Overview

Leave your central Siena hotel in the morning and travel east to Cortona, a stunning little hilltop town of ancient origins. The setting for the 2003 rom-com Under the Tuscan Sun, Cortona boasts a wealth of picture-perfect medieval architecture making it a perfect place to spend your morning. Sightsee at leisure or join a walking tour (own expense), seeing sites like Santa Margherita Sanctuary – built to commemorate the patron saint of the city – and the imposing Palazzo Communale. Enjoy a walk and stroll around the city walls.

After your tour, relax with some free time in the town to do as you please. Perhaps find a piazza-side café for lunch (own expense) or stroll around the narrow lanes admiring the sun-bleached stone buildings. Meet back up with your guide at a pre-arranged time to leave Cortona by coach.

Continue your tour traveling south into Umbria to visit Assisi, an enchantingly beautiful hill town, best known for its links to St Francis – a wealthy merchant’s son who chose to embrace poverty and preach on the streets of the town.

Follow in St Francis’ footsteps on a walking tour around Assisi, ambling along winding streets and alleyways and ending up in the spectacular Basilica di San Francesco. See both the upper and lower basilicas -- one lavishly ornate and the other minimalistic and sober in line with St Francis’ teachings. The church is also famous for its Giotto frescoes, and your guide will point out these medieval depictions of St Francis’ life in the town.

Return to your coach for the journey back through the picturesque Tuscan hills to Siena, where you'll arrive in the late afternoon.
