The Corso Vannucci, named after the painter Pietro Vannucci, is the main street of Perugia, Italy. It's a pedestrian area, so it's ideal for strolling around, admiring the beautiful medieval architecture and visiting the numerous shops, bars and cafes. The north end opens into the Piazza IV Novembre, where you can see the Fontana Maggiore and the Palazzo dei Priori. And the Piazza Italia is at the southern end of the Corso Vannucci.

"Corso Vannucci – a people-watching parade

If Perugia is the sun around which the other towns of Umbria orbit, then Corso Vannucci is the proof of its vitality. The Corso is the main thoroughfare and demonstrates how Perugia is a likeable, cultured, walking city. Corso Vannucci, and its early evening passeggiata, can best be appreciated from a café terrace, and includes a parade of relaxed locals and animated foreign students. Bars and cafes abound, including in the side streets just off the Corso. At festival time, especially during Umbria Jazz, the area becomes a cultural hub. Even outside festival time, Corso Vannucci shows that Perugia is a party-loving university city and a pleasure-seeking foodie city.

Strolls along the Corso often end in the Giardini Carducci, set on the site of a demolished fortress. From these gardens are some of the finest views in Perugia, with the hills twinkling under the stars. By day, the views are of the cypress-cloaked hills."
