Overview

Get picked up at your hotel in Rome or make your own way to the prearranged location in central Rome. Then, climb aboard an air-conditioned coach for the 2-hour drive to Assisi, a striking hill town in Umbria. On the way there, learn about the history of Assisi as well as the man who put it on the spiritual map: St Francis of Assisi.

Once there, explore Francis’ eponymous basilica, erected in the 13th century. The UNESCO World Heritage site is placed where Francis’ body rests and is one of the most popular pilgrimage sites in the Catholic world.

Next, break for a delicious 3-course lunch at a quaint, local restaurant. Feast on traditional delights such as pasta al pomodoro (pasta in a tomato and basil sauce) and roast chicken with potatoes.

Then, visit the Basilica of Santa Chiara, named for St Clair, who saw St Francis as a spiritual father figure. Formerly known as St George (and the spot where Francis’ body rested before the construction of the basilica named for him), the church has a simple yet striking façade.

Finally, visit the Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli, at the base of the hill that Assisi sits on. This spiritual spot, constructed in Mannerist style of architecture in the 17th century, is a popular pilgrimage site because it houses the Porziuncola, a small church that St Francis had restored after having a vision of Jesus.
