perugia in 50 pictures is only a small part of beautiful perugia.
we drove from arezzo to perugia in the morning. we parked outside the city walls and climbed up to get in. you can see above how the city looks like from outside.
and we’re in!
we were lucky to find a great vantage point. there are several around since the town in on a hill top.
these is part of the medieval underground city called rocca paolina. it is used for passing through, in combination with modern escalators and elevators. do not miss it!
we went outside at the bottom of the hill.
we were looking for lunch. we found it in a tiny brazilian place. the nice lady spoke brazilian and served us some sort of pastries and brazilian cola before the main dish: fish from the neughboring lago trasimeno. it was good!
we went back to the city center and continued to explore.
this is the palazzo dei priori.
this is fontana maggiore.
i loved the narrow streets and their arches. they always make me wonder about how the town looked in the past and who were its inhabitants back then.
we found another vantage point. i liked this one even better than the first one. we couldn’t walk around as much as we wanted because we started hearing thundering in the distance. until we made it to the car, it had started raining already.
this is the funicular that makes the connection between the top and the bottom of the hill. very useful!
i loved perugia and its beautiful historical sites! so much that i’m certain i will be back one day, to discover more of it.
but until then, stay tuned for the rest of my italian trip: we’re getting closer to the end of it!
