should not be missed by anyone visiting central Italy, especially
is quite large by Umbrian standards (about 170,000 inhabitants) and is
the home of two well-established Universities. However it is the concentration
of Renaissance art and architecture as well as the pleasing ambience
that attracts visitors here and provide endless things to see and do.
Among the main sights of Perugia are the Fontana Maggiore, which is mediaeval
and the Palazzo dei Priori (the town hall, encompassing the Collegio del Cambio, Collegio della Mercanzia, and Galleria Nazionale),
which is one of Italy's greatest Renaissance buildings. The Collegio del Cambio has frescoes by Pietro Perugino, while the Collegio della Mercanzia has a fine later
14 C wooden interior. The Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria, the National Gallery of Umbrian art
from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance houses outstanding paintings by
Duccio, Piero della
Angelico and Perugino.
