The city is known as a center of medieval art and is also home to a great historic center as well as a very numerous student population, not to mention a great producer of chocolate; Perugia is a city that has something for everyone.
The city is served by the small Perugia Airport which deals with connecting flights from Milan and low cost airlines. It is connected to the city via bus routes and taxis but your best option would be to employ our Perugia car rental services and have a car of your choice ready for you at the airport at an hour you specify.
Once in the city you will see exactly how much Perugia does have to offer, starting with its underground. The Rocca Paolina was a 16th century fortress which was built on top of a network of medieval streets which it used as a sort of foundation, this means that you get to travel through this weird catacomb-like environment in order to reach daylight when you take the escalators from the lower town.
Close to the Paolina remains you can find the Porta Marzia which used to be a city gate built in the Etruscan style in the 3rd century BC which was later incorporated into the actual city walls, interesting way of preserving history indeed.
The city has a very large and beautiful medieval fountain built in the 13th century. The twenty-five sides of the basin are adorned with sculptures of prophets and saints, the signs of the zodiac and the work of seasons.
The Palazzo dei Priori or Town Hall is a large and imposing Gothic style building, built at the start of the 14th century. The emblem of Perugia, the griffin can be seen on the side facing the piazza alongside a 14th century bronze lion as well as some chains.
These is only a small sample of the things that you can see and do while in Perugia so make sure to consider our Perugia car hire services in order to enjoy your trip to its fullest potential.
