I happen to stay in a little hotel near this church that would be easy to overlook as it is a little off the beaten path. At the rear, there was a beautiful medieval garden with beautiful views of Perugia. They were about to close...More

The Cathedral of San Pietro is a beacon on the skyline of Umbria. You can see the bell tower from miles away. It is outside the city

Unfortunately, I've seen this one only from outside but I heard from locals that it's enough beautiful inside

By "coherent" is meant decor that is coordinated and not the rococo mish-mash that so many churches exhibit. The garden is more than a kitchen garden, but a retreat from the hubbub of the city. Well worth the walk from city center.

What a beautiful cathedral, full of mosaics, with the whole church covered in art. Went there for Sunday Mass, officiated by the resident Bishop who was joined by a small by very enjoyable choir. The Church is simply Spectacular, surrounded by gardens and lecture halls....More

Every part of the interior is highly decorated, and many of the features deserve close study. There is amazing carving in the choir stalls, with dividing arm rests carrying mythical beasts. There are significant paintings everywhere, it just needs time to take it all in.

Well worth visiting, amazing artworks and magnificent architecture- a stroll in the garden is also highly recommended! The sacristy is beautiful.

This church is a gem. If you're lucky enough to be there for the Xmas or Easter concerts, with an overflowing audience, and beautiful night lighting, you will never forget it.

We were not prepared for the beauty of this church. It is truly lovely. In addition, the medicinal garden is a great place for a relaxing look at the lowlands beyond. See this church is you see any in Perugia.

A lovely very old church in the university area of Perugia. Inspiring by its elegant courtyard and entry.
