Città della Pieve

Città della Pieve  is one of our Medieval villages recommended for visit for its proximity to il Fontanaro (only 13 km). From the city you can see both Lake Trasimeno and Lake of Chiusi.

It was the town of Pietro Vannucci, better known by the name of il Perugino.

For turistic attractions, please go to the tourist office in Piazza Matteotti.

You can park close by, at parking lot at the end of via Marconi.

Also from Paciano you can walk the hills to reach Citta’ della Pieve, ask us for the walking route.
