Bologna to Perugia

One of twelve legendary ancient Etruscan cities, a journey through Perugia’s historic center feels like a journey back in time.

From BolognaAuthentically Italian

Bologna is the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region and dates back to almost a thousand years B.C. A center of university life, Bologna is also home to the oldest university in Europe. The city has a rich culinary history with many creamy pasta sauces and hearty meat dishes. When visiting Bologna, you’ll notice plenty of arcaded streets. The town center is one of the best preserved in Europe. Piazza Maggiore, the heart of the city, is lively and entertaining with many outdoor dining and drinking establishments. It’s surrounded by the Basilica of San Petronio, the city hall building, and the Neptune fountain (among other buildings). Don’t forget to check out the Asinelli Tower, the city’s largest tower. This slightly leaning tower is actually larger than the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa and can be reached to the top in 498 steps. After enjoying some Italian cuisine, stroll along city’s arcaded streets and explore all that Bologna has to offer.

To Perugia Legendarily Romantic

Founded by the Etruscans around the 6th century BC, the city was legendary amongst Roman authors by the time it was assimilated into the Republic. Sitting 1,640 ft above sea level, the old town is partly surrounded two sets of walls. The medieval wall is still largely intact, and has several entrances, such as the Cassero di Porta Sant'Angelo. The inner, Etruscan wall, was built using massive boulders. A few remains of the Roman era still survive, including an amphitheatre outside Porta Marzia, and what is likely a mausoleum under St. Peter’s bell tower. The Piazza IV Novembre, with its magnificent Maggiore Fountain, is the best way to experience the essence of the city. Facing the square is the 13th century Palazzo dei Priori, which houses the National Gallery of Umbria, while the facade of the Cathedral of San Lorenzo boasts the pulpit where Saint Bernardino used to preach.
