Full description

Explore the rich culture and history of Assisi, the birthplace of one of Italy's most famous patron saints, Saint Francis, on a guided walking tour. Along your way, marvel at long-standing Roman ruins and admire the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi up close.

Walk through the town's oldest quarters, marveling at the ruins of the Roman amphitheater that still stand strong today. These ruins are perfectly integrated between the medieval houses that are still inhabited by locals today.

Then, admire the city from a different vantage point from the medieval Rocca Maggiore. Afterwards, stroll through the town to visit the Cathedral of San Rufino. Here, learn about Saint Francis' baptismal in the cathedral and take your time walking under its impressive and historic arches.

Next, see the Basilica of Santa Chiara and the Piazza del Comune, which is the main square of the city. Here you can admire the Temple of Minerva, one of the best preserved Roman temples in Italy, surrounded by some impressive medieval government buildings.

Finally, walk through the splendid Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi with your guide. Perched atop a hill overlooking the surrounding landscape, the basilica's many archways, open squares, and stunning 13th and 14th-century frescoes will stay imprinted in your mind.

We were traveling from Rome and had a very limited time for stopping at Assisi. Alessandra was a wonderful guide, very accommodating and extremely knowledgeable. We spent wonderful couple hours with her, learned a lot, and took home with us beautiful images of Assisi. We are so glad we decided to do this tour. Thank you!

This was not our original tour but there was not enough participation for that tour to proceed so we did the next best thing. We had a private walking tour of the Basilica. Our guide was great and walked us all around beautiful Assisi. She is extremely knowledgeable and explained about St. Francis and his life, the church as well as St. Clare. She also told us about the area. It rained a little in the afternoon but was a great day - so peaceful and beautiful.
