Perugia is the capital of Umbria and one of the local hill towns. It is a city full of charme and history. With me as a private guide you will walk along its city wall dating from the Etruscan age, get lost in the symbols carved by Nicola and Giovanni Pisano's into the Fontana Maggiore and find yourself fascinated by the many layers of the Rocca Paolina.
Perugia is a city full of charme and history. Every ancient gate, alley, piazza, palazzo and church will capture your imagination; and every museum and gallery will impress you with a sense of history, culture and art. Perugia is not just a stuffy old showcase of the ancient, it also has a young, vibrant and energetic feel. Perugia is the site of many festivals and concerts, the most important of which are the annual fall Chocolate festival and the summer Umbria Jazz festival, lending the city to a chic and urbane atmosphere unmatched by other Italian cities.

Alessandra is a natural-born educator who imparts her knowledge in an easy and charming manner as you weave through Perugia's historic streets, buildings and archeologically fascinating underground. Wish we had had the time for a "part 2" since we would have very much enjoyed spending more time with Alessandra and her perspectives on Perugia.
