"World's Sexiest Small City" (by National Geographic Traveler)
Perugia, the Capital city of Umbria, is its largest city.
Its history dates back to its ancient Etruscan foundations. This vibrant and beautiful town is home to the University of Perugia, one of Europe's oldest universities and to Umbria Jazz Festival, the most important festival in Italy.
In October, the Eurochocolate Festival makes Perugia the 'go-to' place for anybody who loves chocolate.
We will focus on the stunning Fontana Maggiore, one of the most charming Medieval fountains in Europe and you will learn why it has become the iconic symbol of the town.
We will unlock the hidden secrets of the mysterious, underground Perugia, an incredible Medieval city beneath the city, a spooky, well-preserved labyrinth of arches, alleys and houses.
I will particularly enjoy sharing with you why this amazing town was picked by David Lansing, writer for National Geographic Traveler magazine, when he was issued the challenge to find the "World's Sexiest Small City ".
So, what exactly makes this city sexy?. . .
