Stay away from Perugia. It's a hidden gem kept from guidebooks.
I lived in Perugia for a summer and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling Italy. It is a beautiful old Etruscan town, with lots to do and see all within walking distance. The University for Foreigners is down a large hill from the city center, but worth walking down to and exploring.
Perugia is a wonderful place to visit. The people are very friendly and there is a lot to do both in town and in the surrounding areas. I can not wait until I visit again.
