Perugia's neighbourhood

There are so many reasons to visit Perugia, Umbria's capital and cultural hub

Any time on your wellness holiday at Relais Paradiso is great for planning a relaxing day trip to visit Perugia and its countless treasures.

The origins

The town was founded, and rapidly developed thanks to its strategic position on a hilltop, in Etruscan days. Quick expansion and defensive needs called for mighty walls (still standing today) as early as in the 4th century BC.

The leading University for Foreigners

Perugia is very famous also beyond the national boundaries. In fact, it is home to the longest-estabilished and most important Italian University for Foreigners, which endows the town with a multicultural atmosphere and lively day and nightlife.

Sightseeing in Perugia

Squares, monuments, museums and scenic views, Perugia deserves to be visited without rush:

  • Piazza IV Novembre square with the Fontana Maggiore fountain, surrounded by   Palazzo dei Priori palace and San Lorenzo Cathedral.
  • The Etruscan walls and gates (Etruscan Arch, Marzia, Trasimena and  Sole Gate), and the medieval walls and gates (Sant'Angelo, San Pietro, Santa Susanna)
  • Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo palace
  • Palazzo Gallenga Stuart palace (seat of the University for Foreigners)
  • Teatro Morlacchi theatre
  • Basilica of San Domenico, Umbria's largest church
  • Corso Vannucci, Perugia's most elegant street, which connects Piazza IV Novembre square to Piazza Italia square
