Full description
Tour the holy shrines of Assisi on this full-day tour of Umbria, with pick-ups from Foligno, Spoleto, Todi, Perugia, and Gubbio. Explore the birthplace of St. Francis and learn more about Italy’s famous patron saint. Admire Roman ruins integrated into medieval houses, they're still lived in by locals! Among the historic monuments of St. Francis you will visit is the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, where he first renounced the world to live in poverty. Go to the Convent of San Damiano to learn about Saint Claire, founder of the Order of Poor Ladies, and visit the Eremo delle Carceri (Carceri Hermitage) in the forest gorge above Assisi, where St. Francis came to pray. After lunch, drive to the walled town of Spello on the slopes of Mount Subasio, with commanding views of the Umbrian plains, groves of olives, and vineyards. There will be the chance to taste wines and olive oils during your tour, and if it’s a market day you can see the thriving trade of these ancient products still carried on to this day. You will also stop at the tiny hamlet of Collepino, perched in the forests between Assisi and Spello, it's a former settlement of shepherds and woodcutters.

Fantastic Day in Assisi and Spello

Brilliant day, even though the weather was challenging. Maurizio from Le Vie dell Umbria was my driver. His local knowledge of this area was excellent. The day was not rushed. You are given plenty of time to view the sites. The car was very clean and comfortable to travel in. He made the day an experience to remember. Thank you

wonderful

I visited all the places that are included in the tour and also a little more, thanks to Maurizio the guide. He explained to me everything and he gave me all the directions when I had a free time for myself, so I didn't get lost. He is an excellent guide and a good companion to travel with.

Tour was beautiful , spiritual and memorable!

Caludio picked me up at hotel and we headed to Basilica Di S Francesco and all the other incredible major church sites. As a Fransican this was a trip of a life time. Claudia was attentive yet most respectful of my moments of deep reflection , prayer and sheer joy. We had a beautiful lunch in the central square P.zza Del Commune, and headed towards Spello for a refreshing gelato. A wonderfull experience! Victor
