Best Photography Locations in Perugia

Perugia is a common (municipality) in the Umbria region in the Italian region. A city full of history was founded in a long way past the Etruscans. An international tourist destination is also considered a cultural center thanks to its university, which attracts hundreds of young people every year. Its historic center has an asymmetrical shape. Perugia was founded on hills, very close to the Tiber river. It presents the typical characteristics of a common scattered but harmonious in its medieval appearance. Its name is most probably of Etruscan origin, made by the Romans as Perusia. The name appears for the first time in a written form on a stele of the 7th before Christ.

Among the monuments to visit in the Umbrian city, Fontana Maggiore is perhaps the first. Composed of two concentric polygonal tanks and surmounted by a bronze cup. It is one of the most important examples of medieval architecture in Italy, and was realized at the end of the twentieth century. Accessing the city you will see the Etruscan Arch, the largest of the doors that allow access to the old town. It is part of the Etruscan wall still well preserved today, garnished by impressive side ramparts made of huge travertine blocks. The left contraffort is topped by a beautiful Renaissance Loggia. The last architectural renovation is dated 2015 by Brunello Cucinelli, known in the world of cashmere as one of the most successful entrepreneurs. Another work of art worth seeing is the Rocca Paolina.

Made by Pope Paul III around 1500, it seems that his purpose was to punish the Peruvians for having rebelled in creating salt tax. For this reason, the Rocca has always represented, at least until the end of the nineteenth century, the symbol of papal power over the city. The imposing fortress stretched from a square to Italy to the Largo Alpe Hunters. An interesting monument of Etruscan origins is the Etruscan well. It used to be in the past for water supply in the city. Funerary monuments are also present in Perugia: in the Horseshoe neighborhood you can observe the Etruscan tomb of San Manno dating from the 3rd century BC. A curiosity about the city is represented by the fact that here you eat bread without salt. But there is an explanation for this: the people stopped using salt as a form of protest against the salt fee. Perugia is known and famous for its chocolates, the Kisses Perugini. Not everyone knows they originally had a completely different name. Originally rumors were called, but the name did not succeed and was readily changed.
