Private Assisi & Montefalco 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, 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. 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, Montefalco, known as the “balcony of Umbria”, situated in a panoramic position with splendid views over the Umbrian Valley. Its churches have numerous treasures of art and spirituality, such as the Church-Museum of St. Francis, that
preserves extraordinary frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli and Perugino ore the church of St. Chiara di Montefalco that contains a chapel decorated with medieval frescoes and a reliquary. A stroll through the small town will take you through charming pink-stone alleys, beautiful stone churches, and breath-taking panoramas opening onto the valley just below. At the end of the tour your personal driver will lead you back to your
location.
