Tour of Perugia’s Rarely Seen Underground

Underground Tour of Perugia

Text translated from original flyer (attached):

Below the soil of Perugia, there exists a city even more ancient than the one that can be admired from the surface: a hidden world where speleology and archaeology become intertwined with history and where one can discover the many cultural treasures that are so often ignored.

The Speleological Group of Perugia will show you the secret crannies lying underneath the city, doing guided tours of the various sites, some of which will be opened just for this occasion. The visits will be led by art historians, speleologists, and archaeologists, who will illustrate the happenings and the secrets of this medieval city.
