What you'll do

We will leave the car in the parking in Piazza Partigiani and we will reach the center through the Rocca Paolina, an amazing curiosity: Pope Paul III Farnese to enslave the Perugini won during the " salt war", lost by the Perugians against the Pope who had the monopoly of salt, commissioned Antonio da Sangallo, the younger, to build a fortress (1540 AD) over 200 houses in the most prestigious district of Perugia, the district that looks towards the valley, towards us. The courtyard of the fortress would have coincided with that of the Baglioni house, at the head of the revolt. The streets became the corridors of the fortress !! Who could have imagined such an incredible and cruel revenge? We will continue towards the Porta Marzia, saved by the Pope as an Etruscan gate dating back to the III century BC.
The Perugians are still so embarrassed by this distant story that even today the guides are silent on the subject and the little muse inside with the video has been resized with a plastic model that explains nothing.

Meet your host, Maria Luisa

Host on Airbnb since 2017
  • Identity verified
I know many areas of our beautiful country and have a personal point of view due to my cultural background. The experience I propose is not reported by tourist guides, often the site is only named and not explained. My clients are surprised that so much beauty and particularity is not known and / or reported by the guides.

Where you'll be

Through the underpass, we will cover the whole modern part. This was a 20m high bastion leading to a tower. When we are surrounded by old bricks and a huge sculpture by Burri, there we will be inside a building. Look around: it is impressive. Go up the few steps that lead you to via Baglioni. We look at the facades of the houses, we enter the courtyards. .
