Car Hire Perugia
Perugia often misses out on the mainstream Italian tourist market because of the fame and popularity of Rome, Florence and Milan but with a few spare days and a hire car in Perugia, you'll see just why avoiding the big three was a great idea.
Stay centrally if you can for many of the sights are located near the central square. Begin at the city's Cathedral of San Lorenzo which has a number of unusual features; notably that it seems to have been built the wrong way round.

Opposite the cathedral is the stunning town hall; not surprisingly better know as the Pallazo dei Priori. Inside it is truly more palace like than council chambers with exquisitely painted ceilings, dazzlingly decorated buttresses and acres of fine Italian marble. The Palazzo also houses the Museum of Umbria which has many fascinating exhibits.
The city's highlight though is found deep beneath its streets. 'Underground Perugia' as it's known, is the collection of medieval streets that were buried by the building of the 16th century fortress called Rocca Paolina. The fortress is long gone but excavations of the streets underneath its foundations has revealed a series of romantic, beautifully lit brick ceilinged passages.
A hire car in Perugia means you're not limited to the sights of the city either and a short drive away you'll be in the Umbrian Hills and on your way to Assisi, the home of St Francis. On the way back, stock up with some delicious Umbrian wine from one of the many vineyards.
Perugia Airport has become increasingly popular since the arrival of Ryanair and their flight from Stansted, menaing the delights of Umbria are open to all. Located just outside the city of Perugia, it's less than half an hour into your city centre accommodation along the S575 which skirts the south of the city. The airport is rapidly growing due to the popularity of the city's cultural attractions and added 15% more passengers last year but still only sees 200,000 pass through its doors.
