Years ago, during a private tour in the National Gallery of Umbria in Perugia, I came across a journalist: David Lansing.
He was pretty curious and spent all his time in the Gallery trying to steal information from that private group tour.
He told me he was “in a mission” for the National Geographic Traveler magazine.
After that casual yet thrilling encounter gave me the chance to be Lansing’s Virgil for the days he spent in Perugia.
During our tours, I compared Perugia to a woman, with its generous curves and soft hills. David loved that metaphor. In fact he titled the article after my suggestion: Perugia, the world’s sexiest smallt town.
Here is the article Lansing’s article for National Geographic Traveler, including beautiful photos by Justin Guariglia.
Read about Lansing’s itinerary in Perugia and across Umbria.
