Program Overview

Program Description:

Off the beaten path but beloved by those who know it well, Perugia is a great choice for students looking for a truly local experience in Italy. Perugia rises and falls with its rolling terrain, providing stunning views of the hills of Italy’s “green heart” and the city’s mix of Etruscan, medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture. On the ground, you’ll find an impressive variety of restaurants, cafes, piano bars, museums, art galleries, cinemas and everything that caters to Perugia’s abundant (local) college student body. Want to experience an authentic Italian town, make local friends, and improve your Italian? Perugia is calling!

Setting Description:
Perugia is about halfway between Florence and Rome in the region of Umbria. Umbria is known as the "green heart of Italy" for its lush natural treasures and central location. Remarkably, the historic center of Perugia still has an Old World feel, with its Etruscan walls, medieval churches, winding cobblestone streets, and Renaissance and Baroque architecture. And there’s plenty of local color for that beguiling "Italian feel."
