  • Not only a decorative element, but this beautiful city emblem fountain realized at the end of 1200 on a drawing of the brothers. Consisting of two concentric, adorned with marble sculptures with the nice group of the theological virtues. Beautiful hills of the lower tank depicting allegories of the months of the year, while the statues of the tank top by Giovanni Pisano tell the Foundation of the city of Perugia and its role in the territory.

  • CAPOLAVORO !!!!!
  • I stayed at this property a week and it was a comfort to have a comfortable home, tastefully decorated, in the Center, complete with everything you need in a home, with a beautiful panorama. The owner, Eva, and her mother, also, are two lovely people. I highly recommend it to those who need to stay in Perugia for both business or leisure! Simona
