The remains of this fortress are an incredible place to wander around, especially cool on a very hot summer day.

Don't miss this gem. Fabulous to tour. Art work in the fortress is breathtaking. Initally, I was just relieved to get away from the summer heat into this "airconditioned" underground haven but after I cooled off, it was fun to explore the different rooms.

Great to go under the city and see the old ruins. It's also a good short cut on the escalators to the bus station!

Parts of Perugia were "over-built, or built-over" in the 19th century to make a fortress, but the old streets and houses are accessible and used as exhibit/event space. A walk through the warren of paths is atmospheric, well-lit and just plain fun.

We really enjoyed walking through the Rocca Paolina. there are several exhibits which provide details to the venue as well as other art related exhibits. It is a wonderful experience and it is amazing once you understand the old city of Perugia.

Rocco Paolina is an archeological excavation of a portion of Perugia showing some of the earliest underground ruins of the city under the city. Well restored and fascinating to explore.

Free to view. Very cool spot. Information placards in Italian and english. Great information about the city's history, including the Salt Wars and the Blood Wedding

I cannot but imagine how it must have been walking through those little streets in normal medieval daytime...
