Perugia, Italy

By In Travel Galleries

A superb trip to the International Wine Tourism Conference in Perugia resulted in plenty of photos. I might just have mentioned it before but I really didn’t take enough! While there it seems as though you are viewing each day constantly through the camera lens. Return home though and you wonder why there are so few… especially of those showing the town in the snow. Though the sub-zero temperature, the blizzard, soaking wet feet and the desire to find a restaurant might have something to do with a lack of ‘winter’ shots.

Excluding those taken in the two restaurants visited in the town, (they are destined to accompany an article I really should get down to write), here is a set of twenty images of the historical town of Perugia, Italy. It’s a more approachable city than, the admittedly larger, Naples. With the historical centre perched upon and restricted by, its hill top location, this part of the town is a delight to stroll around.

    Thanks Honor, for stopping by, AND taking the time to leave a comment. Glad you like the photos.

  3. […] There are full visitor facilities at Arnaldo Caprai; the vineyard lies just outside of the town of Montefalco to the South East of Perugia. […]

    Hi Andrew,
    I found myself chatting to an architecture student, trying to describe the 3 speed cobbled road surface of St Agata, and went searching for images ….hence I stumbled on your images…Great Photos…really evokes the magic light + textures of Perugia which unexpectedly caught me in its thrall 40 years ago and held me captive for 12 months…just so I could watch the town and its landscape move through a cycle of all seasons. Cheers
