Perugia

Our other recent trip was work related, a big international conference in Perugia, Italy. We were kept pretty busy and didn't get to do much exploring but we were pretty impressed with the city. It's an old (very old!) walled city on a hill with the added bonus of a three dimensional layout which makes map-reading somewhat tricky!! The buildings are beautiful and eating out is a pleasure.
Towards the end of our visit the large, international jazz festival was just getting into it's stride. We got to taste a little of the fabulous music on our last night in town.
There's one particularly nice bar we frequented on the walls of the city near the Rocca Paulina which has the most amazing view (and does very nice Margheritas!). Here's a panoramic shot from there...
