Meeting Point : Piazza Santa Chiara - Assisi
“Assisi is a very beautiful thing, town, city and sanctuary”, wrote Giosuè Carducci. Country, because it has all the characteristics of the Umbrian village: perched on top of a hill overlooking the valley, small, composed, the same over the centuries. City, because Assisi has played a fundamental role in the history of the world: from here St. Francis left to change (or at least try) the church. Sanctuary, because of the passage of San Francesco and Santa Chiara there remain small and large churches, miraculous places, crypts that attract thousands of people every year.
With this private walking tour of about 3 hours you can discover Assisi. Your guide, exclusive only for you, will tell you about the history, art and local traditions of one of the most famous hill towns in Italy.
After meeting your private guide, your tour will begin with a visit to the ruins of the ancient Roman Amphitheater, later used as a stone quarry for the construction of the houses in the area during the Middle Ages. From this incredible vantage point you can admire one of the most beautiful views of the city from the medieval Rocca Maggiore.
You will then continue walking through the alleys and medieval squares of Assisi, until you reach the Cathedral of San Rufino, the Basilica of Santa Chiara and the Piazza del Comune, which is the main square of the city. Here you can admire the Temple of Minerva, one of the best preserved Roman temples in Italy and surrounded by some impressive medieval government buildings.
The tour continues with a visit to the Basilica of San Francesco, famous above all for the frescoes of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, made by the best Italian artists of the time, including the famous Giotto.
Then we are in Umbria, so there is a great tradition of hospitality and gastronomy with excellent products, in fact, at the end of your tour, you will be offered a tasting of local products to conclude your visit by tasting the local specialties.
