Hotel Brufani Palace

Heritage hotel in Perugia

From its hilltop perch, this five-star hotel has captivating views of the valley below and hills beyond. The hotel itself matches this initial impression with frescoed public rooms, impeccably decorated bedrooms with marble bathrooms, a garden terrace for summer dining, and helpful multilingual staff. Swim over Etruscan ruins in the subterranean fitness centre. Parking is €20.

Third-floor rooms have traded carpeted floors for parquet and received new light fixtures and curtains, among other upgrades, in 2017.
