Perugia is one of the most beautiful Etruscan cities in Italy. Its warm-colored stones, its majestic palaces and the ever-increasing shadows fascinate poets and painters of every century. The historic center lies on a hill and other hills, visible in many parts of the city streets, surround it. The ancient heart of Perugia has a variety of forms, volumes and colors: bricks, travertines, marbles, columns, arches, gates, walls that trace its long history and that of the peoples and civilizations that inhabited it: Etruscans, Romans, the Pontifical State.
The pink stone town on the slopes of Mount Subasio is the home of Umbrian spirituality.
