Here you can experience this magical city and region steeped in history, and the wonderful atmosphere of the festival that has an impressive line up of international and up and coming stars. Nearby the calm shores of Lake Trasimeno are amongst one of many beautiful sites to visit in the area.
The concert runs over the course of a week, and during this time, the town is full of jazz and music enthusiasts. Events are held in various venues including the main piazza, smaller piazzas and indoor venues and theatres. You can enjoy dinner or just drinks in many a cafe or restaurant overlooking the piazza whilst you listen to the music and watch a performance.
As a consequence of the summer success of Perugia Jazz Festival, another festival was born in the winter, namely the second jazz festival held in Orvieto over New Year every year. If you don't get enough of the music in July, you can therefore enjoy some more music and a vibrant festival atmosphere in the winter. The winter festival varies in the sense that it covers several music genres, including blues and soul. The many concerts take place on different days and at different times, but the most famous is probably the most beautiful concert with a gospel choir that accompanies the fair in Orvieto´s impressive cathedral on New Year´s Day.
