What to expect

Enjoy a walking tour of Assisi and explore Italy’s famous pilgrimage site. Stroll the maze of medieval streets, and visit both the Basilicas of Santa Claire and Saint Francis to see one of Italy’s largest collections of sacred art. Located on a gentle hill under the summit of Monte Subasio, the fabled Umbrian town of Assisi is the most famous pilgrimage site in Italy, a consequence of being the birthplace of Saint Francis.

Born in the village of warm pink stone in 1182, Francis founded the mendicant order to which he gave his name in 1210. Prior to his birth, Assisi had been settled by ancient Umbrian tribes, and later became an important Roman town. Thanks to the rich history and the blend of incredible architecture and art, Assisi is a multi-faceted town.

Discover all these facets on an amazing private tour. Visit the Basilica of Santa Chiara, dedicated to the founder of the Order of Poor Ladies, and the Papal Basilica of Saint Francis built between 1228 and 1253, now home to the consecrated remains of the saint. The stunning monument is also said to have the best collection of sacred art in Italy, including frescoes and paintings by Cimabue, Giotto and Lorenzetti.
