Perugia is an amazing historical city, with an endless number of monuments, museums and works of art; but to complete your perfect day in the capital of Umbria region you have to try the delicious and fun side of the city, like the locals do.

A good way to start is a super-breakfast at Sandri, an old cafè located along the central corso Vannucci, the real museum of  pastry of Perugia. Another great choice is the traditional La Latteria, known for the best milk cream in town, a must go for maritozzo and cappuccino.

If your mouth needs more sweet flavours, the artisanal chocolate shop Augusta Perusia is your place. Just walk few meters from the extraordinary Etruscan Arch and you will find this little place where chocolate becomes a work of art.

Walking up and down the beautiful streets of  Perugia can make you hungry, but don't worry, you have plenty of good choices for a typical lunch. Osteria a Priori is a small restaurant/wine shop where you can try the best of local cuisine and some amazing wines from all around Italy. If your time is short or you just want to try Perugia's street food, head to Piazza Morlacchi, find La Bottega, and make your Panino choosing from an endless list of cold meats, cheeses, vegetables and delicious sauces.

Afternoon is the right time of the day for a “gelato” stop and in Perugia you wont be disappointed. Mastro Cianuri, Gambrinus and Grom are just some of the places you can choose for your cup or cone.

Looking for aperitivo? Pick a table on the beautiful terrace of Umbrò, overlooking the valley of Assisi, choose your drink and fill your plate.

After a long day spent enjoying museums, churches, viewpoints, squares and alleys, comes the time to sit down, relax and enjoy a good dinner. La Taverna is an elegant restaurant located in a litte street right next to the central Piazza della Repubblica. Here food is just spectacular, try to believe. Families and students appreciate a lot Al Mangiar Bene, one of the best choices if you want to try the local cuisine.

If you prefere some Napoli style Pizza, La Mediterranea in Piazza Piccinino is the right place... Here they don't make anything else, but they make it great!

Perugia, with ist thousands of students is famous for a vibrant nightlife. If you want to join the party you can start with a stroll along Corso Vannucci and Piazza 4 Novembre. Continue to Piazza Danti, in front of the cathedral and grab a cocktail or a draft beer at Dempsey's bar, it's all downhill from here!
