The historical town of Perugia in Umbria is roughly a 40 minute drive from Antica Quercia Verde, it is also reachable by public transport from Camucia Cortona. The hilltop town of Perugia was probably inhabited from prehistoric times and today Perugia is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city known for its cultural events, such as Umbria Jazz and The University for Foreigners. It was once a major centre for the Umbrian population and later also for the Etruscans, Perugia town centre and particularly its very interesting underground escalators that illustrate different layers of its history from Roman to Medieval times are particularly beautiful. A day trip to Perugia is certainly worthwhile during your stay at our agriturismo. On the way you’ll pass near Lake Trasimeno with a visit to Assisi or Spello as part of this itinerary.
