is one of the principal "art cities" of
indeed of Italy, and presents a rich feast of architecture,
frescoes, paintings and historical artifacts. The location and
climate of Perugia, as well as its reasonable size, add to the
pleasure of a visit. The Piazza IV Novembre of Perugia is the focus of the
town and site of the Duomo, the Cathedral of S. Lorenzo, and the splendid
The Palazzo dei Priori (the Town Hall, encompassing the Collegio del Cambio, Collegio della Mercanzia, and Galleria Nazionale)
forms another side of the piazza. Other major sights in and near
Perugia are the Church of San Pietro and the
Tempio di San Michele Arcangelo, a round church built on the foundations of a Roman temple.
Worth an extended visit. More
