Take a quick trip into this little church and gaze at a painting from one of the most well-known artists in history. Won't take too much time out of your day, only a short walk from the main piazza, and it's definitely worth your time.

Part of the fun of this place, is you feel like you're discovering something others have not. It's in the "back" of old town Perugia. One of the greatest artists to ever live, Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, painted the top section of a fresco in...More

San Severo was off the beaten path but worth the walk with frescoes by Raphael and Perugino. It is also near a wall with a beautiful view.
