Sample views / photos of Italy enroute to University of Perugia

Ciao tutti!  Perugia - the town where I studied Italian in August.

"Perugia is the capital of the province of Umbria, Italy.  Umbria is known as the "green heart" of Italy because it's located in the centre of Italy and it's covered by woods.  It's kind of like B.C.!  It's also a very hilly province so ladies... if you want to lose weight but also want to be able to eat tons and have fun, I recommend the Umbria weight loss program!"
