Though it features Etruscan defensive walls and a medieval town center, Perugia is perhaps best known for its fine chocolate and annual chocolate festival.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at San Pietro and Collegio del Cambio. Get out of town with these interesting Perugia side-trips: Assisi (Cattedrale di San Rufino, Santa Maria sopra Minerva, &more), Gubbio (Basilica of Saint Ubaldo, Palazzo dei Consoli and Museo Civico, &more) and Spello (Chiesa di Santa Maria Maggiore & La Bottega Di Teresa). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Museo-Laboratorio di Tessitura a Mano Giuditta Brozzetti, don't miss a visit to Piazza IV Novembre, pick up some new kitchen skills with Umbriacooks4u, and indulge in some personalized pampering at RB beauty.
