Swedish LET member Viva Schlasberg went sightseeing to discover Perugia in Umbria, the green heart of Italy, ahead of the Ladies Italian Open presented by Ruco Line.
Umbria is the perfect destination to spend your holidays, with nature and parks, cities rich in art and culture, outdoor sports and internationally famous events, food and wine.
Perugia, sitting atop an irregular hillside, is the region’s largest city of art. Most of its treasures are enclosed in the historical centre, surrounded by two rings of Etruscan and medieval walls. Piazza IV Novembre is the fulcrum: in its centre lies the beautiful Fontana Maggiore, symbol of Perugia, and around it stand the Gothic cathedral and the magnificent Palazzo del Priori, which houses the Collegio del Cambio, with frescoes by Perugino and the National Gallery of Umbria full of masterpieces.
