Perugia is Umbria's "Capital", and is situated on a 500 m high hill with a splendid view over the landscape. The city is relatively large, with approx. 150,000 inhabitants and 2 universities with 40,000 students, so there are many young people around. Perugia consists of a wide pedestrian main street, which natural assembly point is Piazza IV Novembre, where there is a large fountain from the 1200s and the gothic cathedral of San Lorenzo. The cathedral has beautiful paintings on its ceiling, but is otherwise very bleak. There are nice outdoor restaurants in the main streeet, but they are quite touristy. However, if you look in the small winding streets, you will find many more local restaurants. On Piazza Italia there is, furthermore, a large outdoor flea market in weekends.
