Hi everyone, I know that Perugia can get really cold and perhaps many places would be closed in the last 1/3 of the month of January, but the place seems really nice to visit. May I know what are the things I can do during this time? E.g. visit night markets or festivals?
Hi all, we will be arriving in Perugia airport (PEG) at 9 am and want to travel on to Spoleto. What do you advise? Train? If yes which station in Perugia do I use? Thanks!
Hi, what is the best way to get to Perugia from Rome? I've tried to look and found one train at 5am! Is there another way of getting to the city?
Could you suggest some easy day trips by public transportation from Perugia?
Currently in Perugia for 3 months. Could someone tell me how to get to Naples. Is the bus option ok, and how do I go about this? (train seems a hassle with up to 4 changes).
Would anyone know how to access a cultural/event agenda for Naples?
Where do I catch the mini metro
When we leave Rome heading back to florence, we plan on stopping in Perugia ...any good tips and is it worth the stop....I heard a lot about it.....help out..thanks
i have the intention to go to Perugia this week but I wanted to know if it is the right period , as I
know in Italia many things are closed in August . I was already a few years ago in Bologna in August and most of the shops were closed . Somebody who lives there can tell me how it is in Perugia ?
thanks a lot !
My wife and I will be in Perugia in mid Jan 2013. My wife has mobility issues and at times will need to be in a wheel chair. After cheap/reasonable ground floor or room with a lift that is within walking distance of train/bus station as we will be coming from either Rome or Florence. Also need information about what to see/do and wear the locals eat and shop.
I will be living in Perugia for the next 5 months. Can anyone recommend an affordable gym which I could join preferably as close to the city centre as possible?
I am also looking for a good yoga studio if anyone has any suggestions?
Hi) Me and my school friend plan to spend 5 days in Perugia 25- 29th of May on a way to Bergamo Euromeet. As a part of Euromeet we plan to visit Pallio della balestra in Gubbio on 27th, in addition- Assisi, Spello and, may be, Orvieto. So I have some questions:
1. Could anybody recommend me nice place to dine: something with live music, informal and vivid atmosphere: we aren't interested in night life, just pleasant place to spend evening without risky adventures:-)
2. As I've read here, on VT, that Monday is the day of "closed doors" in Italy, is it worth to visit Assisi on Monday, or some of sights will be closed and we should better go somethere else? (we won't hire a car and will travel by public transport).
3. On the page of Perugia here there is a "Con" tip that Perugia is unsafe place with a lot of criminality. We stay a bit far from the centre: in Etruscan Chocotel, is it safe to walk at evenings (for example going to the hotel from the dinner at restaurant in old town) for 2 mid-aged ladies? Or there are special unsafe places, which aren't recommended to visit?
Thank you in advance, regards, Elena
Dear VT'ers, I last visited Perugia in 1980, when I visited the Massinis, I would like to return this year, as I'm staying in Florence (Firenze).
This time I travel with a friend and I would like to show her the sights, I remember the aqueduct, St Pietro's Church, the main square, and I would like some advice about other sights to show, we like architecture, history, and a couple of hours walking tour would be a bonus.
Can anyone suggest a good itinery, and maybe some good places to enjoy coffee, lunch.
Grazie (many thanks)
We (family of 3 with a 18 month old) are planing a 2 night stop in Perugia and have started looking at hotels. We are arriving by car.
We've narrowed it down to these three, and were wondering if anyone had any feedback on any of them. Any experience or information would be appreciated.

Just bought an IPod Touch and thought I might be able to use it in Italy while traveling. Anyone had experience with using Wi Fi Hot Spots (free) in Perugia?

I have read a few articles that you need to change trains at Foligno on the way to either Assisi or Perugia. However, having checked the schedules on treinitalia.com, it seems there are direct trains from Rome to these 2 cities without transferring. Is that true?
If I were to take the train departing Rome termini at 11.57am, I don't need to transfer elsewhere?
Can someone let me know what fare 39/AS means? I don't really understand. Is this the fare to go with if I were to buy a ticket online?
Hi! I'm from Brazil. Next month, I'll be arriving in Florence, from where I'll catch a train to Perugia. I'll be studying italian for a couple of months there.
My question is which is the best place to buy clothes: Perugia, Florence, or some other neighbor place?
My wife and I are planning a trip to Perugia for two weeks either in October or November. I have commitments in October that I could cancel but that would be inconvenient. But, am concerned that if I go in November it would be too cold for walking about the city comfortably and I'd miss the fall colors in the countryside. Would appreciate hearing about what the climate and atmosphere in town is like from people who've been there during October and November.
I study (nursing) in Perugia, am half english and half italian (so speak english and italian). I grew up close to Perugia in the country near a town called Gubbio. I'm pleased to show students around town when they arrive here(for free) because I enjoy meeting new people!
So any of you out there can write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll introduce you to Perugia!
I might get January 2008 off work and visit Perugia. The purpose would of course be to learn Italian language but also to have some fun.
So, here are my questions:
1) how is January in Perugia - is there any life? any students? anything going on or is it a bit sleepy?
2) should i come with my car? is there a problem finding parking?
3) how much would one month rent of a studio apartment in Perugia be?
Has anyone had experience with this hotel? Can't find info on tripadviser, which I find rather odd. Thanks, Eva
Ciao a Tutti!!
I am planning on beginning an Italian language course which will begin November 2, 2007 at the Università Per Stranieri di Perugia and was wondering if there was anyone out there planning on attending around the same time :-) Thanks for reading this! Hope to speak to some of you soon!!

We have rented a house in S.Enea which is about 15km from Perugia. On our way there we want to call into a supermarket and stock up on provisions for the first few days. Are supermarkets open on a Saturday afternoon? Knowing Italy and its erratic opening hours I'm worried we might get stuck without food for a couple of days!! All help appreciated. Thanks.
