Perugia Apartments & Villas (Umbria)
"Umbria Verde" lies at the heart of Italy, and Perugia is at the green heart of Umbria: an ancient, yet also extremely lively, modern town. Perugia stands on a high hill, and dominates the surrounding countryside. We have a wide range of lovely Umbria accommodation in Perugia Villas and apartments in Perugia to choose from for your ideal vacation.
The many archaeological discoveries in this area of Umbria testify to its human habitation since prehistoric times. The Etruscans conquered Perugia in the 6th century BC, and made it into one of their twelve most important towns. Today, a well-preserved mixture of Etruscan gateways, medieval churches, renaissance buildings, crooked alleyways and spacious squares survives to fascinate the visitor.
Goethe wrote of his stay in Perugia on the 25th October 1786: ?The situation of the town is beautiful, and the view of the lake most pleasing. The scene has impressed me greatly.? Perugia and Umbria really do impress greatly, both by their natural beauty and their artistic treasures. Lago Trasimeno, where Hannibal inflicted a devastating defeat on the Romans in 217 BC, is so near the town that it is also known as 'Lake Perugia.' The Perugians swim in it through the long summer, while in the winter, one can ski on the 2500m high Monte Vettore.
We recommend that you rent a Perugia Villa or Pergusia Apartment for that relaxing and hsitoric holiday in Umbria,Italy.
