We arrived in Perugia and headed to Piazza IV Novembre. The Fontana Maggiore was nice though it is quite average compared to the many Fontana that we have seen throughout Italia.

The Fontana is a major highlight in this piazza as well as the church it is near. A gathering spot for families, friends and visitors.
