Minimetrò is Perugia's automated people mover or just people mover. The minimetro was built as one of the few possible solutions as Perugia's topography is a little bit complicated. The purpose was to connect the city center on top of a mountain with the foot of the mountain. It can move 8000 passengers per hour. It is about 3 kilometers long and have 7 stations: Pian di Massiano, Cortonese, Madonna Alta, Fontivegge, Case Bruciate, Cupa and Pincetto.
It's a really small, simple and modern system. About 25 high-tech cars moving 25 passengers each every 2 minutes at a max speed of 25 km/h.
Minimetrò operates for Monday to Saturday from 7 am to 9:20 pm, and from 8:30 am to 8:30 pm on Sundays and holidays. It closes so early because minimetro makes a noise or hum a bit annoying for the people living near the tracks. Interval between vehicles is about 2.5 minutes.
Tickets can be bought at automatic vending machines.
The revolutionary design of the stations was developed by architect Jean Nouvel and his team, who won in 2008 with this work the Pritzker Architecture Prize.
Perugia International Airport is located about 12kms outside the city. The best way to go to Perugia is by bus.
