Private Perugia & Assisi 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 Perugia, the Regional capital and largest city of Umbria, situated on a panoramic rise. It is a surprising city thanks to its variety and quality of ancient and medieval testimonies. Take your time to walk along the characteristic streets and amazing buildings, such as the Fontana Maggiore, the
symbol of the city. The Fountain was created at the end of the 13th century to provide a water output to the medieval aqueduct. Don’t miss a look to the Priori Palace and just next to it a typical Etruscan Arch, the monumental city gate of Etruscan time, extremely well preserved. After relaxing lunch time (not included), continue your daytrip to 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. If you still have time, 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 pick you up near the St. Francis Basilica and lead you back to your location..
