Rocca Paolina information
Lonely Planet review
At the southern end of Corso Vannucci is the tiny Giardini Carducci , with expansive views across the city's spires to the countryside and cypress-cloaked hills beyond. The gardens stand atop a once-massive 16th-century fortress, now known as the Rocca Paolina. Built by Pope Paolo III Farnese in the 1540s, it wiped out entire sections of a formerly wealthy neighbourhood.
Now used as the throughway for the scale mobili (escalators), its nooks and crannies are venues for art exhibits and the last weekend of the month sees Perugia's antiques market held here.
