The history of Perugia goes back to the Etruscan period. Perugia was one of the main Etruscan cities. The city is also known as the universities town, with the University of Perugia, the University for Foreigners, and some smaller colleges such as the Academy of Fine Arts “Pietro Vannucci”, the Perugia University Institute of Linguistic Mediation for translators and interpreters, and the Music Conservatory of Perugia.

There are annual festivals and events like:
Less than half an hour east of Perugia and visible for miles around, Assisi is Umbria’s most famous town and one of its loveliest. This beautiful medieval town, with its geranium-hung streets, lovely views, and fountain-splashed piazzas, is heir to the legacy of St. Francis, patron saint of Italy and the town’s favorite son.
The 12th-century monk founded the Franciscan order and sparked a religious revolution. The town is an important pilgrimage site (the third most visited pilgrimage site in Italy) and hosts many religious conferences and festivals.
The Basilica di San Francesco is perhaps the most visited sight in Umbria, housing the saint’s relics and Giotto‘s renowned fresco series of St. Francis’s life. Local ruins provide a view into Assisi’s Etruscan and Roman roots, while grand palaces and majestic Roche (castles) from a later era tower above tile roofs.
Sadly, the town suffered serious damage during the earthquake of September 1997, but restoration was relatively swift and many splendid sites can be seen today.
Nestled on the slopes of Monteluco, you will find the medieval fortress city of Spoleto. The city’s urban planning began before the time of Augustus and was completed by 1 BC. Ancient ruins and three miles of aqueducts penetrate the center and the shell of a Roman amphitheater lies nearby. Thick walls and a magnificent gorge surround Spoleto and fine medieval and Roman monuments sit along the streets.
After its prominence in classical times, Spoleto became the seat of one of the most powerful states in Italy at the very beginning of the Middle Ages. It remained splendid through the golden years of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, acquiring its share of lovely monuments and quaint streets.
Although Spoleto is one of Umbria’s picture-perfect stops, it was almost unknown until Giancarlo Menotti selected Spoleto as the site for a summer arts festival in 1958 and his Festival Dei Due Mondi (Festival of Two Worlds) hasn’t left since. The Festival Dei Due Mondi (Festival of the Two Worlds) is an annual summer music and opera festival held each June to early July in Spoleto, Italy, since its founding by composer Gian Carlo Menotti in 1958.
It features a vast array of concerts, opera, dance, drama, visual arts, and roundtable discussions on science. The new artistic director of the festival today is Giorgio Ferrara.
The restaurant of the hotel is composed of two rooms, one light room with panoramic windows and one rustic room. In summer, you can have dinner in the terrace. The restaurant serves included Umbrian style food which is based on simple and traditional ingredients. You can try typical dishes with some famous local red or white wine. The dinner in the restaurant is a set three-course meal.
You will be served typical Umbrian cuisine with genuine products. Products used are exclusively local products found in Umbria. From the adjacent working farm comes extra virgin olive oil DOP, the best quality.
You will be having classes on Mediterranean, Italian, and Umbrian cooking.
