|Subject: Re: Travel in Umbria|
If using public transportation, I would suggest Perugia if you are still thinking of Perugia or Assisi as a base.
In Assisi, the train station is 2 miles from town, and at the bottom of a steep hill. Perugia has an "in town" train station, as it is a much larger place.
If Assisi, you may have to use taxis to get to and from your bus or train. Or perhaps you are a better hiker than I ! ;-)
