About two hours drive north of Rome, a jewel of the medieval hill towns, Assisi is where San Frances and Saint Claire, messengers of poverty and simplicity, were born, lived and died in the early 13th century.
The little city has narrow streets full of art crafts shops and art galleries, its houses and monuments are built with soft pink marble, everywhere there is a serene atmosphere.
We’ll see the Basilica of Saint Clare with her tomb, the Porziuncola’s church where Frances accepted his vocation, the Basilica of San Frances where we’ll enjoy the Saint’s life painted by Giotto on the wall, masterpiece of the Middle ages frescoes, and eventually we’ll visit the crypt that houses San Frances’s body, the target of countless pilgrims for centuries.
A light lunch with local food will make the excursion perfect.
Note that the visit of Assisi can be easily included in your transfer by car between Rome and Florence.
