I'll be in Italy for 2 weeks this summer, one week at a conference in Perugia, the second on vacation in Rome. I think that an apartment would suit food-minded people like DH and me because we're always salivating over fresh food markets and wishing we had a place to enjoy the fruit, cheese, bread etc. But DH's cousin who lives in Rome is pushing us towards a hotel. Any opinions?
Also, recommendations for good eating in Perugia would be much appreciated. I've found relatively little on this board or elsewhere online. Is this a bad sign? Neither of us has ever been to Perugia so have no idea what local foods to look for, where to eat etc.
