Travel and Culture in Umbria
Perugia is the regional capital of Umbria, it is situated on a hill, at 493 mt above the sea level and has got about 180.000 inhabitants.
The province of Perugia includes the northern part of the region and the area of Lake Trasimeno; its territory is mostly planted with cereals, pulses and olive trees.
In the province there are plenty of woods and pastures for the cattle, so walking in the verdant countryside just off Perugia is very pleasant.
The town’s fabric intertwines with nature, underlining the strong sense of belonging existing between man and territory, between history and landscape.
If you are travelling by plane, the airports which are useful to reach the town are: the Umbrian regional Airport Sant’ Egidio in Perugia and the International Airport Leonardo da Vinci in Rome, 180 km away from Perugia.
By train the railway line is Roma-Firenze, with connection at Terontola station.
If you are travelling by car and you are coming from the North, you can take the Sole motorway A1, leave it in Valdichiana and then drive on along the motorway Bettolle-Perugia or, always from the North, take the clearway E45 to Cesena-Orte
