Full description

Download an informative audio guide to explore Assisi’s most famous site. Discover everything about the Upper and Lower Basilica, the House of the Tomb, as well as the crypt of St. Francis. Learn all about the masterpieces contained within including pieces by Cimabue and Giotto, and frescoes by Giotto. Learn fascinating stories about the façade of the upper Basilica, with its large portal with double doors and a large rose window framed with symbols of the evangelists that dominate Assisi’s skyline. Interestingly, this façade does not rest on the walls of the lower Basilica and did not suffer any damage as a result of the 1997 earthquake which caused extensive damage inside, destroying artworks by Giotto and Cimabue which have to date been only partially, albeit masterfully, restored. With this audioguide, you will discover the most fascinating masterpieces Cimabue, Giotto, Pietro Cavallini, Jacopo Torriti were involved with and at a later time also the Sienese painter Simone Martini and Pietro Lorenzetti. Once inside, you will be able to see frescoes by Giotto, considered to be one of the most important painters of the Middle Ages and the inventor of perspective.

Please note that the Basilica is free to visit. This experience isn't a ticket entrance, but a digital audio guide so you can learn and appreciate all the masterpieces inside one of the most magnificent Churches in the world.
