  • The symbol of Perugia, a unique and spectacular fountain at the same time. A medieval building that has no equal.

  • 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
