Shots Of Modern West Perugia

[click for larger images]

This light industry and this housing is on the flat land a couple of miles from the walled city.

Perugia extends to the west and the south more than it does to the east and the much more hilly north. The main game in town of course is higher education, but all of the businesses you see here seemed to be prospering.

Chocolate is maybe the largest of the manufacturing industries. There are a lot of sub-offices. Perugia of course is less than 90 minutes drive from Rome, and all along the main highways you see development similar to this.

A prosperous town by the look of it. The roads and communications are excellent, and the housing of a high standard. And it is a pretty and fun place to live.
