Private Assisi & Bevagna Tour

Excursions, Religion
Meet your personal driver at your hotel lobby and start an amazing daytrip in the Umbria region. Your first stop will be the town of Assisi, home of the Umbrian religious spirituality. We suggest starting the tour from the upper side of the town so that the downhill itinerary will be more comfortable.
Take your time to discover the heart of the city starting from the St. Clare Basilica: Clare is the founder of the order of the Poor Clares. Continuing your walk, you will reach Piazza del Comune and next, the St. Francis Basilica, jewel in the crown of the Franciscan spirituality and cradle of the medieval European art. The Basilica was founded by Pope Gregory IX and is an architectural masterpiece containing some of the finest paintings of medieval Italian art, from Cimabue to Giotto, Simone Martini, Pietro Lorenzetti, Jacopo Torriti and Pietro Cavallini. The frescoed cycles of the Old and New Testament and the panels on the life of St. Francis reach the climax on the medieval theology whilst the Franciscan Order was growing in power. If you still have one hour free, take the chance to visit the Basilica, it will be a one of a kind experience! After relaxing lunch time (not included), don’t walk back to the up of the hill, your personal driver will meet you at the foot of the hill (near St. Francis Basilica) and continue your daytrip to Bevagna, a charming ancient little town that lies on a fertile plain, close to the Via Flaminia. Take your time to admire Piazza S. Silvestro,
the main square surrounded by two Romanesque style jewels: the Church of San Michele and of San Silvestro, both facing the 13th-century Palazzo dei Consoli. Take the chance to visit the Paper Factory, situated in the remains of the underground curved Roman theatre. It offers the opportunity to discover the ancient craft of making paper out of rags. At the end of the tour your personal driver will lead you back to
your location.
