Private HD Assisi Tour

Excursions, Faith
Meet your personal driver at your hotel lobby and start an amazing daytrip in the Umbria region. Today you will discover 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. She is buried in the crypt of this church. Continuing your walk, you will reach Piazza del Comune: here are the civic buildings dating to the medieval Commune, the People’s Tower and an interesting Roman sacred construction named Minerva temple. 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. If you still have one hour free, take the chance to visit the Basilica, it will be a one of a kind experience! At the end of the tour your personal driver will lead you back to your location.
