Travel Blogs from Perugia
We drove through the Umbrian countryside to visit Assisi this morning. We visited the tomb of Saint Francis and the Basilica. After lunch we drove to Spoleto and walked across the high wall into the old town. Tonight was a free night back in Perugia and the guys opted to stay together and had a nice dinner in the hotel.
Today we traveled by bus to Arezzo. The small hill-top town featured in the Academy Award winning movie "Life is Beautiful." Our local guide Marco showed us the cathedral, town square and frescos in Capella Bacci. We enjoyed a tasty lunch in a cafe then departed for Perugia in Umbria. After checking in to the hotel Jon took the guys on a brief …
Happy Thanksgiving from Perugia! Before heading out today Don gave the guys Italian scarves - their farewell gift early so they could wear them on the rest of the trip. We toured the old city with our local guide Giuseppe this morning. We walked under the old Etruscan gates and through the massive walls dating back to the third century B.C. Toured …
Perugia followed Assisi on our weekend of exploring Tuscan towns surrounding Firenze. Needless to say, we were feeling a bit soggy, tired, and sniffley, and when we checked into our lovely 4 star hotel the bed called to me. However, I told myself, Katay, that's what I call myself in Europe, Katay, you're in Perugia!! Get your lazy butt out of bed …
... The Basilica contains her remains. At the end of town is The Basilica of St. Francis. St. Francis was buried on this site in 1226. The church was started in 1228 and is considered the first gothic church in Italy. Inside is beautiful, with 28 frescoes lining the walls that show scenes from the life of Francis which he used to teach the Christian message, a mix of documented history and folk legend. The courtyard overlooks a 15th century cloister that houses ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sangallo Palace Hotel Perugia
Great Hotel but No Service
This hotel was about 5~7 min. walk from Piazza Novembre which is the center of the town up on the top of the mountain. The single room was small but clean with modern bathroom with shower stool.
The drain in the shower was not working well though...
The breakfast was good with many kinds of bread, assorted meats, cheese, cereals, boiled eggs....etc.
The only complaint that I had was that the hotel doesn't provide any iron/iron board and no laundry service on holidays. Therefore, if you are a business traveler who arrives on holiday, good luck!!
very good hotel, good location.
Poor breakfast, but maybe it is due to off season.
My family loved this hotel. The staff was very helpful, the rooms were clean and modern, with great showers-YES! It was very close to the downtown main street and had a good breakfast. We would definitely stay here again!
Nice and great for families
Our family of four (2 young boys) stayed at Hotel Sangallo Palace for a week in late March to early April. The hotel is very nice with sizable rooms. We booked a family suite special with two adjoining rooms and were very pleased. The rooms are fully equipped with all amenities (a microwave oven would have made the room complete for our family). The one negative, due to allergy and asthma concerns, is that there is a strong smoke odor when entering the hallways since the hotel does not designate nonsmoking floors. The locatioin is perfect for walking throughout the beautiful walled city of Perugia and also a great location for taking trips to many other cities in Umbria or Tuscany - Cortona and Siena, my wife;s favorites, are 1-1.5 hours drive.
Erverything was excellent
I liked this hotel very much. Our room was enormous, the breakfast was impressive. Sangallo is a charming place to stay as a base to visit Perugia and Umbria.
The hotel is perfectly situated among monuments and tourist attractions. Excellent breakfast and comfort. Hi-tech room (e.g. internet-tv in room), very quite, charming at the same time. I will suggest Sangallo Palace to my friends.
