Perugia is a city in Italy, and is the capital of the province of Perugia and of the region of Umbria. It has a population of approximately 170,000 people. The teacher of the famous Renaissance artist Raphael was born near Perugia. One of the most important economic activities in the city is the manufacturing of chocolates. Perugia is famous for the Umbria Jazz Festival. The city is also famous for its medieval art. There are three airports close to this city: San Francesco d'Assisi Airport, which is within Perugia, Milan-Malpensa Airport, and Rome's Airport.
Public transportation in the city consists of suburban trains, buses, and the metro. The suburban trains are owned by Trenitalia, the buses are owned by Busitalia, and the metro is owned by Perugia's community. The metro service of the city is called MiniMetrò. The city is hilly. As a result, people frequently use the buses and the metro.
The metro was proposed during the early 1990s. Then, in 1998, a company called MiniMetrò S.P.A was created with the sole purpose of building the metro. The goal of the construction of the metro was to offer rides to Monteluce from Pian di Massiano. Some people were against the idea of building the metro since Perugia is a geographically small city. Therefore, a metro service seemed useless for the city.
Nevertheless, the metro was inaugurated on January 29th, 2008. The metro's final design was accepted by MiniMetrò S.P.A on October 2002. The metro's construction began on 2003. Over 9,000 people rode the metro during its first week.
