Collegio del Cambio - Perugia’s exchange guild - was built sometime between 1452 and 1457 and originally operated as a bank. Today, this stunning example of Roman architecture is a destination for travelers who want to experience the beauty of the best-preserved Renaissance frescoes in the nation.
Though only two rooms are open to the public at a cost of about five euros, visitors say what lied behind the massive wooden doors is definitely worth a visit. Stunning works from the artist Perugino, ornate wood carvings and a truly spectacular ceiling make this an attraction that is not to be missed while in Perugia.
Collegio del Cambio is located in Perugia’s Palazzo dei Priori at 25 Corso Vannucci. It is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. and from 2:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. Sundays and public holidays the museum is open from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
