PERUGIA TRAVEL GUIDE
Perugia is an Umbrian city of 169.224 inhabitants. The first settlements date back to the Etruscan period, but in 295 b.C. it is conquered by the Romans, like most of the territories of Umbria. In 41 b.C., during the Perugian wars, the city was destroyed by a fire and was rebuilt by the Emperor Augustus, who enlarged it according to the Roman style, while retaining the central core of Etruscan origin. From the second half of the eighth century, Perugia became part of the possessions of the Church. In 1139 we speak for the first time of a Municipality and the Government of the Consuls, who control the city together with a general assembly and a minor council. In the XIII century the city knew a particularly prosperous period from an architectural point of view: the ancient Etruscan walls are restored and many noble buildings are built, with towers, so many that the city was nicknamed Turrena, since it had reached more than 70 towers; of these today only the Torre degli Sciri remains. For a long period, several noble families alternated driving Perugia, from the Visconti to the Baglioni, until around 1540, when the city was conquered by the Church.
