Our beautiful city, built by the ancient etruscans, is a gem and a must see, at least once.

One of Umbria's cutest towns, and famous for chocolate, Perugia is also the closest city to the island. You can fly in from England, or take the train from Rome. Then, the best way to get to Isola Polvese is by car.


While Perugia has gotten a lot of negative attention lately (Meredith Kirchner's murder, the Amanda Knox trial, an increase in drugs and crime), it still remains one of the quintessential Italian hill towns. Er, hill cities. While it's in the middle of the gorgeous Umbrian countryside, it's a city of 250,000 with a sizable soccer (calcio) team, a world-class art museum, lugubrious medieval architecture, and one of the largest university populations in Italy. There's a university for foreigners, so the foreign population is huge. Oddly, restaurants in Perugia aren't fantastic, but you're here to see the art and architecture, and just wander the cobblestone streets. The Corso Vannucci strip in the center of town becames one giant open-air party as soon as the sun even considers peeking out. Thousands of folks sip drinks, stroll around and enjoy gelati all along the Corso once spring starts. There's nothing like it.
