Located on the upper floors of Palazzo dei Priori in Perugia’s historic center, the National Gallery of Umbria (Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria) boasts an impressive collection of artwork spanning from the 13th to the 19th century, including many pieces by Pietro Vannucci, known locally as Perugino. These collections are among the most comprehensive in Umbria, showcasing a wide variety of works. Presented in chronological order, the collection includes paintings, sculptures, metal works, fabrics, furniture, and other decorative arts. Tickets can be purchased at the museum book and gift shop on the first floor of Palazzo dei Priori.

The Palazzo dei Priori, which houses the gallery’s 40 rooms, is a stunning example of medieval architecture. It is worth a visit just to see its Romanesque portal and stone atrium, featuring the original bronze statues of the griffin and lion, the symbols of Perugia.
