PERUGIA, UNFORGETTABLE DESTINATION FOR ART LOVERS
A day surrounded by the beauty of Umbria and the wonderful ceramics of Deruta.
We are taking you to PERUGIA, to discover the suggestive places of this world famous town: the MINIMETRO is going to take us to the historic centre.
Our tour will go through beautiful places: we are going to visit Piazza Italia and next the Rocca Paolina, the first fortress ever built in Europe. Now it's a fascinating underground itinerary, enriched with modern technology.
We are going to walk along the main street of Perugia, known for its elegant cafés and boutiques, and we are going to get to Palazzo dei Priori. This majestic palace has been the administrative headquarters of the town since the fourteenth century. We are going to visit the Sala delle Udienze (Audience Hall), with its breathtaking frescoes by Perugino. These works are so beautiful and complex that only Raphael's frescoes in the Vatican Rooms are considered superior.
Lunch at your leisure.
Our tour continues with a visit to the Fontana Maggiore, a masterpiece of Italian Gothic art, with amazing symbolic sculptures you will never forget.
Before we leave Perugia, we are going to see large portions of the ancient walls and the Etruscan Arch, also known as the Arch of Augustus, which constitutes one of the seven gates of the town.
Next we go to DERUTA, a charming village at a 20 minute distance from Perugia, known all over the world for its ancient tradition of ceramics. Here we are going to visit the majolica factory, observing the way a skilled craftsman works with the materials.
