  • This octagonal temple is not on the tourist track, slightly away from the centre. We were alone there - very meditative experience.

  • This is a fascinating building where one can see how it has been modified and changed over time. Quiet location with few visitors so lovely and quiet inside. Well worth the walk to the church.

  • Church of St Michael Archangel is an ancient 5th century church. Its architectural style is Paleochristian and Romanesque. The circular shape of the building was common in early Christianity and derives from Roman temples. The dedication to the warrior angel is no coincidence, as it is often used in churches close to city walls, in order to protect the city.
  • When you turn the corner and approach the first church in Perugia, you ate transported back to the early Middle Ages. Nothing has changed. Not the park. Not the view. The kind of unique experience few if any other sites can offer. It’s a long walk from the city center but worth every step.
