Up on a hill in the Umbrian countryside, you find Perugia, a city where a varied community of welcoming locals, enthusiastic travellers and international students meet in the cobbled alleys, winding streets, ancient buildings and stunning piazzas. This is a vibrant town with an amazing legacy from the past.
If you want to get a glimpse of the everyday life of this laid-back city, the best is to enjoy an authentic dining experience with a local family. Taste the real Perugia starting with bruschetta with local olive oil, continue with umbricelli shaped pasta and finish with a bar of the town’s famous gourmet chocolate.
You can't visit Italy without trying at least one pasta dish... So we'll serve you two!
You will be welcomed into a Cesarina host's home to enjoy “Bis di primi”, two pasta recipes followed by one of Italy's most popular dessert, the tiramisu.
Feel like part of the family as you enjoy lovingly prepared regional recipes, accompanied by carefully selected local wines.
