Discover Perugia | Events

Perugia, besides its vast artistic heritage, hosts events of international renown, especially Eurochocolate (every autumn) and Umbria Jazz (mid-July). From the city’s clubs, to the theatres, streets and piazzas, the entire historic center beats and resounds during the lively days of Umbria Jazz, creating a magical and electric atmosphere that merges with the places and history of Perugia. For ten days the city center becomes a musical village, with concerts and performances one after another, every hour of the day until late into the night.
