I recently requested a walking tour of Perugia through Le Baccanti, and it was excellent. The guide for our tour spoke excellent English (and Spanish and Italian), and was very helpful and happy to share their knowledge with my family. We found the walking tour to be quite relaxed so you feel more like a local and less like a tourist.

Perugia is an Umbrian city filled with beautiful art, fascinating historic sites, and delicious local delicacies like black and white truffles, artisan chocolate, salt-cured meats, and wild game. Steep alleyways lead to the city's oldest walls within the original Etruscan center.
Your Best of Perugia Walking Tour begins at your designated meeting point with your local, fun, and informative English-speaking guide in Perugia's city center, which is reachable either on foot or by a modern escalator installed recently to facilitate the uphill climb.
Your private half-day walking tour will continue in the monumental Piazza IV Novembre, an important focal point of the city beginning in ancient Etruscan and Roman times. Your private guide is an expert in art history, and can fill you in on the details of this central piazza which local townspeople still use as a busy meeting point. The square also hosts the beautiful medieval Fontana Maggiore, the marvelous medieval fountain created in the 12th century by Nicola and Giovanni Pisano, and designed by Fra Bevignate. The fountain faces the wonderful Palazzo dei Priori, once the residence of the city's chief political authorities, and your next stop on the private half-day Perugia walking tour.
You will also have time to explore the Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria, the Collegio del Cambio with its fine Perugino frescoes, or the Sala del Collegio della Mercanzia with its historic wooden panels.
