Perugia is an attractive hilltown and capital of the Umbria region of Italy. Served by direct flights from the UK and on the train line from Rome to Florence, the city has enough sites to fill a few days and is also an ideal starting point for exploring the beautiful surrounding area. The equally attractive old towns of Assisi and Orvieto are close by and well worth seeing.
