The Soul of the Place
When visiting a town like Perugia, one with such a great artistic heritage, you can of course pick traditional itineraries, easily found in every touristic guide, or you can choose an alternative path, narrated by the words of famous native authors. You could also follow the stories of poets and travellers who stayed in certain buildings, gazing at the view on the Umbrian landscape, or those who, for example, slept in certain hotels.
Thanks to the creation of two literary journeys (which also include some historic and artistic information), you will be able to appreciate hidden places, little-known paths, and buildings that most visitors would never think of searching when vising Perugia. These unique itineraries will guide you to the discovery of a new point of view on this old town, while admiring some of its most famous places. The added value of these paths lies in the comments and thoughts expressed centuries ago by famous authors, who they will guide you through the most intimate history of these places.
The number of people who are willing to find out the soul of Perugia has increased over the years, and not only in Italy. Tourists now want to walk through the layers of history and capture the past of different buildings; some other enjoy a slow-paced tourism and want to discover hidden aspects of the city.
The University for Foreigners of Perugia created a free APP that will provide this new type of travellers with an innovative tool to explore the town of Perugia and fall in love with it. We hope you will enjoy it.
