It was an amazing day!! The team formed by the driver Roberto, the friendly guide Paola, the local guide Sandra and especially Claudio, our Portuguese translator with his patience and attention to us. All very competent. Everything was very organized and punctual, from the hotel pickup to the “technical” stops during the trip. The visits to the churches were made in a very well-prepared itinerary, alternating walks through the little streets of Assisi and lunch. The church of Orvieto is simply wonderful!!! The information we received from the team was useful and very interesting.

The best experience we had in Italy. Excellent tour led by our guides ( Fabi and Gian Lucca). Thanks to our guides for providing us with a beautiful tour of Cascia and Assisi. I highly recommend. 10 stars
