    Fossil forest we found without many difficulties. I don't know if by the hour or for the day but it was closed. We went through one of the holes in the fence. Beautiful show and I think that is unique in the world (trunks of trees of 2 million of years stored very well) but also sad for the abandonment of the site. If you can come and see her worth.

    Stumbled upon while case at this place, after reading on the way to fabriano an anonymous sign with "fossil forest". Unfortunately it is very little known, little noticed and overgrown due to lack of funds to maintain it at best. It is in a grassy clearing where you see initially about 30 huts, but as soon as you get closer, you realize the Majesty of the site. 2 million year old trees, the same family of Redwoods, which are drawn up in all their beauty. Is the only place in the world to enjoy these trees so ancient that remained so well over time, and we can't do it justice. Thankfully the girl who made as a guide explained to us in detail the entire history of these trees. His passion is admirable, and it is because of people like you that this place goes on. Recommend it to everyone!

    A unique wonder in the world, but missed and in a State of sad neglect. A story survived for millions of years but that is slowly dying for the scandalous indifference of Italian cultural heritage. Visit it if you can.

Where to stay in Perugia

For a view over the city's rooftops, book your stay at a hotel in one of the old town's heritage-rich hotels. Within walking distance from Perugia's main tourist sites, centrally located hotels offer complimentary parking, free Wi-Fi, and quick access to fine shops and restaurants. If all you need is a quiet room and a warm meal, explore the private inns and hostels on the edge of the city. Many Umbrian farmhouses, surrounded by olive groves and ancient vineyards, also offer good-value rooms just a short drive from the city.
