We love Perugia, even if it’s suburbs roads are not very friendly.
First prompting: have with a GPS, or Google Map with you. Several times you can see signs like:
“tutte le direzioni” that means all directions, so nothing!!!
And you can get easily lost!
On the way to Perugia, our first stop for a sneak or coffee is at Dolci e tradizioni bar in via della Libertà 1, Panicale, Tavernelle, at the crossing lights.
