Hotel Ristorante Grifone
of Gianbattista Argentari
The Gryphon a mythical creature with the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion is the ancient symbol of Perugia. This is proved by the sculpture on the facade of Palazzo dei Priori.
It is simply an amazing heritage just one of the thousands you can enjoy while strolling in the historical centre. The food-and-wine marvels are at Argentari’s, the restaurant that proudly upholds regional traditions.
Buon Ricordo speciality
Agnello ai profumi di Colfiorito
Take a map, and have a look where Colfiorito is as it is worth visiting. To get there just drive up to the Chienti Valley: the landscape is breathtaking. When you get to the pass you will immediately grab the meaning of this speciality. The highland landscape discloses seven small valleys full of red-potato and lentil crop growing. It goes without saying that meat and any other local product is absolutely superb.
