Venture into Italy’s humble region

Fly to Perugia with British Airways and discover the medieval centre (Centro Storico) perched on scenic hilltops, elevated above the modern city and fertile rolling hills. 

Here you’ll find a profusion of Roman monuments, cobblestoned alleyways, ancient arches and traditional Italian piazzas which are adorned with gothic mansions and basilicas.

Student populations create a dynamic vibe, often hanging out at the profusion of lively restaurants, cafes and bars. Jazz-enthusiasts flock to Perugia in July to celebrate Umbria Jazz festival – one of the most acclaimed in Europe – whilst there’s also the annual chocolate festival for eager chocoholics.

Perugia flight FAQs

The flight time to Perugia from London is around 2 hours and 25 minutes. You can fly directly from London Heathrow (LHR) to Umbria International Airport (PEG) three times weekly, giving you plenty of choice and flexibility. With seasonal flights operating from June to mid-September, you’ll be able to experience Perugia at it’s best.

Make the most of Perugia’s traditional Mediterranean climate. In terms of weather, the months of May to early October are preferable, although this is understandably a busier time of year - especially when festivals are on. From May through to September, there’s the lowest rainfall on average and pleasant warm temperatures whilst July and August are the hottest months.

However, due to its higher altitude, Perugia can be subject to chillier evenings, even during the summer. In the springtime, witness the ‘green heart of Italy’ flourish and bloom or see the patchwork hills begin to change colour in early autumn. If you do travel to Perugia during the winter, be sure to pack some layers.

In Piazza IV November you’ll find several famous monuments, including Fontana Maggiore and the main Cathedral, San Lorenzo. Look out for the Renaissance frescos by Perugino and Raphael in Cappella di San Severo before heading to Pasticceria Sandri, a beautifully unique café which dates to 1860. At Rocca Paolina, discover Perugia’s fascinating underground city, following the original network of intact medieval streets. Above ground, take in spectacular sunset views from Giardini Carducci.

Perugia is full of delightful restaurants and family-run trattorias. Most use local produce such as olive oils, truffles, mushrooms, meats and goats’ cheese from the mountains. Look out for homemade strangozzi, a square-shaped spaghetti native to the region. Umbria also produces world-class wines so head to vineyards such as Tili Vini for exquisite wine tasting. If you have a sweet tooth, there are numerous gelaterias around town, or you can try Baci at Perugia’s famous chocolate factory.

Citizens of the UK and Ireland and EU passport holders do not need a visa to visit Italy, but they will need to hold a valid UK passport with at least six months validity. If you hold a passport from a country or territory outside of these areas, you may need to apply for a visa before you travel. You can find out more about visa requirements for all the countries we fly to at the IATA Travel Centre.
