I suggest not only exploring on foot but also get to know a bit of the history. There are apparently different versions of it as this was part of a fortress, which means there were conflicts ... There is one room where there is a...More

I had a hard time finding this place while walking around town. I then saw a review on TripAdvisor that mentioned the entrance was across from the Hotel Brufani, so I was able to visit this amazing place. It is the remains of a fortress...More

The medieval street of Via Baglioni survived the destruction of a large part of the City in the1540s to build the Rocca and the Rocca's subsequent demolition in the 1800s. Now underground, it is a fascinating and atmospheric remnant of Perugia which has been cleverly...More

Standing in front of the Hotel Bufani, you will see, across the street, a sign for the Rocca Paolina. Go down the escalator and wander through the beautiful caverns, stop and watch the (10 minute) arte-video that takes you through the history of Perugia in...More

In a busy thoroughfare, between escalators, you will find what is effectively an archaeological site, with little alleyways, rooms and medieval tiled floors. There are shops, art displays and a first rate AV presentation on the city's history. And all without graffiti, litter or drop-outs!...More

The series of escalators throughout Perugia are a lifesaver and a must to learn. But difficult to understand since there are no explanations or signage. Still, once you master them you can get out of the tourist-choked area and visit the local neighborhoods. FYI, a...More

This was a hidden surprise in Perugia. The mix between today's escalators and the ruins from a long time ago. Diffidently worth the time .

Rocca Paolina is a very impressive underground city, beautiful structure. Is very interesting walking through medieval history in the low light.

Don't miss this opportunity to step back in time. An amazing undertaking to build something so functional and durable in the days before modern engineering and big earthmovers. There was an excellent film that runs continuously, it's a bit abstract and far to loud, but...More

We visited Rocca Paolina discovering different structures through the ages (from Etruscan to Middle Age). It's amazing to walk through an almost dark medieval city. It's an interesting place to visit.
