We parked at Piazza Partigiani just so we can take the escalators through Rocca Paulina to the old town. It's very impressive and the stone is so beautiful. We are glad we did it.

Surprising but in a good way. Really didn't expect much but was enthralled by the maze of caverns steeped in local history. Served by modern escalators! A must visit

It’s a nifty of underground tunnels, with good historical descriptions, which is also clean and well-lit (and includes escalators that take you from convenient parking lots to the historical centre of Perugia). Highly recommend!

A complete surprise to find yourself easily inside this amazing underground 16C fortress built over other eras structures. Stop for the impressive immersive media art installation to gain a background. Truly a pleasant surprise.

Very much enjoyed by our 9 and 7 year olds, unfortunately the odd interactive display was out of order. The video room was very cool - not entirely sure what the message was but it was enjoyable nonetheless. Make sure you go all the way...More

I think there are no problems is like to be in a building with large Rooms. It is not a catacomb. It is the first floor of a fortress spaces are large but with few windows.
