Perugia Travel Toolbox
Perugia isn't a "cute" hill town, but the architecture is compelling, the visible history goes back to the Etruscan period. You'll find remnants of antiquity in many of the little corners of Perugia. The wide streets like the corso Vannucci are like huge piazze, devoid of most traffic and brimming with caffes and gelaterie. There is a covered market offering fine food right in the center of town.
You can study Italian here, at the University for Foreigners, highly recommended and marked on the map.
