An unforgettable journey through Medieval and Renaissance precious artworks...
Perugia is a city of deep culture.
Pietro Vannucci, nicknamed the Perugino, had his workshop here and was considered by his contemporaries to be one of the greatest painters of Renaissance. The irreligious and avaricious artist gave the 11-year-old Raphael his first break into the art world.
We can hardly imagine the impression that Perugino's magnificent and very expensive paintings in the Nobile Collegio del Cambio must have made on the locals in 1500!
We will discover his incredible frescoes which decorate Perugia's Medieval bank, the "most beautiful bank in the world" and you will sense the breath-taking beauty of his invaluable work.
The Palazzo dei Priori, today's Town Hall, houses the National Gallery of Umbria.
Our tour will focus on Medieval and Renaissance masterpieces and will be a chance to immerse yourself in those times and to get to know all the fascinating details about famous painters, such as Duccio, Fra Angelico , Benozzo Gozzoli, Piero della Francesca, Perugino, Raphael and Pinturicchio.
