Citta della Pieve (Umbria)

Città della Pieve is a town in the Province of Perugia, in the Umbria region. Etruscan tombs have been found in the neighbourhood, but it is not certain that the present town stands on an ancient site. The historical centre still maintains the typical medieval urban layout on which Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassic buildings were later constructed, proof of the artistic vitality of this city. Città della Pieve contains many monuments and places of interest such as the Cathedral of Santi Gervasio e Protasio, which houses works by two great Città della Pieve artists - Il Perugino and Il Pomarancio - and the Oratory of Santa Maria dei Bianchi, home to the extraordinary Adoration of the Magi by Il Perugino. Other sights are the city tower and the Bishop's tower, the Rocca (Fortress) with its five towers, Palazzo della Corgna (XVI century), home to the city library and exhibition space, Palazzo Bandini (XVI century) and Palazzo Baglioni, which dates to the XVIII century.

What others are saying about Umbria

I am trying to find my Italian roots.  I have documents for my grandfather but I want to find his parents and grandparents.

I have names in my grandmother's line but I need help to validate my findings.  What sources can I use while I am in Italy.

Hi, does anyone have any recommendations for where to find an Italian/English speaking caretaker for a property we're buying in Umbria? 

@joncoh asks:

Hi there - it's time to renew our house/contents insurance, and yet again Intasure have bumped up their premium, this time by nearly 20%, despite the fact that we have never claimed, and they have also removed earthquake cover.
