International Journalism Festival for foodies and barflies: #IJF18 guide to Perugia

with one comment

Perugia (#IJF17)
From Wednesday (April 11, 2018) until Sunday (April 15), beautiful Perugia hosts the free International Journalism Festival for the 12th 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 before #IJF17, based on my 2016 experiences – and just added new places which I discovered during #IJF17 (I’ll add comments later). With the slider in the upper left corner, you can have a look at the list of entries:

New entries: Bottega del Vino, Civico 25, Hotel Giò Wine e Jazz Area, Il Vicolo
Societa Anonima (Restaurants); L’Artigiano del Gelato, Organ Ice (Gelati e Dolci); Free Ride, Happy Bar, Il Birrino (Bars)

Restaurants

Al Mangiar Bene ***** of ***** (Slow food recommendation)
Via Della Luna 21
06121 Perugia
Tel. +39 075 5731047
In 2016, this was my favorite restaurant in Perugia. They use organic ingredients, their menu changes with the seasons.

Dempsey’s Perugia ****
