlife with a mixture of foreigners and locals. Umbria as a whole has plenty to offer its visitors. For example, the important town of Assisi, birthplace of St. Francis. Moreover, its rolling landscape lends itself to all manner of activities.
