The living room of Il Ghiottone Umbro’s guesthouse, complete with fireplace and elegant “Scanditalian” design, is worth devoting many of your waking hours to. Though not too many – as this hotel is also a cooking school, operated by two chefs from Copenhagen. They take their love of Italian cuisine to the next level and now offer private cooking lessons for guests. You’ll feel right at home in the seasonal kitchen as you learn to prepare traditional and contemporary dishes from the freshest ingredients in Perugia.

Locanda della Posta Boutique Hotel


Locanda della Posta will lure you into the “living room” of Perugia. As the sole hotel overlooking the main street of Corso Vannucci, the location is only rivalled by the deluxe suite with a Jacuzzi Frame – both equally deserving of your time and wandering mind. Immerse yourself in the cascade of chromotherapy and hydromassage cycles, before allowing your eyes to be treated to the same rhythmic experience as you stand on your private balcony and watch the town of Perugia pulsing into the night.
