Perugia is located in the green heart of Italy, on an acropolis set amid the magnificent landscape of Umbria. The historic center is small and compact: the hamlets, alleys, and small houses tell endless stories.
Perugia’s history dates back to the ancient Etruscans, who settled here many centuries before Christ. The Romans established an important colony there called Perusia, while in the Middle Ages the city became a free commune, remaining prosperous and powerful until the sixteenth century, when it came under the control of the papacy. The endless stories of Perugia and its inhabitants, its streets, its views and its buildings have left traces among the streets of the historic center, and in the works of art you will find numerous in the city’s museums. Just think of the great masters Pietro Vannucci (known as Perugino) and Bernardino Betti (known as Pinturicchio) who both worked in Perugia, and the young Raphael who was a pupil in Perugino’s studio until 1504.
