Perugia, a medieval jewel in the heart of Italy

Perugia, a medieval jewel in the heart of Italy | Italia Mia | Scoop.it

Perugia is a well-preserved medieval walled steep hill town with Universita’ per Stranieri, a wonderful place to learn Italian, and it is indeed a very famous Italian language school for foreigners.

Etruscan remains here shows the 3rd century BC Etruscan well, the Etruscan Arch that is one of the city gates, and what the history has spared of  the massive Etruscan wall surrounding once all the town. The Roman wall and Roman city gates are also part of the heritage Perugia boasts as well as the Tempio di Sant’Angelo, a 5h century Roman temple.

Perugia is almost at the exact centre of Italy. The capital of the Umbria region is also reffered to as the “Green Heart of Italy” and if you travel here, you will understand the reason immediately. The city is for sure the best locations to go and visit other lovely and ancient hill towns in Umbria such as Assisi, Spello, and Gubbio. The closest airports to get here are Rome, Pisa, and Florence, and recently Perugia has acquired an airport too.
