Many places in Umbria look just like fairy tail you have imagined reading or listening to the stories when you were little. Views there and ambience remind Andersen’s poetic fairy tails.
Magnificent landscapes and mellow sunsets over the old town terracotta rooftops make a surrealistic impression and take you back to the past centuries.
You can start to explore Perugia from Roca Medievale, where soaring swallows will escort your walk, visit Lake Trasimeno and its pretty quay. Do some souvenir shopping and make sure to have some gelato (my flavour choice here is ‘Melone’) and drink a chill and fresh ‘Shakerato’ coffee (espresso&ice shake).
We have visited our local friend from Perugia and here is where he took us!
The best place to stay in Perugia
Waking up watching a breathtaking panoramic view from your balcony at the antique hotel – is an awesome idea, choose Brufani Palace Hotel at the top of the hill.
The hotel is located in the heart of the old town, where you can see the historical centre and find great restaurants, cool bars, and contemporary fashion shops.
Brufani Palace is an old hotel with a reach of historical heritage. The building is retouched and refined for the best luxury experience. You will see lots of antique furniture, chandeliers, statues and other items.
You can even watch the architecture sites under the clear glass bottom of the swimming pool in the spa room! Isn’t it cool? A very particular, more than 5 stars experience. It is something you will remember for the rest of your life.

Our local friend showed a local secret to us. He is a high-class Italian chef and his choice is a highly trusted one.
He took us to this hidden gem – an organic restaurant on top of the hill with a spectacular view – Agriturismo Il Melograno. Address: Strada Colle Palazzone 4, Pianello, Umbria. In this restaurant, all the ingredients and the products are home-grown on their local farm. They also have here rooms to stay. It is very cozy, a little remote, but a super nice place with a kind and pleasant service. Highly recommended. Bookings essential. See the Website.
