Some reasons to come and visit Foligno.
Certainly for its historic center, airy and tidy, made up of buildings mainly from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. For the medieval houses and churches, scattered among the alleys of the center, precious evidence of a past of greatness. Through its streets, which after the recent repaving, offer the opportunity for comfortable walks among historic buildings and shops.
The itinerary develops within the historic center and includes a visit to
