  • This beautiful medieval fountain, sculpted by the famous 13th-century artist Nicola Pisano, dominates the square with his greatness. Even after 800 years feast perugini and tourists with its soft gurgle ...

  • 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
