About the tour

The perfectly preserved medieval Castle-Village of Corciano was closely linked to Perugia. We will enter Corciano through the ancient gates, walk on the townwalls and in the picturesque streets. But on this tour we will also be able to enter the main church boasting an original painting by Perugino and the beautifully decorated Council Hall. The tour ends in the Casa Contadina where an incredible collection of ancient tools, furniture, bits and pieces gives an idea of daily life in a Farmhouse.


Meet Patrizia-Umbria

Patrizia-Umbria

Patrizia’s our archaeologist-turned-tour guide, who’s had so much fun guiding visitors around the green heart of Italy. Perugia's always ready to throw a surprise. Although the city's not very famous, it doesn't shy away from entertaining its visitors with its stories and breathtaking views. "Perugia during the Umbria Jazz festival is magical! Every day at noon, a New Orleans band marches up and down the main street to get people to dance and follow them to the different free concert venues. Lovely music, and magical atmosphere through the night!" she says. On her tours, you might catch a smatter of different languages - she's a polyglot who speaks 5 languages. "A funny incident was that on a very busy day, I was halfway through my tour in Perugia before it hit me that I was doing it in the wrong language and nobody had dared to interrupt me!" she laughs. “I always try to convey some typical Italian word or proverb ready to be used immediately. Normally by the end of the tour, everyone remembers it and who knows...continues to use it at home!” Her goal as a professional guide is still to surprise the visitors. She almost stumbled into the exciting space of guiding visitors around her city. When she was working as an archaeologist on excavation sites and museums, she enjoyed showing Perugia's beautiful landscape. "And then I got the chance to accompany groups throughout Europe, and decided being a guide was the profession where I could combine my different interests: history, languages and meeting people from all over the world," she quips. As Marcel Proust said: you don't always have to travel to new destinations but you have to look at them with new eyes.
