The best streets to wander around to get a feel of the old centre are the Corso Vannucci, Via dei Priori, Via A. Pascoli and Corso Cavour.  On the third floor of the Palazzo dei Priori (Corso Vannucci) is the National Gallery of Umbria, the most important collection of medieval and modern art in the whole region. The gallery was set up in the Prior's Palace in 1879 and inaugurated in 1907, on occasion of the famous exhibition of Umbrian Sacred Art, arranged by Francesco Moretti.
