A major centre of mediaeval art, Perugia is the capital of Umbria and is one of the country’s most beautiful hill towns. There are numerous ecclesiastical and secular buildings dating from the Middle Ages and vast Etruscan city walls which give some idea of the splendour of that age and Perugia’s historical significance go as far back as the 6th century BC. Many of the town’s finest buildings surround Piazza IV Novembre, the grand square at the heart of the town, including the Prior’s Palace, the Great Fountain and the cathedral. A number of picturesque streets, featuring mediaeval houses and vaulted passageways lead off the square.
