Description

Assisi and St. Francis’ Basilica
from Rome

Take a break from the crowds and dive into the spiritual realm offered by Assisi, St. Francis’ and St. Clare’s hometown: this peaceful Medieval city, in the Umbria region, is surrounded by nature and set on the Appennini mountains.
This full-day tour starts at the designated meeting point. Wear a pair of comfortable shoes, some church appropriate clothing and get ready for a lovely walking tour! 

We’ll drive to Assisi through the Roman countryside with our tour leader on board and, once there, you’ll meet your professional tour guide, who’ll provide you with earphones and an audio receiver, so you don’t miss any of the tour’s details.

Assisi is a beautiful medieval town that was founded by the ancient Roman Empire. After the fall of the Roman Empire it was dominated by the Goths and later, the Logobards. After the year 1000, it saw the extraordinary spread of the monastic movement and particularly the Benedictines. 

The spot of main interest in the town is obviously the Papal Basilica of Saint Francis, a UNESCO World Heritage site: it’s decorated with frescoes by numerous late medieval painters from the Roman and Tuscan schools including Cimabue, Giotto, and Simone Martini.

You’ll also visit St. Clare’s Basilica, a Romanesque church dedicated to the follower of St. Francis, and the majestic Basilica of Saint Mary of the Angels: it encloses the 9th century little church called Porziuncola, the sacred place where the young Francis of Assisi found his true vocation and decided to live his life in poverty.

Lunch is included in the tour, so you don’t have to worry about packing your own snacks.

With a group of no more than 15 participants, you’ll be sure to enjoy this relaxing place to the max!
