I would definitely recommend going to a smaller town for studying abroad, not a huge touristy one.

Perugia is a great little town and I loved my time here. Read more

The best viewpoint in the center of Perugia in my opinion is most definatly off of Corso Vennuci at the very end in the little park. You can see the entire town all the way to Assisi on a bright sunny day. The park is very nice and can sit there and won't be bothered. The view is spectacular with all the buildings and even the countryside in the background. It is the quitensestinal italy. Read more
