It is a large university area too with the University for Foreigners lending it a vibrant and forward-looking air. So much so that many visitors on flights to Perugia come just for the atmosphere and stunning countryside.

The vibe of Perugia
Set on a hill top with a medieval heart at the centre, Perugia is a place to enjoy a simple way of life mixed with great food and a relaxed ambience. Once you have landed from your flights Perugia is a bit of a climb but it is worth it.
The focal point is Piazza IV Novembre which has pedestrianised streets leading off it. On the square is the imposing Duomo, built during the 14th century but with an incomplete facade. The dark interior features an impressive altarpiece plus some sculptures by Duccio.
One of the best museums in the area is the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria, featuring famous local artists. The town really comes alive in July for the popular Umbria Jazz Festival, which has been going since 1973. Previous participants include Eric Clapton, Prince, Phil Collins, and BB King.
