These are attractions which propose a new model of sustainable tourism and invite the tourists to prolong their stay in our town.In Perugia countryside – one the largest in Italy – there are many vestiges of the history and the culture of people who lived there. They are vestiges of great value and dignity, just like the more famous ones in the town acropolis.

They are vestiges of a countryside which was more peopled and important than the present-day one. It was studded with ancient fortified villages, castles, stately abbeys, noble villas – which were the sites of international culture simposia – archeological sites and natural wonders.

«Wandering through these complicated, steep, humpy streets, through these precipitous galleries, with their loose bricks, crossed by curbs to slow down the feet, amidst these strange buildings … » — H.A. Taine, Voyage en Italie, I, Paris, 1866 With its Etruscan walls, a gorgeous Medieval center, Perugia is not only a city for the gluttonous (re: chocolate), but for artists and art lovers alike.  
Thanks to the great variety of its territory – rich in art, nature and good food - tourists who want to explore the city of Perugia can choose from amongst a wide range of activities. Urban trekking is a great opportunity to explore hidden corners and little known historical places. An example of this is the “Umbria underground” route, where many towns, including Perugia and Todi, can be visited through underground passages and tunnels, enriching our historical and archaeological knowledge in a fascinating way.
