Perugia (#IJF17)
From Wednesday (April 5, 2017) until Sunday (April 9), beautiful Perugia will host the free International Journalism Festival for the 11th time. You’ll get all the basic infos here:

I prepared a map with all the festival locations and added my personal restaurant and bar recommendations. With the slider in the upper left corner, you can have a look at the list of entries:


Restaurants

Al Mangiar Bene ***** of ***** (Slow food recommendation)

Tel. +39 075 5731047
My favorite restaurant in Perugia. They use organic ingredients, their menu changes with the seasons.

Antica Salumeria Granieri Amato ****
Piazza Matteotti Chiosco
06100 Perugia
Tel. +39 075 8707258
This brilliant street food stand probably offers one of the best deals in town: A sandwich with delicious porchetta is just 3 or 4 euros.

La Bottega di Perugia ****
Piazza Francesco Morlacchi 4
06123 Perugia
Tel +39 075 5732965
Inexpensive, freshly prepared sandwiches (panino & wine: 5 euros). This tiny neighborhood place is always cramped, there only are a few chairs available.

Dempsey’s Perugia ****
Piazza Danti 19

Noisy and crowded, lots of expats. Although the cocktails are inexpensive (e. g., 4 euros for a margarita), the bartenders take pride in their job.
